Research Interests

Dr. Petrosky has expertise in radiation effects on electronic devices, EMP, experimental design, radiation detection, and nuclear weapon effects. Dr. Petrosky's research spans narrow- and wide-band gap materials, using combinations of electrical, optical, and absorption spectroscopy to gain information on the damaging effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Experimental techniques include I-V(T), C-V(T), photoluminescence spectroscopy, Hall Effect, and Electron Spin Resonance Spectroscopy (EPR) and applications of measurement techniques in harsh environments/in-situ measurements and obtaining real-time data. Applications include electronic switches and actuators, RF/IR sensors, force transducers, and electronic controls for use in the space and nuclear weapons environment.
