Sean Lethbridge

Research Associate, Faculty of Science



After completing an undergraduate MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Swansea University, Sean followed his interest in semiconductors and nanotechnology to further study a PhD in the area of Atomic Cluster and Nanoparticle Production, S/TEM Imaging, and Characterisation, also at Swansea University. Currently writing up his thesis, Sean obtained a postdoc position with Dr Neil Kemp and his research group focusing on Nanoparticle and Thin-film production for applications in Memristor and Electronic devices. He is still very much keen on also continuing his PhD work on Atomic Clusters for nano-structure based Applications.

Expertise Summary

My expertise surrounds vacuum systems and the area of Nanoparticle/Thin-film production through physical methods under high and ultra-high vacuum conditions, in addition to the S/TEM imaging and characterisation of nanostructures. I have a keen interest in investigating and linking such structures with real-world applications, particularly in the area of nano-electronics.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you wish to know more about my research.
