Thanks to everyone who visited us at the UNSW Innovation Summit! Check out some pictures on our media page.
The project “High performance optical telemetry system for ocean monitoring” worth more than A$ 3.2 million has been supported by the government with A$ 764,000 under the Cooperative Research Centres Projects stream of the CRC Programme. The project seeks to develop an optical towed array sonar based on Zedelef’s transducers and it is a collaboration[…]
Zedelef has closed its second seed funding round. We welcome our new investors, which include Melbourne Angels, Brisbane Angels and Hunter Angels.
The “Zedelef Postgraduate Research Scholarship” has been set up at the School of Electrical Engineering of UNSW. The scholarship is funded by Zedelef and it is valued at $30000 per annum for two years. The recipient, Mr Josiah Firth, will work on the development of a packaging for Zedelef’s liquid crystal based optical transducers.
NewSouth Innovation (NSi), the has assigned to Zedelef the IP protecting its core “optical voltage sensing” technology. This technology, originally developed at the University of New South Wales by Zedelef’s founders, was initially licensed by NSi to Zedelef under the novel “Easy Access IP” scheme. Following the assignment, Zedelef has now full control of the[…]
At the very last board meeting, just before the program was canceled, Zedelef has been awarded a Proof Of Concept grant by Commercialisation Australia. The grant is worth $250,000 and it will allow Zedelef to develop an optical sensing network for monitoring of hazardous gases in coal mines. The product development will be conducted in[…]
The first Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal (FLC) cell has been assembled by Zedelef in the clean room of the Australian Nano Fabrication Facility (ANFF). The picture shows two images taken under a polarising microscope: on the right, the FLC in our cell is very well aligned and it can be used in electro-optical devices; on the[…]
Zedelef Pty Ltd has signed an agreement with the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) to move the production of its transducers to the NSW node of ANFF. Starting in 2014, Zedelef will rent lab space in one of ANFF’s clean rooms located at the University of New South Wales. By the end of January, the[…]
