From 2017, the Nanoscience Laboratory is a part of the new ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science.  Professor Paul Mulvaney is the Centre Director.

The new Centre brings together researchers from chemistry, physics, maths, and materials science to create new materials for advanced optical and energy applications, including next generation solar cells, LEDs, sensors and responsive optical materials.

The Centre has nodes at University of Melbourne, RMIT University, Monash University, UNSW and the University of Sydney. Partners include the Reserve Bank of Australia, CSIRO and Defence Science Technology Group (DSTG).

The Centre has funding for up to 7 years, with ARC funding of $31.8m and a further $8m from partner organisations.
