ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science logo


The Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science is funded by the Australian Research Council to bring together researchers and industry to discover new ways to source and use energy.

The Centre is a collaboration between Australian universities and international partners to research better ways to manipulate the way light energy is absorbed, transported and transformed in advanced molecular materials.

They work with industry partners to find innovative solutions for renewable energy in:

  • solar energy conversion,
  • energy-efficient lighting and displays,
  • security labelling and optical sensor platforms for defence.
