Thomas Day Goodacre

Tom studied a BSc in Mathematics at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2010. He completed an MSc in Photon Science at the University of Manchester. Tom’s dissertation focused on the effects of implanting Aperiodic Distributed Feedback (ADFB) gratings into THz Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs).

Following the completion of his MSc, in September 2012, Tom joined the LA³NET project working at CERN on the ISOLDE RILIS. Tom has worked on expanding the capabilities of the RILIS, while taking part in in-source laser spectroscopy experiments. He is currently working towards a PhD in Nuclear physics with The University of Manchester using results obtained during the LA³NET Fellowship.
