Contact Dr Renaud Jourdain


Dr Renaud Jourdain has a unique track record for design, fabrication and characterisation of advanced fabrication processes. Today, based on his scientific expertise, Dr Jourdain aims at expending much further his research activities in the field of energy beam processing. Dr Jourdain benefits from access to unique RAP and LAP processing capital equipment. He intends to increase his research portfolio through both scientific and academic activities. His vision builds from the research funded for the past ten years by EPSRC, which was successfully delivered.
