Areas of Expertise
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.
