EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Winner 2013: Krste Pangovski
Krste is a researcher at the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), University of Cambridge and supervised by Prof Bill O’Neill. Krste was in the first cohort of students when the CDT started in 2009 and is now close to completing his thesis.
At the 2nd Annual EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Conference, Krste gave an oral presentation entitled ‘Digital holographic analysis of laser induced micro plasma in micro machining applications: temporal and spatial comparisons to thermo nuclear explosions’.
We are happy to announce that Krste’s presentation won the EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Best Presentation award – well done to Krste!
Krste's future plans involve working at the IfM on the new EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Laser Based Production Processes, a new £12m UK National Centre led by Heriot Watt University involving 31 industrial partners to develop new ways of using lasers in UK manufacturing, enabling UK industry to take advantage of the
latest innovations and developments in this rapidly growing field. Laser-based manufacturing is a global multi-billion dollar industry with significant business opportunities. The past 25 years have seen industrial lasers replace many
‘conventional’ tools in many diverse areas of modern manufacture, enabling increased productivity, functionality and quality.
