Research Interests

Our group uses positrons and light for investigations in several highly relevant areas.

1. Analytic, nondispersive Raman spectroscopy for measuring dissolved gases in seawater, gaseous emissions associated with earthquake pre-tremors, and breath analyses associated with complex medical conditions

2. Further, we are working to develop intense positron sources

Publications: 114 refereed papers, 3 books, 8 contributed chapters, 2 US patents
