Jon Parkins

£18,000 – Leete Premium Award by the Worshipful Company of Engineers

EPSRC Photography Competition 2016 CDT PhD student Jon Parkins has been awarded first prize in the category of ‘Innovation’ in the 2016 EPSRC Photography Competition. The contest was open to EPSRC-funded researchers all across the country, with winners announced in March 2016.  Jon's winning entry, ‘Where there is light, there is shadow’, featured fellow PhD student Karen Yu using the CIM-UP funded ultra-precise laser processing system to process glass with an ultrafast laser. The laser process is very bright due to plasma formation in the glass, which inspired the idea of the laser interaction as the main light source in the image.
