Design, development, implementation, and optimization of accelerator-based techniques for fundamental research and/or interdisciplinary applications. These are two examples:
• 2005-2010: I designed, built, and optimized the Coincident Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (CRBS) apparatus at JUVAC, during my Ph.D. research (under the supervision of Dr. Dia-Eddin Arafah and Dr. Rami M. Ali). CRBS is a novel combination of traditional Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS), Time-of-flight coincidence (ToF), and position-imaging technique to simultaneously determine the final charge states of the backscattered and recoil ions under single collision conditions.
• 2015-Present: I am working on upgrading the PIXE-RBS beamline at JUVAC, and optimizing it (mainly but not exclusively) for atmospheric aerosol analysis, in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Austria.
