Oxford Instruments promotes Dan Ayres to General Manager


With over 10 years experience at Oxford, Ayres was Operations Director at Plasma Technology before being promoted to this newly created role.


Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology, a leader in etch, deposition and growth equipment, has announced the promotion of Dan Ayres to General Manager.


Managing Director Andy Matthews comments, “In order to maintain our business’ current growth, we need strong focus on the efficiency and effectiveness of all areas. Dan will lead the Business, Engineering, Finance and HR functions towards a clear vision that better delivers the needs of our customers and establishes the competencies and resources that support our future growth. Dan’s previous experience together with his work within projects at Oxford Instruments, equips him well to take on this new challenge”.


This new appointment will further facilitate the ongoing expansion of Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology’s Bristol, UK production capacity that has seen a workforce increase of 30% in the past 12 months, and 50% increase in production facilities. It will enable additional focus on delivering the innovative, world class, etch, deposition and growth systems that meet the ever increasing demands of Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology’s customers.


FEI ChemiSTEM technology enables atomic-level spectroscopy


The combination of high detection sensitivity and high spectral rates are enabling better EDX mapping of materials that are highly sensitive to electron beam damage, such as composition analysis in nanometre-scale InGaN quantum wells used in LEDs and other compound semiconductor devices.


With over 10 years experience at Oxford Instruments, Ayres was Operations Director at Plasma Technology before being promoted to this newly created role, and prior to that held roles in the


FEI, a leading instrumentation company providing systems for research and industry, is extending its ChemiSTEM Technology to enable, what it says for the first time, atomic-level energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy across the periodic table.

fields of Supply Chain, Product Management and Project Management within the Oxford Instruments Group. Ayres gained an Engineering degree before joining Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) to work in roles covering Supply Chain and New Product Introduction, and was awarded an MBA from Warwick Business School while working for Oxford Instruments.
