Industrial academic collaborative projects with Professor Hogg.

29 January 2019

Our article looking at the benefits of collaboration is published in Compound Semiconductor Magazine.

Entitled “A new way of working” , the article covers a novel, academic / industrial collaboration where a MOCVD reactor, owned by the University of Glasgow, is sited, managed and operated at CST Global’s production facility in Blantyre, Glasgow. This unique approach has allowed CST Global to undertake joint research projects under the guidance of Richard Hogg, Professor of Photonics at the University of Glasgow, without downtime on its commercial MOCVD production. CST Global also gains additional MOCVD capacity, as part of the collaboration, and access to a pool of exceptional research students, with industrial experience, for recruitment.
