Mr Roger Ackroyd
Senior Process Engineer - Nanofabrication
Roger is a Senior Process Engineer - Nanofabrication at ANFF-NSW University of Sydney. He spent the last 4 years working as a nanofabrication process engineer for Microsoft Quantum. In this role, and prior to this at UNSW, he worked on several devices and materials systems, including superconductors, semiconductors, qubits, microwave resonators, Josephson junctions, and SQUIDs. His focus is on process development, process improvement, and scale-up.

Dr Josiah Firth
Process Engineer
Josiah is a process engineer with a special interest in microfabrication of biomedical devices utilising deep plasma etch processes (DRIE), plasma deposition (sputtering, PECVD) and metallization techniques including PVD and electroplating. He started his time at UNSW with an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering (photonics) followed by a PhD fabricating a prototype device to investigate the use of liquid crystal-based sensor technology for use as a brain-machine-interface. He has worked in various capacities at ANFF-NSW since 2015 transitioning to the role of process engineer in 2017. His role includes a wide array of tool and process training, especially around photolithography, metal and oxide deposition and ITO. Other areas of interest include ellipsometry and more recently ion-implantation. Still actively involved in biomedical device fabrication research, he spreads his time between training lab-users, running client processes and assisting the technical team.

Dr Mark Gross
Senior Technical Officer
Mark Gross is a Senior Technical Officer. He has worked for more than 35 years in the areas of plasma physics, thin film processing and semiconductor process engineering. He currently provides a range of skills including equipment maintenance and operation, optical characterization, plasma processing and tool design and modification. Mark received a PhD in experimental physics from the University of Sydney in 1985. He initially worked as a research scientist in plasma processing at the Microelectronics Research Centre in Electrical Engineering at UNSW, which later became the Semiconductor Nanofabrication Facility, the precursor to ANFF. He was also an experimental scientist at the CSIRO Division of Materials Science where he worked on optical thin film coating technologies. He joined ANFF in 2015.
