- Ghassan Muhammad Saffarini, Professor of experimental physics, An-Najah National University
- Research Area:
- Applied research conducted to investigate the atomic and electronic structure of technologically important materials, and in particular semi-conducting chalcogenide glasses. Thermal properties are also studied. Emphasis is aimed at identifying the structure-property relationships in order to assess the suitability of the use of these materials in devices. Techniques such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) are employed in the course of these investigations. Experience in EXAFS is gained on many international facilities such as the British synchrotron facility at Daresbury, the French synchrotron one (L.U.R.E.), Orsay and the Italian facility (ELETRA) at Trieste. Surface science experience in XPS is gained using a Kratos ES300 and a Perkin-Elmer CI electron spectrometers, whereas DSC experience is gained on both conventional and temperature-modulated instruments.
I am also conducting research on radon concentration measurements in air which will be followed by measurements in water and soil.
