PhD Stanford University (1971)
Condensed Matter Experiment
Research interests are focused on the fabrication and characterization of thin-film structures and are based on the recognition that unusual physical phenomena occur in restricted dimensions and at interfaces. Systems under study include metals, composites, semiconductors, dielectrics, magnetic films, superconductors, complex oxides and carbon-sixty molecular monolayers.
