Dr John Gilchrist(Managing Director)
Dr. John R Gilchrist is a specialist in optical spectroscopy having been instrumental in the design, development and commercialisation of a wide range of time-resolved and steady-state fluorimeter systems for applications ranging from life sciences to semiconductor photoluminescence, as well as absorption, reflection, transmission, Raman, colorimetry, and spectro-radiometry for research and routine analysis of materials.
John has held responsible posts in leading opto-electronics companies in both UK and USA since obtaining his PhD at Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 1986 for his research in opto-thermal transient emission radiometry.
Now as a co-founder of Gilden Photonics, John sees the wide ranging opportunities afforded by close collaboration, particularly with long term friends and colleagues in China, to make a real impact in cost effective, high performance optical and spectroscopic systems. He sees the company as a bridge to act as an ethical portal into Asian manufacture while at the same time developing innovative optical spectroscopy systems demanded by the market.
