Areas of specialty

Previous Research

Dynamical Low-energy Electron Diffraction studies to
determine the structure of sub and near monolayer metal
films on semiconductor surfaces, multilayer relaxation of
clean metal surfaces, and structure of epitaxial metal
films on metal surfaces.

Specific studies of interest are those for the rare-earth
surfaces of Gd{11-20}, Tb{1-120}, Gd(0001), and Tb(0001),
for which the surface relaxations have been determined.

Ultraviolet Photoemission studies to determine the band
structure of clean metal surfaces and epitaxial metal films
on metal surfaces.

Neutron and X-ray reflectivity studies to determine
the interfacial properties of polymer thin-films.

Specific skills of interest are the design, construction,
machining, repair, maintenance, and programming of electronics,
UHV equipment, and software for surface science applications
and analysis of spectra.

General areas of interest include structural studies for the clean surfaces
(and overlayers there upon) of semiconductors, metals, polymers,
magnetic thin-films, reacted systems, and alloys.
