Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has over 30 years of experience in obtaining compositional and diffraction information from thin specimens in the electron microscope. Materials he has analyzed have included steels, aluminum alloys, oxide ceramics, and heterogeneous catalysts. Some significant effort has been made to push this technique to its limits--i.e., measurement of smaller amounts of elements from smaller regions of specimens.

analytical electron microscopy


electron diffraction

Most of Expert's experience in the analysis of materials has been using X-ray emission spectrometry to determine quantitatively the amounts of elements in small regions of the specimen, in both thin specimens (analytical transmission electron microscopy) and bulk specimens (electron probe X-ray microanalysis).

X-ray emission


X-ray spectroscopy


electron probe microanalysis

Expert has 30 years of experience teaching electron optics at college level and has written chapters on this subject for a 2003 textbook on scanning electron microscopy. Knowledge of electron optics is necessary to derive the highest performance from electron microscopes.
