Matt Clark

Matt Clark is the head of the optics and photonics research group and the director of research excellence for the Faculty of Engineering.

He trained as a Physicist at Imperial College and Manchester University. Following this he worked as a research associate at the University of Nottingham (UoN) to develop novel techniques for generating and controlling laser ultrasound. In 2000 he was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship to investigate acoustical aberrations and adaptive acoustics and in 2005 an EPSRC Challenging Engineering award for the development on smart optical sensors and in 2013 was awarded a second EPSRC Challenging Engineering award for developing nanoscale ultrasonic imaging techniques. He also leads on the Nottingham Nano Fabrication Facility (NNFF) [1] at the nmRC[2] supported by an EPSRC Strategic Equipment.

His research covers a wide range of interdisciplinary subjects in optics, ultrasonics, nano and meta materials and instrumentation. He has over 100 publications in these areas. You can find more information here: Laser ultrasonics.
