Dr. Dale L. Perry is a Senior Scientist in chemistry. His research interests are in solid state inorganic synthesis and spectroscopy and inorganic chemical systems and materials, which include those of transition, main group, lanthanide, and actinide metal ions. The classes of compounds and materials on which his research has focused include metal ion-organic complexes, inorganic thin films, semiconductors, superconductors, mixed metal ion oxide catalysts, inorganic crystals, inorganic scintillation materials, and inorganic polymers. He is the author and co-author of over three hundred contributed and invited scientific presentations, refereed journal publications, book chapters, and numerous invited seminars at universities, national laboratories, and industry. He is the editor and author of more than a dozen books, including Materials Synthesis and Characterization, Applications of Analytical Techniques to the Characterization of Materials, and Applications of Synchrotron Radiation Techniques to Materials Science. He has conducted workshops related to the characterization of inorganic materials and analysis using X-ray photoelectron, Auger, infrared, Raman, nuclear magnetic resonance, and Mossbauer spectroscopy. He has also been an organizer of symposia concerning the application of spectroscopy to materials research, synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials, and the application of surface spectroscopy to materials studies. His research also includes the area of forensics and sensors and the applications of spectroscopy in these fields.
He received his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Houston and was both a Welch Postdoctoral Fellow and a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice University. He was a Miller Fellow in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, and is currently a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (London) and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
