Dr Darryl Jones has interests in electron and photon collisions with atoms, molecules, and condensed matter. He uses experimental methods to study the dynamics of the collision process, with this work also providing information about the structure and properties of the systems investigated.
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. Most recently, Darryl has managed a Photoemission Electron Microscopy (PEEM) facility within Flinders Microscopy and Microanalysis (2020-2022).
