We study both synthetic inorganic chemistry and physical chemistry related to thin film deposition. Our main focus is on precursor design and mechanistic studies for Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), but this leads us into many interesting avenues, including device fabrication, process design, tool building and testing, thermolysis and experimental methods design.
