About the Author

Xichun Luo

He previously worked at Cranfield University as a key research officer and delivered world leading research in ultra precision diamond turning and grinding of freeform optics. From 2007 to 2012 he was a lecturer at Heriot-Watt University. From 2012 to 2013 he was a Reader in ultra precision manufacturing at the University of Huddersfield where he lead an Advanced Machining Research Group within the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology. He and his research group established an international reputation in ultra precision machining, micromachining and nanomanufacturing research, as evidenced by more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed highly ranked journals and international conferences. He was honored at the Scottish Crucible Awards for Research by Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2010. He won the Institution of Mechanical Engineers 2015 Ludwig Mond Prize for his paper on FIB micro and nano fabrication.
