"Markys Cain – Director and owner of Electrosciences"


Spent 17 years at the UK’s National Measurement Institute, NPL, leading their Functional Materials Team. Launched Electrosciences Ltd in 2008 to provide services in characterisation of advanced functional materials. New products are being developed to characterise piezoelectric bulk and thin film materials. Developing novel instrumentation, that reveals functional properties, for in situ structural characterisation using synchrotron X-Ray tools, shown here at XMaS beamline, ESRF, France.
