Gary’s research interests are focused on application of the low energy electron microscope (LEEM) to problems in surface and materials science. Specific areas of investigation include thin-film growth, surface and bulk transport processes, surface chemical reactions, surface phase transitions, self-assembly phenomena, and surface alloy formation.  He is also exploring the application of the LEEM to the characterization of microelectronic device structures.
