Dr Bill Brocklesby

Academic Staff

Bill Brocklesby’s research has centered around novel imaging & microscopy techniques in the visible and XUV spectral regions over the last 10-15 years. He is at present working on coherent diffractive imaging of nanoscale systems using XUV radiation generated by high-power ultrashort pulse lasers. This interest in high-power ultrafast lasers led to involvement in the ICAN project, conceived by Gérard Mourou and Toshiki Tajima, which studied large-scale beam combination of ultrafast fibre lasers for wake-field acceleration. Dr Brocklesby was Project Manager of ICAN, and large-scale beam combination remains a topic of interest.

Dr Brocklesby also has extensive research experience in Raman microscopy, near-field techniques such as scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM), atomic force microscopy, & scanning tunneling microscopy. His doctoral work was undertaken at the University of Oxford, followed by a post-doc at AT&T Bell Laboratories in New Jersey, USA.

He is at present employed as an associate professor at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton. He has supervised 25 PhD students (3 current), teaches photonics within the School of Physics & Astronomy, and is Director of Programmes for the ORC’s Masters courses. He has a strong interest in outreach activities, and has lectured to audiences of 6th formers and teachers at the Royal Institution, the Institute of Education, and the Institute of Physics with the University’s laser roadshow, ‘Light Express’.
