Dr Darryl Jones has interests in photoemission electron microscopy and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. He is the manager of the photoemission electron microscope facility within Flinders Microscopy and Microanalysis (FMMA). Please feel free to contact with me to discuss how our research facilities may assist you in characterising your materials.

Darryl has a research background in molecular physics, spectroscopy, and materials processing. This includes over 10 years' experience undertaking electron scattering and spectroscopy research that had applications in medical (radiation-based therapies) and technology-based fields (plasma processing). He specialised in photon- and electron-impact excitation, ionization, and fragmentation processes. Darryl also has a background in quantum chemical computations that are useful for describing atomic and molecular phenomena. His research has also involved creating novel chemical processing platforms for materials synthesis. This research also included developing the tools for characterising and understanding the structure of the synthesised materials and how they were created.
