Martin Reiser joined the University of Maryland as associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics. He has been a full professor there since 1970. He was co-founder of the University of Marylands Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). His research interests are in the space charge physics of intense beams, which is studied in scaled experiments with low energy electrons. Professor Reiser is the author of more than 300 research papers and served on numerous committees. Professor OShea received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Maryland. His early research was at University of California, Los Alamos National Laboratory, in the Accelerator Technology Division and the APEX Free-Electron Laser Project, and later at the Duke University Free-Electron Laser Laboratory. From 2001-2005 he was Director of the IREAP and played a major role in establishing the Maryland Nano Center. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Professor OSheas experimental and theoretical research is in the area of charged particle beam physics, technology, and applications.Reiser, Martin is the author of 'Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams' with ISBN 9783527407415 and ISBN 3527407413.
