Portable breath acetone measurements combine chemistry and spectroscopy | SPIE Newsroom: SPIE
Southwest Sciences, Inc.
Steve Massick is a Senior Research Scientist at Southwest Sciences and the principle investigator of the breath acetone work.
He received his PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Utah in 1996 for spectroscopic studies of neutral metal atom-rare gas van der Waals complexes.
From 1997 to 2001 he was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of California, Santa Barbara where he studied solution phase homogeneous catalysts using time-resolved infrared spectroscopy.

...Dr. Massick joined the staff at Southwest Sciences as a Senior Research Scientist in October, 2001.From 1997 to 2001 he was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of California, Santa Barbara where he studied reactive intermediates of solution phase homogeneous catalysts using time-resolved infrared spectroscopy.
In 1996 and 1997 he
studied gas phase Mg(NH3)n complexes using photoelectron and TOF mass spectrometric techniques at the Universite de Paris Sud, Orsay, France.At Utah his
studies involved the spectroscopic characterization of excited states of neutral metal atom-rare gas van der Waals complexes.
Dr Massick's accomplishments include 1) discovery of a new class of strongly bound, doubly-excited valence states of neutral metal atom-rare gas van der Waals molecules, 2) characterization and kinetic studies of short-lived reactive intermediates of cobalt hydroformylation catalysts at elevated temperatures and pressures, 3) investigation of trends in ionization energies of Mg(NH3)n clusters, and 4) spectroscopic characterization including rotational simulations of ?, ? and S orbital alignments of the valence and Rydberg triplet excited states of the MgAr van der Waals molecule. Dr Massick
is an author of 12 publications. firstname.lastname@example.org

With the combined NASA and VAF funding, we are able to move forward with the development of high precision, portable isotope analyzers for both biomedical and atmospheric/environmental applications," said Dr. Steve Massick, the project principal investigator.
