2000 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His primary areas of investigation include Mineralogy, Core–mantle boundary, Mantle, Geophysics and Analytical chemistry. His Mineralogy research incorporates themes from Amorphous solid, Silicate minerals, Silicon and Thermodynamics. The Core–mantle boundary study combines topics in areas such as Seismic wave, Outer core, Hotspot and Boundary layer.
His Mantle research includes themes of Basalt, Petrology and Ultramafic rock. His research integrates issues of Discontinuity and Anisotropy in his study of Geophysics. In the subject of general Analytical chemistry, his work in Raman spectroscopy is often linked to Scheelite, thereby combining diverse domains of study.
Quentin Williams spends much of his time researching Mineralogy, Analytical chemistry, Mantle, Infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Silicon, Silicate and Thermodynamics. His primary area of study in Analytical chemistry is in the field of Absorption spectroscopy.
His work deals with themes such as Petrology and Transition zone, which intersect with Mantle. His work carried out in the field of Infrared spectroscopy brings together such families of science as Spectral line, Phase transition, Infrared and Hydrogen bond. His research in Geophysics is mostly concerned with Core–mantle boundary.
Quentin Williams focuses on Raman spectroscopy, Analytical chemistry, Mantle, Earth and Luminescence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Chemical physics, Phase transition, Infrared spectroscopy and Brillouin scattering in addition to Raman spectroscopy. Quentin Williams has included themes like Spectral line and Infrared in his Infrared spectroscopy study.
The concepts of his Analytical chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Brillouin zone and Compressibility. Within one scientific family, Quentin Williams focuses on topics pertaining to Thermal under Mantle, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Mineralogy, Inelastic scattering and Thermal conductivity. His Mineralogy study incorporates themes from Diamond anvil cell and Laser.
Quentin Williams mainly investigates Mantle, Geochemistry, Dolomite, Petrology and Lawsonite. His Mantle study is focused on Geophysics in general. His study ties his expertise on Natural together with the subject of Petrology.
