Current Research

  • My ion beam research activities are centred around the use of focused high-energy beams of charged particles as a means of imaging the structure and crystallinity of materials and to modify their properties. This work includes areas such as porous silicon formation, electrochemistry, ion optics, and ion channelling, accelerator physics. Much of the current work is on the use of silicon micromachining to fabricate micro- and nanoscale components for silicon photonics.

  • My Synchrotron research activities include X-ray lithography, X-ray optics, accelerator physics, soft X-ray scattering.
