Platform Programme Three -  In-Process Metrology

The aims of this Platform Programme are (1) sensor development; (2) establish system-integrated ultra-precision freeform manufacturing and metrology platforms to explore the manufacturing technologies for the next generation freeform surfaces, and (3) create new single-shot interferometric techniques for R2R manufacture of Printed Electronics, to dynamically assess surfaces in-process. Additionally, Hub researchers have sought to commercialise a novel in-process metrology technology via the establishment of a new spin-out company.
