When the eminent Professor Mark J Jackson asked me to edit Volume 2 of Micro and Nanomanufacturing with him I was naturally delighted because working with Mark is always fun and we have been very prolific over the last 10 years. The first volume published by Springer and edited by Mark has been very successful with over 14404 downloads.
Micro and Nanomanufacturing provides a comprehensive treatment of established micro & nano fabrication techniques and addresses the needs of practicing manufacturing engineers by applying established and research laboratory manufacturing techniques to a wide variety of materials.
Engineers seeking more knowledge of how nano and micro devices are designed and fabricated will learn:
- Manufacturing and fabrication at the micro and nanoscales
- Using bulk and surface micromachining techniques, LiGA and deep x-ray lithography to manufacture semiconductors
- Producing master molds with micromachining
- The deposition of thin films, pulsed water drop machining, and nanomachining
Since the publication of the first volume significant progress in materials and manufacturing technologies has been made. Hence, Micro and Nanomanufacturing Volume 2 contains eighteen completely new chapters from leading international experts. The book is now complete and being prepared by Springer for publication and coming out soon. I am so excited about receiving my copy in the post from Springer.
Physics students in their second year at Lincoln gave fantastic feedback regarding the Industrial and Econophysics module. This module is intended to showcase some of the industrial applications of physics, with a focus on the finance sector towards the end of the module.
A series of guest lectures were given by local industrialists from a range of industries in which physics is a primary tool. Our local industrial partners include Micrometric Ltd, Teledyne e2v (UK) Ltd and the Radiotherapy Physics department at Lincoln County Hospital. In addition to the guest lectures, students were given the opportunity to visit the relevant industrial sites around the city of Lincoln.
Students visit Micrometric Ltd – a local SME with expertise in laser manufacturing.
Students were also given a case study assignment about Diamond Light Source synchrotron facility which they had visited the previous year. The students prepared a professional-quality poster on the subject matter from one of the…

Abdullah has been a credit to his group from Shah Abdul Latif University. Smart, hard working and thinking about the progress of the group over the last 3 years. The journey is almost complete with a PhD in Knowledge Sharing Processes for Identity Theft Prevention within Online Retail Organisations. I wish him great success in the future. It has been a privilege and pleasure working with him.
The School of Mathematics and Physics is the top school at the University of Lincoln in the Module Evaluation Questionnaires completed by students. Well done to all staff and students for this fantastic achievement.
After challenging times I am proud of Abdel Majid for passing his PhD viva with very minor corrections. The examiners commended Abdel for doing excellent work in very short time.
With corrections completed it’s almost time for him to depart back to his home to continue his career.
We all wish him great success in the future.
Here are fantastic revision tips from Simon and Martin from our School Mathematics and Physics.

The Lincoln School of Engineering was the first wholly new engineering School to be opened in the UK for decades, with investment from HEFCE, the European Regional Development Fund and Lincolnshire County Council. Applications are sought for a Research Fellow to be part of the innovative team developing cutting edge solutions for mixed signal design applications. The current role involves development of a digital signal processing interface on an FPGA platform for a novel 5G FMCW radar system. Furthermore the role requires developing, maintaining, and documenting an extensive HDL code base coupled with a custom FPGA based processing system. This will involve working closely with the design team of an industrial partner. The candidate is required to have a PhD in Computer Science, Electronics or Electrical Engineering (or equivalent) with experience of digital signal processing techniques and excellent knowledge of Hardware Description Languages.
