The NSW Government will contribute $300 000 to a photonics  research project between the ARC Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh Bandwidth  Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) at the University of Sydney, and Technion, the  Israel institute of technology. Centre Director, Professor Ben Eggleton, said  the partnership would allow CUDOS and Technion to work together on fundamental  aspects of nanophotonics and towards realising chip-based optical interconnects  which can revolutionise computing—dramatically increasing the available  bandwidth and, therefore, processing speed.
