Professor Martin D. Dawson FInstP FOSA FIEEE FRSE is a physicist known for his work on lasers and compound semiconductors. He is Director of Research in the University of Strathclyde’s Institute of Photonics, which he helped establish 20 years ago, and he was also appointed inaugural Head of the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics (F-CAP) in October 2012. Martin has over 30 years’ experience of applied research gained in academia and industry in the UK and USA and he has been involved in the formation and technical development of a number of spin-out businesses, most recently including mLED Ltd. He holds an EPSRC Programme Grant on visible light communications and gave a Rank Prize Lecture in 2014 on ‘Applied Research in Photonics’. He was awarded the 2016 Gabor Medal and Prize by the Institute of Physics and the 2016 Aron Kessel Award by the IEEE Photonics Society.
