Materials Science on the Atomic Scale with the 3-D Atom Probe

By George D. W. Smith

University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom

Published on


I am a materials scientist, with special interest in the study of the microstructure, composition and properties of engineering materials at the atomic level. I have led the development of new experimental techniques for the observation of solid materials in three dimensions on the atomic scale. I am author or co-author of 2 books and over 280 scientific papers, and have given presentations about my work at more than 100 scientific conferences and 150 laboratories around the world. From 2000 - 2005 I was Head of the Oxford University Department of Materials, which is the top UK university department in this field, with over 160 active researchers, and 100 undergraduate students.
