Speaker: Christian Dwyer, Arizona State University
Title: Utilizing Inelastically Scattered Electrons in the Transmission Electron Microscope
Location: 67-3111 Chemla Room


Christian Dwyer is an electron microscopist with backgrounds in scattering and condensed-matter physics. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at Arizona State University. He obtained his PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2004, and has worked in academic/research institutes in England, Australia, Germany and the United States. In his research, Prof Dwyer uses electron microscopes to understand how materials work at the nanometer and atomic lengths scales. He studies materials such as emerging 2D electronic materials, as well as more traditional materials like alloys and nanoparticles which are important for manufacturing and energy generation. A large part of Dwyer's research also focuses on developing new ways of using electron microscopes to reveal previously-inaccessible information about materials.
