Who is J. A. Panitz?
John A. Panitz is the co-inventor of the Atom-Probe Field Ion Microscope and the inventor of the 10-cm atom-probe, the Imaging Atom-Probe, the LIFE detector, Isothermal Ramped Field-Desorption Spectroscopy, Field-Ion tomography, and the PhotoFEEM technique.
Panitz discovered the field-adsorption phenomenon. The 10-cm Atom-Probe and the Imaging Atom-Probe are the progenitors of all later atom probe instruments including the commercial instruments available today.
