Biography:

Paul Maguire is Professor of Plasmas and Nanofabrication at NIBEC Nanotechnology & Integrated Bio-Engineering Centre and School of Engineering Ulster University. His main research interests lie in the development and integration of microplasma, microfluidic and microfabrication techniques for application in industrial nanomaterials, biocompatible nanomaterials coatings, 3rd generation PV solar cells, clinical and environmental sensors devices. He has many years’ experience in materials synthesis, deposition and etching especially with group IV (e.g. tetragonal amorphous carbon, carbon nanotubes) and groups II-IV materials.   His current focus includes two EPSRC funded projects on realtime bacterial pathogen detection and nanoparticles for 3rd generation solar devices; nanomaterials for electronic devices volume manufacture and DeepOcean Lab-on-Chip, in collaboration with Scripps Institute of Oceanography and NUI-Galway.
