Biography

Professor Stephen Sweeney holds a BSc in Applied Physics and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from the University of Bath and a PhD in Semiconductor Laser Physics from the University of Surrey. Following his PhD and postdoctoral positions, he joined Marconi Optical Components as a Scientist, becoming Lead Scientist of the Laser and Amplifier Technology group. He returned to Surrey as a Lecturer, promoted to Chair in Physics in 2010. He led the Photonics group based in the Advanced Technology Institute from 2010-2015 and was Head of the Department of Physics from 2015-2018. He was awarded a prestigious EPSRC Leadership Fellowship allowing him to focus on developing near- and mid-infrared laser technologies for applications in high efficiency optical communications, sensing and photonic integration. In 2022, he moved to the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow as Professor of Photonics and Nanotechnology where he leads the Semiconductor Photonic Materials and Devices group.

 

In addition to his academic role, he is the Chief Technology Officer for UK photonics start-up Zinir Ltd, he has sat on the Editorial Boards of IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics and Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics, has guest edited IET Optoelectronics, IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics and IoP Semiconductor Science and Technology. His other roles have included membership of the EPSRC III-V National Centre Steering Committee, the EPSRC and UKRI Colleges and the Institute of Physics Semiconductor Physics committee. He serves as an expert international advisor for the EU and several national funding agencies such as the Department of Energy (USA), National Science Foundation (USA), Singapore Research Agency, Enterprise Ireland, Leibnitz Foundation, FWO Belgium amongst others. He sits on the committees for a number of international conferences and has chaired several conferences in semiconductors and photonics. In 2015 he was President of the Physics and Astronomy section of the British Science Association. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and a Fellow of SPIE.

Stephen is passionate about science and engineering and their role in the health and wealth of society. He enjoys engaging with people of all ages and regularly gives talks at schools, interviews for the national press and is an advocate for UK science and technology globally.

Research interests

Working closely with industry, Stephen's research interests range from developing new semiconductors for use in photonic devices such as lasers and photovoltaics through to the development of new photonic systems for use in communications, lighting, energy, biosciences, health and the emerging field of space-based photonics.

His work has led to a large number of published and edited journal papers, book chapters and patents.
