Dr. Donnan received his Ph.D. (Solid State Physics) in 2000 from the University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia. Under an EPSRC contract in 2001, he commenced as a post doctoral research assistant in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Queen Mary, University of London , developing diffracted Gaussian beam optics for design-verification of quasi-optical systems. In March 2003 he was appointed to a Lectureship in the Department. His research, broadly, is in development of mm/submm-wave and THz measurement systems to serve basic and applied research in medical and structural imaging and in spectrometric studies of materials, metamaterials and biomaterials. A key aspect of this work is development of microstructured componentry requiring accurate measurements of plane-wave transmission/refelection spectra. These are used in determiantion of optical/magnetooptical constants and verifiaction of component design-performance.
