RESEARCH INTERESTS:

My research interests include the growth and characterization of novel solid state materials.

OUTREACH ACTIVITIES:

I am currently traveling the greater Camden, NJ area giving demonstrations  on lasers and laser technology. If you are interested in having me come to your classroom and present my demo please feel free to contact me with your request.

In my current presentation, I discuss the unique aspects of laser light and how it is difference from light produced by conventional light sources e.g. incandescent light bulbs. Additionally, I discuss how DVD players work and how Blu-Ray technology got its name. I also present several laser applications including: removal of a tattoo from a pig's foot, the formation of holograms, the replacement of metal lancets by lasers in diabetes testing, and the demonstration of pulsed laser deposition (PLD); which is an important laser-based tool utilize by researchers to produce thin films.
