Griffith partners with BluGlass for power electronics

Griffith Enterprise
Australian technology innovator BluGlass Limited has invested $600,00 in Griffith University to develop power electronics. BluGlass will be leading the two-year cash investment – inclusive of a $300,000 grant from the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre – to develop next-generation GaN transistors, called High Performance Normally OFF GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT). The technology promises a […]

Highly sensitive nanosensors to prevent potential catastrophes

Engineering, IT and aviation
Griffith University researchers are creating tiny high-tech chips that will detect problems in ageing gas and oil pipelines, preventing potential catastrophic events. A team from Griffith’s Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre is developing the novel, low-cost and highly sensitive compact sensors that will detect and monitor changes in harsh environments, such as strain, pressure, flow rate, […]
