James Mudd


I have now completed my PhD in the Surface, Interface and Thin Film Group and will be graduating in January 2015. You can download my completed thesis "Photoelectron Spectroscopy Investigation of CdO" here.

Following my PhD I have been working at the I05 (ARPES) beamline at Diamond light source.

Supervisor: Prof. Chris McConville

My PhD is in characterising oxide materials using photoemission spectroscopy including ARPES, HAXPES, XPS and UPS.

At Warwick I work in the photoemission lab and have also visited the ASTRID synchrotron in Denmark, and the Diamond I05 beamlines to conduct ARPES measurements. HAXPES experiments have been performed at the Diamond I09 beamline, and I have visited ANTARES at Soleil to perform nano-ARPES experiments.

During my PhD I have contributed to a few papers, see here.

Igor Pro Procedures

I have written a few Igor procedures relating to loading Omicron EIS/Sphera files, generating XPS backgrounds and calculation of IMFPs. Go to downloads.
