Summary on Grant Application Form
My research concentrates on developing technology to offer compact, reliable, robust laser products to be employed by

industrial end-users on their own sites to characterise complex 3D objects, helping to bridge the gap between industry and

academic research. There are two main areas of research that are of interest, surface analysis and time-resolved

tomographic mapping of the internal structures. Lasers can offer an industrial solution to both of these problems. In

partnership with the High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult and Johnson Matthey plc I will conduct research at the CLF

and undertake knowledge transfer placements with them to define what issues they face and design specific laser-based

solutions around the problems that I find with a view to translation of the technology into industrial environments.
