• Project: Smart quality assurance of virgin olive oils (Sep 2017 – date) Student: Z. Yu, summer project at iPL, The University of Sydney Summary: This project aims to develop a smartphone-based optical fibre spectrofluorimeter for distinguishing extra virgin olive oil from low-quality refined olive at different stages of their life cycle from production to retail.

• Project: Security protocols for IoT-based devices (Sep 2017 – Dec 2017) Student: Z. Yi & M. Aamir, Capstone project at WiNG, The University of Sydney Summary: One project proposed a novel security protocol based on machine learning for IoT constrained devices in smart home system. Another project proposed a novel caching mechanism aiming to improve the performance of a heterogeneous cellular network by reducing data traffic.

• Project: Time-resolved and temperature tunable smartphone fluorimeter (Sep 2016 – Feb 2017) Student: Z. Yu, summer project at iPL in collaboration with A/Prof. P. J. Rutledge at School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney. Summary: In this project, a smartphone fluorimeter capable of time-resolved fluorescence intensity measurements has been developed. It’s performance has been demonstrated by measuring the temperature dependence fluorescence intensity for four emitters.

• Project: 3D printing of optical fibre preforms (May 2015 – Dec 2016) Student: J. E. Comatti, G. Balle, L. Chartier, T. Athanaze, and M. S. Rahme – intern and Talented Student Program (TSP) projects at iPL in collaboration with Prof. G. D. Peng at UNSW, A/Prof. S. G. Leon-Saval at School of Physics, The University of Sydney & A/Prof. M. Lancry at Université Paris-Sud, France. Summary: This project developed the world first optical fibre from a 3D printed preform. Our method has been demonstrated successfully as a low-cost technology for drawing polymer fibres. More broadly, 3D printers capable of processing soft glasses, silica, and other materials are likely to come on line in the not-so-distant future. The recent advancement on the project is the step-index preform from a dual-head 3D printer and more recently, we have successfully drawn tapered fibre directly using the thermal extrusion of a printer nozzle.

• Project: 3D printing material for photonics applications (Sep 2015 – date) Student: M.S. Rahme TSP program at iPL, The University of Sydney Summary: The project aims to produce 3D printable filament by tuning material composition to control refractive index and other optical properties.

• Project: Chlorophyll measurements of water using smartphone spectrometer (Feb 2015 – May 2015) Student: TSP projects of 4 undergraduate students at iPL in collaboration with Prof. Maxwell Crossley at School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney Summary: The project aimed to demonstrate the application of a smartphone spectrometer for measuring chlorophyll concentration in water in the field and compare the performance against a benchtop spectrofluorimeter.

• Project: Lab-in-a-Phone – A smartphone fluorimeter for measuring water pH (Dec 2013 – Jun 2014) Student: T. L. Yen, internship project at iPL in collaboration with Dr. S. Ast and A/Prof. P. J. Rutledge at School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney Summary: Using the state-of-the-art technology of smartphone, this project developed a smartphone-based intensity fluorimeter which has been demonstrated for pH measurement and mapping of drinking and environmental water across different sites in Sydney city.
