About us

The Centre for Advanced Solid and Liquid based Electronics and Optics (CASLEO) has a mission to create novel materials and systems that have impacted and will continue to influence the well-being of people for the better.

In the past, the members of CASLEO have proven their capabilities in developing systems that have significantly influenced the areas of liquid metals, sensors, electronic materials, optics, microfluidics, and medical devices. Professor Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh, the director of the centre, has already led his group to the invention of the first ingestible chemical sensor that was successfully tested in humans. The concept of liquid metals as reaction media was coined by Kourosh and his group. Additionally, the first report on chemical vapour deposition of two-dimensional metal chalcogenides also originated from his group. Kourosh is one of the 2018 Australian Research Council (ARC) Laureate Fellows, and is also a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET). CASLEO also receives funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Australia.

The mission of CASLEO is to create new technologies and materials that can improve the efficiencies of the electronic and optical based systems of the future. CASLEO members are talented and enthusiastic researchers who have dedicated their efforts to this aim.
