Introducing FFEI’s Institute of Physics Fellow
It is unusual to meet a ‘Fellow from industry’, so we are particularly proud to announce that FFEI has one of its very own – Martin Gouch, Chief Scientist at FFEI.
Martin has been involved in applying Physics to produce products since leaving university. Working continuously in UK industry for over 30 years the variety of patent grants given – ranging from ‘Inkjet head support assembly’ and ‘Ink pinning assembly’ through to ‘Method and apparatus for image scanning’ and ‘Image reproduction’ – proves his innovative skills over the years.
We asked Martin how it felt to receive the Fellowship from the Institute of Physics. “In the first instance I was surprised to have been invited to apply for the Fellowship! I was therefore very pleased to actually be receiving it, but I certainly didn’t expect it. In fact I had convinced myself that I hadn’t been successful – months had gone by without notification and I received a letter regarding my subscription asking me to renew my membership (at the standard level not Fellowship).”
