Dr John Molloy is a Senior Research Scientist in the Electromagnetic Technology group at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), Manager of the NPL East of England Hub based at University of Cambridge and a Visiting Research Scientist at the Hyper Terahertz Facility, University of Surrey.
John is working to increase NPL's visibility through-out the University of Cambridge and the wider East of England region, by expanding upon existing collaborations and developing new relationships through the delivery of new, world-leading measurement science, and enabling the adoption of metrology innovation and measurement best practice on a regional scale. He joined the NPL in 2011, where his research focuses on ultrafast optoelectronics for next generation of waveform metrology instrumentation, developing novel THz sources and growing industrial applications of THz technology.
Dr Molloy received his BSc degree in Physics and Astronomy from the National University of Ireland, Galway in 2006. His MSc degree, Photonics and Optoelectronic Devices, was jointly from the University of St. Andrews and Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. In 2011 he completed his EngD, entitled Solid Solution GaSe1-xSx Single Crystals For THz Generation, at Heriot-Watt University in 2017. Previously in industry, he worked as a laser engineer manufacturing diode-pumped solid-state lasers, and as an electronic engineer developing high speed, high capacity storage solutions for digital media.
