CAPE - Centre for Advanced Photonics and Electronics
CAPE Mission: To invent and develop, through multidisciplinary research, materials, processes, components and systems; define the future strategy and market implementation; and set the industry agendas for the convergence of photonic and electronic technology platforms.
CAPE is a partnership between the University and a small group of international photonics and electronics companies whose market orientation places them in a non-competitive supply-chain or value-chain relationship with respect to each other. It relies on the Partner companies being able to accommodate each other's business interests to allow this collaboration.
