Professor, Physics Department
Experimental condensed matter physics with particular emphasis on thin-film coatings and materials research. The fabrication and characterization of thin films provide essential insight into the fundamental understanding of matter at the nanoscale. From an application perspective, these films are at the core of several technologies and industries, including catalysis, sensing, photovoltaics, microelectronics, optoelectronics, and corrosion.
· Deposition and characterization of thin films
· Materials synthesis and modification
· Optical properties of solids
· Functional coatings: photovoltaics, transparent conductors, heat mirrors, gas sensors
