Professor Stewart Williams

Stewart Williams has nearly thirty years’ experience in research of laser material processing for manufacturing applications.  This has been both in industry and more recently in academia. Topics have covered welding, cutting, drilling, micromachining and surface treatments. The main focus for his current research is elimination of black art in laser processes. This is being tackled by understanding scientific fundamentals in processes and then working how to apply them. The objective is to increase the industrial use of laser based production processes.  This has approach has already been proven in laser keyhole welding and is being extended further.
