Driven by discovery

Elusive excitonic insulator observed by researchers

New phase of matter was first predicted in the 1960s Researchers have found evidence of a new phase of matter first predicted in the 1960s – the excitonic insulator. ARC Centre of Excellence for Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET) researchers from the University of Wollongong (UOW) and Monash University conducted the study.

Distinguished Professor in Queen's Birthday Honours

Distinguished Professor Shi Xue Dou AM was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for “significant service to science education in the field of superconducting and electronic materials.”

Breakthrough boosts performance of sodium-sulfur batteries

Researchers from the University of Wollongong have manufactured a nanomaterial that acts as a superior cathode for room-temperature sodium-sulfur batteries, making them a more attractive option for large-scale energy storage.
