Personal profile


Graeme is a Senior Research Fellow in the Ion Beam Centre (IBC) within the School of Computing and Engineering. He received his PhD in physics from the University of Salford in 2012, investigating the effect of ion irradiation on silicon and iron.

Graeme is responsible for the running of the new £3.5M EPSRC funded MIAMI-2 system at the University of Huddersfield. This system combines two ion acclerators, a medium energy (up to 1 MeV for triply charged species) and a low energy (up to 20 keV for H/He), with a Hitachi H9500 transmission electron microscope, in order to investigate the effects of ion irradiation in real time at the nanoscale.

Research Expertise and Interests

  • Radiation damage of materials, in particular relating to the current and next generation of nuclear reactors.
  • Modification of solids using ion irradiation.
  • Electron microscopy
  • The formation of ordered arrays of nano-sized gas bubbles (bubble lattices) within metals during irradiation.
