Biography

Dr Richard Webster is a research associate in the Electron Microscope Unit at UNSW. His research is focused on the atomic level study of the interfaces formed between two solids and the development of new techniques to characterise these interfaces. He did his PhD in the Physics Department at the University of Bristol, UK after which he moved to Australia to take a job at the Mark Wainwright analytical Centre.

My Research Activities

My interests lie in the application of electron microscopy methods to determine composition, structure and defect nature of semiconductors, mainly III-nitrides. My present research includes the application of electron microscopy to InxGa1-xN nanorods and films for use in LED and transistor devices. Recent research has included:

  • the compositional profiling, using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, of InxGa1-xN nanorods to understand the growth mechanisms of these structures,
  • the application of electron microscopy techniques to determine the structure of materials mainly semiconductors and
  • the use of novel substrates, such as polycrystalline diamond, for improved thermal characteristics of semiconductor devices
