Lars Allers

Managing Director

Lars Allers studied at Cambridge University (Natural Sciences/Physics) and King’s College London where he completed an industrially-sponsored PhD in spectroscopic studies of CVD diamond. 

Following a brief Post-doctorate involved in the potential application of diamond as a sensor in DNA sequencing, he joined Oxford Applied Research where he was appointed a company Director in 2001. In 2003 he started Mantis Deposition with the goal of manufacturing UHV deposition systems, including unique nanoparticle coating technology.

He left Mantis Deposition in 2015 to start Korvus Technology.
