“If I see a great opportunity – an advancement in science that can change the way we live – I grab it with both hands and give it everything I’ve got.”

- Dr Angela Dudley

Angela is a CSIR scientist who makes the seemingly impossible, possible, with ground-breaking advancements in the field of digital holography. Unlike conventional holography, which involves creating a hologram by illuminating an object with a laser beam, digital holography means that researchers do not need the laser beam to create a hologram. If the hologram can be mathematically calculated, it can be implemented digitally on a liquid crystal display. Progress in digital holography will lead to advancements in secure and efficient quantum communication. “Being able to transfer information securely is essential for military applications and even everyday internet banking,” Angela says.

Bright young scientists behind ideas that work.
