Spectroscopic studies of Silicon Carbide- characterizing the surface
of single crystal SiC by means of X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, LEED,
Photoemission extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure and various other
Much of the research is done in the newly built Materials Science Research Lab
located in Phillips 174. The lab consists of an STM and an XPS
system constructed with support from the National Science Foundation
Photoelectron Emission Microscopy (PEEM) With the help of student
collaborations a PEEM for analysis of surfaces at UWEC using Ultraviolet
light has been built.
Environmental Spectroscopy- using X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy
and X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy to characterize environmental samples.
