Gary Critchlow is Professor of Surface and Interface Science working within the Materials Department at Loughborough University. He has over 25 years' experience developing surface processes for a wide range of industrial sectors including space, aerospace and defence. Gary’s particular research interests include: the development of advanced coatings for adhesion and abhesion promotion; wear and corrosion protection, and; optoelectronic properties.
He has worked with a number of research partners including ESA, the most recent of which, Development of Conducting Oxides (2013-2016) is currently in its final stages. This project looked specifically at the development of conducting corrosion resistant oxides for satellite applications.
He is also a member of numerous boards and committees, including the Society for Adhesion and Adhesives and an Environmental committee as part of a joint NASA/ESA project.
Professor Wilcox and his research group have research interests in surface engineering, corrosion and degradation both in electronics and materials in general. In one of the most recent research projects Dr Mark Ashworth and Professor Wilcox have been looking at the growth of tin and zinc whiskers. Both these metals are utilised widely in electronic assemblies, with tin being a key metal in printed circuit board architectures as well as a coating on electronic connectors. There are numerous documented cases where tin whiskers have been cited as the cause of failures in high value electronics circuitry, such as that used in satellites.
In the Department of Materials at Loughborough University the group have been examining the mechanisms behind whisker growth from electroplated coatings and utilising the results to formulate mitigation strategies for high value electronics. These have included the formulation of specifically structured polymeric conformal barrier coatings. The group are also researching many other facets of tin and zinc whisker induced failures and have well-founded facilities to both produce whisker growth and study mitigation strategies utilising advanced surface analytical facilities.
NASA has undertaken a significant amount of research into tin whisker mitigation and Professor Wilcox and the department have experience of working on European Space Agency projects.
