As well as the more mainstream engineering disciplines, most of Renishaw's product lines also require specialists in a number of other areas.  For instance, physicists are employed across the business on many challenges from the complex error mapping of 3D scanning probes in the CMM products division, to optoelectronic design in encoder and laser calibration products. In the spectroscopy, physics, optics, maths and chemistry expertise are often in demand.

Core knowledge

Depending on your product and application specialism, Physics/Scientific Graduates can develop understanding of:

  • Optics
  • Lens design
  • Diffractive optics, multi-level gratings
  • Partial coherence
  • Computer-generated holograms
  • Polarisation
  • Lasers (for micromachining and metrology)
  • Interferometry
  • Dielectric filtering
  • Photometry, power budgeting
  • Chemistry
  • Material science
  • Raman spectroscopy
  • Solid state physics
  • Semiconductor device physics
  • LEDs, lasers and photodiodes

Promotion in this stream is likely to take you down either a technical route to Senior then Principal Design Engineer, or to a more managerial position such as Technical / Design Manager.
