Personal profile

Personal Statement

Robert Martin is Professor of Nanoscience at Strathclyde’s Physics Department and Vice-Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Science. He has worked extensively in semiconductor physics and in the application of optical and electron-beam spectroscopies and imaging, having co-authored over 250 refereed publications and three patents. His current interests focus on GaN, AlInN, AlGaN and CuInSe2 materials. Prior to coming to Strathclyde in 1993, he worked on InGaAsP-based electroabsorption modulators and on magnetotransport in Sb-based semiconductors at Oxford University. In 2008, he spent 6 months at the Centre de Recherche sur l'Hétéro-Epitaxie et ses Applications (CRHEA) CNRS laboratory in Valbonne, France working on AlInN materials and GaN-based microcavities.
