Dr Donnan is a co-investigator of the In-line Quality-control of UV offset lithographically Printed Electronic-ink by THz technology (IQ-PET) project, which explores the changes in THz spectra at each stage of the UV offset printing process for electrically conductive and dielectric inks.
Dr Donnan received his Ph.D. (Solid State Physics) in 2000 from the University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia. Under an EPSRC contract in 2001, he commenced as a post doctoral research assistant in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Queen Mary, University of London , developing diffracted Gaussian beam optics for design-verification of quasi-optical systems. In March 2003 he was appointed to a Lectureship in the Department. His research, broadly, is in development of mm/submm-wave and THz measurement systems to serve basic and applied research in medical and structural imaging and in spectrometric studies of materials, metamaterials and biomaterials. A key aspect of this work is development of microstructured componentry requiring accurate measurements of plane-wave transmission/refelection spectra. These are used in determiantion of optical/magnetooptical constants and verifiaction of component design-performance.
