"ADVENTURES in LASER VIBROMETRY:
TAKING the ROUGH with the SMOOTH"
by Prof. Steve J. Rothberg, Loughborough University, UK
Steve Rothberg is Professor of Vibration Engineering and a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. With a first degree and a PhD from Southampton University, he joined the academic staff at Loughborough in 1990 as an industrially funded lecturer.
His research in noise and vibration measurement and analysis, particularly in the development of laser technology for vibration and motion measurements, has attracted individual awards from the National Physical Laboratory and the Society of Experimental Mechanics, and contributed to Loughborough’s Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Optical Engineering (2000) and High Value Manufacturing (2014). Much of this work has been conducted in collaboration with companies in the instrumentation, sporting goods and automotive sectors. His longstanding commitment to innovation in teaching includes founding the university’s Centre for Engineering and Design Education in 1997.
In 2007, after six successful years as Head of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Steve became Dean of the Faculty of Engineering.
Since 2015, he has been Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research).
