International Center for Multiscale Characterization

People

 

The International Center for Multiscale Characterization (ICMC) has two co-directors, one from each partner institution. These co-directors are the primary contacts for initially establishing research activities with ICMC. Other key scientists who support the ICMC are also listed below.

 

 

Brian Gorman

ICMC Director; Colorado School of Mines Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department

bgorman@mines.edu | 303-384-2239

 

Brian Gorman is Associate Professor in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. His research interests include multiscale characterization of semiconductor and ceramic devices and materials, with an emphasis on Raman, FIB, Analytical SEM and TEM, and Atom Probe Tomography. He heads a program to integrate an Atom Probe Tomography system with in-situ ultrafast electron diffraction. The goal is to be able to integrate atomic spatial and chemical resolution measurements with sub-nanosecond temporal resolution for monitoring diffusion, phase transformations, and crystallization processes.

 

Mowafak Al-Jassim

ICMC Co-Director; NREL, Analytical Microscopy and Imaging Science

Mowafak.AlJassim@nrel.gov | 303-384-6602

 

Mowafak Al-Jassim is a Principal Scientist and Group Manager at the National Center for Photovoltaics of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. His research interests include multiscale characterization of structural, chemical, interfacial, optical, and electrical properties of bulk and thin-film semiconductors by (scanning) transmission electron microscopy, cathodoluminescence, electron-beam induced current, atomic force microscopy, and other techniques. His work has involved developing Si, III-V, and thin-film solar cells. His research group has contributed greatly to world-record efficiencies in various photovoltaic technologies. CV
