Specialization in Experimental Surface Physics
Studies of the geometric, electronic, and vibrational structure of solid surfaces / interfaces, adsorbed species, and thin films. Currently, semiconductor, metal, and organic film surfaces / interfaces as well as diamond-like carbon thin films are under
study using Scanning Tunneling Microscopy / Spectroscopy, Atomic Force Microscopy, High Resolution Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy, Low Energy Electron Diffraction, Auger Electron Spectroscopy, Photoelectron Spectroscopy, and other surface spectroscopic
Author of over fifty publications in surface and interface science; of review articles on Scanning Probe Microscopies, Metal-Polymer Interface Analysis, and the Physics of Ultrathin Alkali-Metal Interfaces; and, of a book on Scanning Probe Microscopies.
