    Research Interest 1

    I am no longer research active. I have always been fascinated by electron microscopy, and most of my professional career involved the application of EM to problems in materials science. I have worked on (inter alia) - The determination of stacking fault energies in metals - The structure of carbon fibres - The behaviour of inert gases in metals - The structure of interfaces, mainly in metals and semiconductors - The microstructure of strained layer III-V compound semiconductors - The growth of GaAs by chemical beam epitaxy - The characterisation of quantum dots. I was also heavily involved in the development of the best analytical microscopes in the world via the UK SuperSTEM project, hosted by Daresbury Laboratory. I am also very interested in educational issues, particularly the education of materials scientists and engineers, and devote a significant fraction of my time to the UK Centre for Materials Education.
