Dr. Jean-Claude Canry

Expertise in: Surface Analysis

Senior Scientist

Jean-Claude studied in France up to his MSc in physical-chemistry. He then obtained an MSc and a PhD in chemistry in the field of surface science from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).

He worked briefly as a field service engineer and trainer on Liquid Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) systems for Finnigan MassLab before joining the Centre for Surface and Materials Analysis (CSMA) to pursue a career in analytical services, focusing particularly on the Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) techniques.  CSMA was acquired by Lucideon in 2002 and eventually evolved into the Surface Science group.

Jean-Claude, in his analyst role, has over 20 years experience in the use of the SIMS and XPS techniques for characterizing the surface of materials and solving industrial problems and product failures.  The range of industrial areas he has served is wide and includes medical devices, pharmaceuticals, packaging, polymers, coatings, electronic/semi-conductor devices, automotive and aeronautical components, personal hygiene and household products, and lubricants.
