Summary

Dan Haneman was Personal Chair in Physics at the University of New South Wales from 1983 to 1998. He built an international reputation for his work on the structure and electronic properties of semiconductor surfaces. He pioneered photoemission and low energy electron diffraction measurements on surfaces cleaved in ultra high vacuum, and developed the well known 'buckled surface' model for the reconstructed atomic arrangement of germanium and silicon surfaces. He pioneered the application of electron paramagnetic resonance to surfaces of semiconductors; made the first experimental determination of the surface electron wave functions and hence determined the correct surface structure of AlSb and GaAs; made substantial contributions to the theory of the photo-electrochemical cell; and discovered the phenomenon of field-enhanced conductivity in amorphous silicon super lattices.
