Lewis Mills

I graduated from the University of York with a masters degree in Physics before moving to Warwick in 2017. After completing the Diamond Science and Technology MSc course I then began my PhD study under the supervision of Prof. Mark Newton, based within the Diamond Research Group at Warwick. I am sponsored by EPSRC and the GIA, and was fortunate to have the opportunity to undertake a mini research project at the GIA labs in New York during the MSc component of the CDT.

My PhD is focused on the optical characterisation of point defects in CVD synthetic diamond using photo- and cathodoluminescence.

PhD Title: Spectroscopic and Imaging Studies of Defect Distributions in Natural and Synthetic Diamond

PhD Supervisor: Prof. Mark Newton

Institution: University of Warwick


I have been involved in demonstrating for the Diamond Science and Technology MSc labs, having previously demonstrated the X-ray diffraction experiment during Module 2, and assisted with the Probing and Control of Quantum Systems experiment in Module 8.
