Lecturer & Research Scientist
Dr. Zhao teaches the Electron Microbeam Techniques course (GEO 390R). This course covers scanning electron microscopy (SEM), environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM), electron microprobe analysis (EMPA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM/STEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), methods of sample preparation, and hands-on-practices with both hardware and software. Also included are energy dispersive spectrum (EDS) of characteristic X-ray, electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD), and electron energy loss spectrometry (EELS). Laboratory work will be assigned each week and operational instructions for each instrument will be available to students.
