Dr Maryam Khaksar

Process Engineer

Expertise: Advanced charaterisation, nano/micro fabrication

The main areas of Maryam’s expertise are in plasma polymerisation, thin film coatings, nanocomposites and micro/nanofabrication. She is also experienced in using advanced characterisation techniques such as nano/micro X-ray computed tomography and synchrotron spectroscopy techniques (X-ray absorption spectroscopy).

Prior to her PhD, Maryam worked at Plasma Physics Research Centre (PPRC), Azad University of Iran, where she obtained work experience on synthesis and functionalization of nanomaterials, surface engineering and modification using different plasma polymerisation and ion implantation techniques.
