Martin Seah MBE 1941 - 2021

June 21st 2021
It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Dr Martin Seah MBE in early June. Martin's career directly contributed to the success of the Kratos' surface analysis business group, establishing XPS as the primary technique for chemical surface characterisation. Whilst we mourn the loss, we also celebrate the significant contributions that Martin made to the advancement of XPS, AES and the surface analysis community.
