University at Buffalo, State University of New YorkUnited States of America

Jason Benedict received his B.S. in Chemistry from Arizona State University in 2001. He completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Washington in the laboratory of Professor Bart Kahr in 2007. His graduate work involved the optical characterization of anisotropic media including dyed crystals, spherulites, and poled polymers. He was a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Philip Coppens at the University at Buffalo from 2008-2011 developing time-resolved X-ray diffraction techniques as well as synthesizing and characterizing functionalized semiconductor nanoparticles. In 2011, Dr Benedict joined the Department of Chemistry at the University at Buffalo as an Assistant Professor where he is developing new 'in-house' time-resolved X-ray diffraction, imaging, and spectroscopic techniques and synthesizing novel molecular nanomaterials for a variety of materials science applications.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Jason B. Benedict

The advent of X-ray diffraction in the early twentieth century transformed crystallography from an area of scientific inquiry largely limited to physics, mineralogy, and mathematics, to a highly interdisciplinary field which now includes nearly all life and physical sciences as well as materials science and engineering. This book is a collection of works showcasing some of the most recent developments in the field of crystallography.
