2020 Joseph Black Award Winner
Dr Anna Regoutz, University College London
Awarded for outstanding contributions to the development and application of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in the area of electronic materials and devices.
Understanding materials is an essential step in the discovery and development of new technologies. It is crucial to gain an in-depth knowledge of the structure and chemistry of a material in order to understand how and why it behaves in certain ways.
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is an important analytical technique that can be used to study solids, liquids and gases and their chemistry and electronic structure. Discoveries made using this technique have enabled Dr Regoutz and her team to uncover new material properties and have informed material choices for many applications. The group continue to work on developing and applying spectroscopic techniques to further their understanding of electronic materials and devices, which are crucial for many aspects of daily life.
