Duncan Weathers, Ph.D

Associate Professor
(940) 565-2079
Physics 003
Ph.D (California Institute of Technology, 1989)
Research interest: Applied Physics. Ion-solid interactions, with an emphasis on sputtering, accelerator-based materials characterization techniques, ion optics, resonance ionization spectroscopy, and instrumentation.

Dr. Duncan Weathers investigates experimentally the widely-applied process of sputtering, which might be described as "atomic sand blasting" in which atoms are removed from a surface by the impact of energetic atoms or ions. He uses the technique of Resonance Ionization Spectroscopy for his sputtering analysis.
