From the Director’s desk
Director, Professor Xinghuo Yu
First, I would like to pass on my heartfelt congratulations to our PTRI members who have been successful in the ARC Linkage Round 2 2009 for 2010 Funding round. RMIT has had 10 successful applications, with a total ARC funding of $2.04 million. Partner contributions for the successful projects total $3.1 million. PTRI members contributed to 5 out of the 10 successful RMIT grants. Our success rate on submitted applications contributes to RMIT’s national ranking for this ARC Round as 8th on the number of proposals approved and 9th on the value of approved ARC funding. RMIT was second in the ATN on both of these measures. This is an excellent outcome. I congratulate those who were successful with their applications.
It is important to note that most of these successes are the results of cross-school collaborations, contributions of our institute funded research/postdoctoral fellows, and our new adjunct professor in PTRI. The areas covered are diverse; from nano science and engineering to aerospace engineering, computer security, and public health!
In parallel to our major funding developments, construction of the institute’s strategic framework is continuing with project team workshops being held to develop research themes aligned with emerging technologies and PTRI’s expertise. Our goals will be to establish key technology platforms and critical masses of “centres of excellence” based on our past and current successes that will drive our future.
To ensure member consultation in the planning process, you are all invited to attend the PTRI Planning Day which is to be held on Tuesday 31 August 2010 at Leonda by the Yarra in Hawthorn. The Planning Day will provide you with on opportunity to contribute to PTRI’s Strategic Plan for 2011 and beyond - I am looking forward to working with you to achieve these goals.
I trust you find the information in this publication useful and I look forward to your feedback and contributions.
Professor Xinghuo Yu

Want to know what PTRI are working on? Here are some project updates:
- Success with the Ergonomic Frames for Boccia Ramps at the Boccia World Championships (Lisbon, Portugal, 31/05-10/06/2001). The frames were designed by Mr Mathew Dickson and Professor Franz K. Fuss for the Australian Paralympic Committee and the Australian Boccia Team (under an RMIT research contract).
The new design allows quick handling of ramp and saves time for the athlete to concentrate on the shots. Three Australian athletes moved into the finals, which is a huge success for our team, but unfortunately did not win any medals.The frame is shown on the following website http://vancouver2010.paralympic.org.au/news/australia-through-boccia-finals (below the blue ramp)
- In addition, the SportzEdge Aerodynamics team under Dr Firoz Alam investigated the soccer World Cup ball (Jabulani, by Adidas)and their findings were that the ball’s knuckle effect is more pronounced than the 2006 Teamgeist ball.
Nano Materials and Devices
Dr Anthony O’Mullane is one of many researchers working on these new projects:
- Bio sensors project: This project aims to develop nanostructured surfaces of gold which can either directly, or after appropriate surface modification with polymers or self assembled monolayers, detect important biomolecules such as glucose, dopamine, ascorbic acid and uric acid. These surfaces can also be used to monitor levels of hydrogen peroxide and hydrazine in aqueous solutions.
Green synthesis project: Organic synthesis employing heterogeneous catalysts has several beneficial effects on the environment since it involves the reuse of precious metal catalysts, thus forming less waste and resulting in lower metal contamination in the final pharmaceutically important molecules.
In an ideal setting one could make a double benefit of the heterogeneous catalysis by using the same active system for multiple reactions in one pot. One of the major challenges faced by the fine chemicals industry in recent times is the synthesis of these target molecules by a large number of different reaction steps involving elaborate work-up and refining procedures.
The recently introduced one-pot synthetic approach not only helps to improve atom economy, but also reduces the number of steps in isolation and purification of the intermediate compounds in the case of a multistep synthesis. This project aims to develop metallic/multi-metallic colloids as effective catalysts for the production of fine chemical for the pharmaceutical industry.
Project feature….focus on….
Platform Technologies News recently talked to Dr Thach Nguyen, project leader within the PTRI Nano Materials and Devices program.
Tell us about the background of your project:
The silicon microelectronics industry is on the verge of seeking photonic solutions to overcome the bandwidth limitations and heat dissipation problems of silicon electronic circuits in order to continue its advancement. This has led to the explosion of the field silicon photonics in recent years. A new phenomenon in silicon photonic optical waveguide was discovered by Professor Mitchell at RMIT and his collaborators at Lehigh University in the USA in 2007. This phenomenon has posed a challenge for traditional circuit design that needs to be overcome. On the other hand, this new phenomenon also presents exciting opportunities for new classes of silicon photonic devices.
Please describe your role within the project:
In close collaboration with Professor Arnan Mitchell, Professor Thomas Koch and his team at the Centre for Optical Technologies, Lehigh University in the USA, we are investigating the lateral leakage behaviour in high index contrast silicon photonic optical waveguides. They have provided a scientific explanation for the recently discovered resonant leakage behaviour. New theory to predict the lateral leakage behaviour in silicon photonic devices, particularly in the context of disk and ring micro-resonators, has been developed. These are the first predictions of such behaviour in silicon photonics. Preliminarily experimental verification of such behaviour is being conducted. These findings will help the realisation of high-Q resonators with strong evanescent fields which are important components for sensing, filters and most importantly, silicon based laser being pursued by Lehigh and their collaborators.
What is the aim of your research:
The aim of this research is to study the lateral leakage behaviour in silicon photonic optical waveguide, and to conceive and explore novel waveguide structures to suppress this leakage behaviour, enabling low-loss highly evanescent silicon photonic devices such as high-Q resonators and laser cavities. We also aim to exploit the leakage behaviour through control of the leakage radiation by borrowing concepts from the fields of RF, microwave and antenna device engineering to realise new generation of silicon photonic circuits including highly wavelength selective filters, polarization diversity circuits.
Describe your background and expertise.
I am a research fellow at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and I was recently awarded an ARC Postdoctoral (APD) Fellowship to work on this silicon photonic integrated optics research.
What is the expected completion date of the project?
The project was supported by a DIISR International Science Linkage grant in 2009. The team was also successful in obtaining an ARC Discovery grant to investigate how the newly discovered leakage behaviour can be ultilised to realise a whole new class silicon photonic devices. The ARC Discovery grant project will run for the next 4 years.
Tell us about your collaborator:
Key collaborator in this project is Professor Thomas Koch, director of the Center for Optical Technologies at Lehigh University, who is an original pioneer of integrated optics and silicon photonics. In March 2010, Professor Koch visited RMIT and gave a seminar on the future of silicon photonics. Professor Koch’s visit to RMIT was supported by the RMIT Foundation International Research Exchange Fellowship.
Platform’s two minute interview with Jinhu Lu
Position: Professor and ARC Future Fellow
Area: Complex Systems and Complex Networks
How long have you been with RMIT?
Only 2 weeks.
What is your current position at RMIT?
Professor and ARC Future Fellow.
Where did you work prior to starting at RMIT?
Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Tell us a bit about your research and its past and future implications...
Over the last decades, complex networks have been intensively studied in all fields of sciences and humanities. Typical examples of complex networks include the Internet, the World Wide Web, local computer networks, telephone call graphs, electrical power grids, biological neural networks, food webs, cellular and metabolic networks, coauthor-ship and citation networks of scientists, etc. Generally speaking, a complex network is a graph with a large set of interconnected nodes, where the nodes are the basic units of the system with specific dynamical and information contents, while the edges are the connections measuring the interactions among the nodes. The research of network structure and dynamics has a wide variety of applications in real-world social, biological, and engineering systems, such as smart grid and cloud computing.
What challenges do you think are ahead in 2010 and beyond in your specific field?
The challenging questions are: How is the structure of a network related to its function and behavior? What mathematical and statistical models accurately capture the important characteristics of a network’s structure? Also, can these theoretical and experiential models predict a network’s future behavior?
What is important to you in your work?
Interest is the most important thing in my work.
What is it in your job that holds your interest?
I love the diversity and challenge of working in my research and teaching. It is very satisfying to continuously discover new problems and then try to solve them via cooperation with some colleagues and students.
What is your favourite place in the world and why?
My favourite place is the Three Gorge, located in Yichang City of China since it is the most famous sightseeing site in my hometown.
What is the best piece of advice you have received?
The best piece of advice was from my father. Life is too short to be wasted whining.
What is something about yourself that most of your colleagues wouldn’t know?
I would like to talk and discuss with all colleagues and students.
