Microbeam and I3D
A significant portion of Dr. Singletary’ research is the application of microbeam techniques to the analysis of natural and synthetic materials.
A significant portion of Dr. Singletary’ research is the application of microbeam techniques to the analysis of natural and synthetic materials. Microbeam techniques have the ability to provide high resolution, high magnification images and qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis of materials. These analyses result in the production of high magnification (up to x300,000) and high resolution images (3 nanometers). Images and data collected via microbeam techniques can be used to develop new materials for computers, analyze ancient pots, develop new forensic techniques and examine extraterrestrial samples. Jennifer Jones will participate in discovery-based research which in turn leads to hypothesis-driven research. This sense of discovery and ownership lies at the heart of success in the STEM fields. She will work to integrate data and images acquired via microbeam techniques with the i3D visualization technology.
