Iain McCrindle joined Scintilla as a Trainee Patent Attorney in 2016. Prior to entering the profession, Iain was employed as a Nanofabrication Engineer with Kelvin Nanotechnology where he worked on the processing and development of micro and nanofabricated devices using the tools and processes available in the University of Glasgow’s James Watt Nanofabrication Centre. He primarily worked on the fabrication of semiconductor lasers and ion traps.
Iain has a PhD from the University of Glasgow where he was a member of the Microsystem Technology Group. The focus of his research was on the development of structured photonic materials with engineered optical properties at visible, infrared and terahertz wavelengths to aid in the development of a multispectral imaging system. His work has been published in several scientific journals and he is co-inventor on a patent.
