Biography and Technical Output


Professor David Whitehouse is a world authority on surface and nanometrology - theoretically and practically. He has a B.Sc. in Physics, a Ph. D. in Surface Tribology, and D.Sc. in Metrology (The first D. Sc awarded by the University of Warwick) he also has an Honorary D.Sc. He has published over 250 papers on surface and nanometrology, has 23 patents and has written six books including the definitive ‘Handbook of Surface Metrology’ and ‘Handbook of Surface and Nanometrology’. Over 50% of all these publications having been written by him alone. In 2016 his publications according to Google Scholar has 6000 citations with an h index of 35 and i 10 index of 77.


He completed a three-year postgraduate apprenticeship at a Wolverhampton firm making high voltage equipment after graduating with an honours degree in Physics from Bristol University in 1958. The next 20 years of his career was spent in industry including 10 years as Chief Research Engineer at Taylor Hobson Ltd, UK; the world famous ultra-precision instrument company in Leicester UK. During this time at Taylor Hobson he studied, in his own time, for a PhD which he obtained at Leicester University after 3 years in 1970. His paper, based on this PhD work was the first of his 12 papers published in the Royal Society.

After the period in industry he spent 23 years as Full Professor at the University of Warwick UK, first as Professor of Mechanical Engineering and later as Professor of Engineering Science. For the last five years he was Chief Scientist. During his time in the Department he was responsible for starting up both the Mechanical Engineering and the Production Engineering Divisions in the Department of Engineering. He has supervised more than 30 Ph.D. students and started the first degree course in the UK on ‘Design and Alternative Technology’ in 1978, derivatives of which are still running today.

In 1979 he started the first ‘Centre for Micro- engineering and Metrology’. And in 1990 he initiated the world’s first Journal of Nanotechnology published by the Institute of Physics and became its first Editor in Chief. This journal ‘Nanotechnology’ has recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary and has an impact factor of 3.82. It is published weekly and now has two million full-article downloads per year. He is also a joint Founder in 2002 of the Chinese Journal of Nanotechnology and Precision Engineering.

Currently, he is Emeritus Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Warwick UK, Consultant Professor at the University of Harbin, P R China, Visiting Professor at Tianjin, P R China and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Precision Technologies University of Huddersfield UK.

He has also been Visiting Professor at the Technical University of Norway, at Trondheim, the University of Bremen, Germany and the Technical University of Vienna in Austria.


He has lectured in 37 countries and has received many honours and prizes including the Joseph Whitworth Prize (Inst. Mech. E.), The James Clayton Prize (Inst. Mech. E.), the Commemorative Medallion for Advanced Technology; Mendeleev Institute of Metrology St Petersburg (then Leningrad), Russia), the Callendar Prize ‘For Outstanding Contribution to Metrology’ from the Institute of Measurement and Control and in 1986 given a five year Research Professor SERC Senior Fellowship.

He has three lifetime achievement honours, one in the UK: a Lifetime Achievement Award for World Class Metrology: ‘Champion of Metrology’ from the National Physical Laboratory, one from the USA: A lifetime Achievement Award for a long and distinguished career from the American Society of Precision Engineers which in the citation described Professor Whitehouse as the ‘Father of digital metrology’ and recently the ‘world class’ General Pierre Nicolau Award from the International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP) based in Paris, conferred in 2012 for ‘Significant and Distinguished Scientific Contribution to the field of Production Engineering’. This is the first time this Award -regarded as the Premier Award in Production Engineering in the world- has been awarded to a Briton.


Fellow of the International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP);Charter Member of the American Society of Precision Engineering; Fellow of the UK Institute of Physics; Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology; Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce.

He has been a consultant to Rolls Royce, Taylor Hobson, 3M(UK) and the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment, Aldermaston in the UK. Kodak, Unilever, General Motors, Caterpillar, and the Bardon Corporation in the USA, Toshiba in Japan and UBM in Germany, and the Ministry of Technology of Singapore. He has also been an ‘Expert Witness’ for the Ministry of Defence UK on two occasions.
