Biography

Research

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (epr) research and instrumentation. Development of microwave apparatus, x-ray generators, helium temperature dewar assemblies and high vacuum equipment to enable epr sample characteristics to be measured at various temperatures and at both x-band frequencies (10 GHz) and at Q-band frequencies (35 GHz).
