Richard A Dunlap received a BS from Worcester PolytechnicInstitute (Physics 1974), an A.M from Dartmouth College(Physics 1976), and a PhD from Clark University (Physics1981). Since 1981, he has been a professor in the Department ofPhysics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University andcurrently holds a position as Research Professor. He was Facultyof Science Killam Research Professor from 2001 to 2006 andDirector of the Dalhousie University Institute for Research inMaterials from 2009 to 2015. Professor Dunlap’s research interests include nuclearspectroscopies, magnetic materials, quasicrystals, critical phenomena, and advancedbattery materials. He has published more than 300 refereed research papers and hispreviously published books include Experimental Physics: Modern Methods (Oxford1988), The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Numbers (World Scientific 1997), AnIntroduction to the Physics of Nuclei and Particles (Brooks/Cole 2004), SustainableEnergy (Cengage, 1st edn 2015, 2nd edn 2019), Novel Microstructures for Solids(IOP/Morgan & Claypool 2018), Particle Physics (IOP/Morgan & Claypool 2018),The Mössbauer Effect (IOP/Morgan & Claypool 2019), Lasers and Their Applicationto the Observation of Bose-Einstein Condensates (IOP/Morgan & Claypool 2019),Electrons in Solids-Contemporary Topics (IOP/Morgan & Claypool 2019), and Energy from Nuclear Fusion (IOP Publishing 2021).
