George Glander

Professor of Physics and Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences

George Glander grew up in Minnesota and attended Carleton College. He earned his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and did a post-doctoral fellowship at Indiana University. He taught for five years at Clarion University of Penn. prior to joining the faculty at Stetson University. His area of research is low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), which harnesses the wave nature of the electron to investigate how the atoms at the surface of a crystal arrange themselves. Much of his research has involved examining the atomic structures that are formed when a single atomic layer of a metal is deposited on a silicon crystal. This work is of interest to the semiconductor industry because the electrical properties of the metal-semiconductor junction are largely determined by the first atomic layer of metal.

Glander also serves as an associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences.
