Research success

  • The bionic eye

    Laser nerve stimulation is the focus of Swinburne's optic research, developing a vision of prosthesis which may result in a tiny laser device fitted into spectacles. Much like a cochlear implant restores hearing, this laser device has the potential to restore sight.

  • Early cancer detecting sensor

    Researchers at Swinburne are developing a cutting edge sensor that will help detect and diagnose cancers early, potentially saving more lives. This new technology is the vision of PhD researcher Emma Carland and is based on an optical-fibre touch sensor as fine as a human hair.
