Events at Physics
Dr. Persing obtained his B.S. and Ph.D. (Engineering Physics) from UW-Madison. After his work at UW he took a position at the Australian National University (ANU) conducting research into the fabrication of planar optical devices using plasma deposition and etching of silicon dioxide. He then joined the Australian Scientific Instruments to develop a tool principally devoted to geological dating. After his sojourn in Australia he helped run a lab at the U. S. Geological Survey in California with the Sensitive High
Resolution Ion MicroProbe as its focal point. Currently he is a Senior Member of Technical Staff at Applied Materials (AMAT) where he helped design and now is developing implant and deposition processes for AMAT's Plasma Doping tool (PLAD).
