|Tim Batten: Dr Tim Batten is a Senior Applications Scientist at Renishaw plc. He has been working at Renishaw’s UK office for five years, in which time he has performed Raman spectroscopy on every type of sample imaginable. Previously he studied a PhD at the University of Bristol, using Raman spectroscopy to assess temperature and stress/strain in GaN based transistors. His current research interests focus on 2D materials (graphene, MoS2, BN) and using Raman as an integrated tool in the production of compound semiconductor devices. He plays a key role in developing instrumentation and applications based on Renishaw’s combined Raman AFM and TERS systems.|
