The PSI aims to:

  • create a focal point at UQ for precision-sensing research and applications 
  • grow UQ’s ties with industry and defence
  • strengthen UQ’s position as an international leader in the translation of quantum nanoscience and photonics into real-world applications.


It will do this by:

  • developing an Optoelectronic Integration Facility (OIF) capable of developing ideas into industry-ready prototypes
  • providing matching start-up funds for collaborative research with industry and defence
  • engaging with defence and State Government individuals and organisations to establish national and state-wide precision sensing initiatives.
