Welcome to CUDOS @ MQ

The Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) is an ARC funded Centre of Excellence collaboration combining the established expertise of researchers at the University of Sydney, Macquarie University, University of Technology Sydney, Australian National University, Swinburne University of Technology, RMIT University and Monash University.

CUDOS is playing a pivotal role in demonstrating ground-breaking developments in ultrafast signal processors, quantum photonic processors, and integrated photonic devices for the mid infrared.
