Personal profile


Dr Allegre specializes in advanced laser processes, with a special interest in ultrashort-pulse laser material interactions and process control.

He also has a background in precision motion control, optics design and microscopy. Following the completion of a “diplôme d'Ingénieur” at Polytech’ Orleans in France in 2003, Dr Allegre worked as a Design and Software Engineer for research organisations such as NCRA in India, or industrial companies such as Marinovation in France and Thorlabs in Cambridge, UK. He joined Carl Zeiss SMT Ltd in 2007, where he worked as a Systems Engineer on the design and manufacture of electron microscopes. In 2009, he joined the University of Liverpool to complete a PhD in advanced control of laser beam wavefront and polarisation for micro-manufacturing. After his PhD in 2012, Dr Allegre managed an EU-funded project to promote the use of laser technologies to SMEs in the North-West.
