Dr. Jhanis GonzalezTechnical Director, Product R&D and Management at Applied Spectra Inc., has researched the chemical analysis of solid samples with laser induced breakdown spectroscopy and fundamental ablation mechanisms for close to 20 years. He was a Visiting Scientist, Chemist Postdoctoral Fellow, and a Project Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories and has been published in the Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry.

Jhanis’ research, focused on understanding the mechanisms of laser-material interaction through the use of both LIBS and LA-ICP-MS, has helped Applied Spectra remain on the cutting edge of laser chemical analysis. He received his B.S. in Chemistry and his Ph.D. in Area-Physics Chemistry from the Universidad Central de Venezuela, Caracas.

Mr. Charles Sisson, Applications Scientist, has been working with Applied Spectra Inc. for over 8 years in applications and research and development with respect to using LIBS and LA ICP MS as quantitative and qualitative tools.

Mr. Sisson has background in the study of physical and fluorescence properties in conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CP dots) at Clemson University. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga where he studied small molecule synthesis and characterization.
