Atsuo Kawasuso is a senior research Fellow at the National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology, Japan. Since 1995, he has worked on developing positron beam probes and applying them to materials science problems. In 1998, he succeeded in demonstrating high-energy positron diffraction from a silicon surface using an isotope-based electrostatic positron beam. He is currently working on the development of spin-polarized positron beam techniques for spintronics applications.


Spectroscopy That Doesn’t Scratch the Surface

Researchers have demonstrated a way of measuring the electronic states of a material’s surface while avoiding signal contaminations from deeper layers. Read More »
