Electronic engineer, specialities: optics, microscopy, femtoseconds lasers, ps ultrasonics. I completed my PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2006 at the UoN. My early work focused on optical metrology and signal processing techniques to enable precise measurements to be made below the optical diffraction limit. I have been developing several picosecond ultrasonic systems at UoN, and have successfully developed a parallel detection scheme that has increased the data acquisition rate by over an order of magnitude compared with the traditional detector approach. Current research themes are developing instrumentation to provide true orientation imaging of material microstructure in primarily aerospace materials, and developing high frequency ultrasonic transducers for biological applications.

Dr Sergiy Korposh joined the University of Nottingham (UoN) as a Lecturer in Electronics, Nanoscale Bioelectronics and Biophotonics in 2013, where his current research focuses on the development of fibre optic instrumentation for biomedical application and covers the complete developmental spectrum from discovery at the interface with physics and chemistry through to application e.g. in healthcare and environmental monitoring.

Since 2002 his research work has been devoted to the creation and fabrication of chemical sensors based on a range of sensing platforms modified with advanced functional nano-materials for applications in fields ranging from explosive detection and environmental monitoring to food and beverage quality assessment. He spent 8 years in Japan, as a researcher and latterly as a lecturer, where he worked mainly on the development of various facile methods for the preparation of advanced functional nano–materials with properties and parameters that can be tailored to satisfy needs of specific applications.

He has published over 60 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, book contributions, holds 11 patents (several of which have been licensed to the UK and Japan based companies) and has given invited presentations in the field of fibre-optic chemical sensors. He has successfully supervised and co-supervised undergraduate, graduate and PhD students at the University of Kitakyushu, Cranfield University, and UoN.
