A multidisciplinary research lab that harnesses the power of immersive technologies to explore complex topics through 3D computer animation, data visualisation and virtual reality (VR) immersive design.

Advanced Fluid Dynamics

Capabilities include biomedical fluid dynamics, with work relevant to arterial flows and haemodialysis, and the experimental area of laser fluid diagnostics. The lab has a four particle image velocimetry PIV) system and a Dantec three-component laser doppler anemometry (LDA) system.

Optics & Radiometry Lab (ORLAB)

A test, calibration and research facility for light, colour, and optical testing. It is NATA accredited for ISO 17025.

Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics

The largest genomics facility at any Australian university, the centre is equipped with sequencing technology, expression analysis and high throughput microarray systems. It provides single cell genomic services, analysis of the microbiome, genome, and epigenome, and is NATA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017.

Recombinant Products Facility (RPF)

Partners can access protein production, purification, and characterisation services, along with sample harvest and conditioning. The facility operates a quality management system and is accredited for ISO 9001:2015.

Research Imaging NSW (RINSW)

A state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging facility with support for collaborative projects. The facility comprises two 3T MRI systems: the Siemens Magnetom Vida and the Magnetom Prisma, in a purpose-designed space in the Prince of Wales Hospital.

School of Electrical Engineering & Telecommunications

The school operates multiple labs including: 

  • Audio anechoic chamber 

  • Australian Centre for Renewable Energy has equipment to monitor the characteristics of inverters from renewable sources such as PV. 

  • Communication Network Labs facilities performance analysis of end terminals and contains a large-scale simulation of networked systems. 

  • High Voltage Lab offers testing (AC, DC, and impulse voltages), partial discharge detection equipment, transformer ratio arm bridges, recover voltage testing, thermal testing, and variable frequency testing of insulation equipment. 

  • Mobile Communication Labs include facilities for testing GSM, IS-95, 3G, PCS RF and antenna design. 

  • Photonics facilities for fabrication of polymer and silica optical fibres and optical waveguides. 

  • Power Electronics & Drives Lab contains invert/conductor systems, data acquisition systems and finite element analysis software for magnetic, thermal, and electric field modelling. 

  • Systems Neuroscience & Biomedical Engineering allows for the study of human movement control systems including electrical activity from muscles, nerves and the brain and measurements of joint angles and forces.
