The Surface Science and Interface Engineering Group

The research in our group is focused on understanding and controlling surface and interfacial chemistry and applying this knowledge to a range of problems in semiconductor processing, micro-and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, and sustainable and renewable energy.

Below is a video special of Professor Stacey Bent explaning the group's research of nanotechnology in a video interview series done by the Stanford School of Engineering, along with a feature of the group's area-selective ALD work on the cover of Chemical & Engineering News. C&EN Cover Feature

We also feature a whiteboard video summary of the group's research in sustainable energy technologies.

Our research was also featured on the podcast "Nanovation" by Professor Michael Filler. The episode can be heard below where Professor Stacey Bent explains some of the group's research, atomic layer deposition (ALD), and the exciting innovations it brings to the field of nanotechnology. Listen to "32: Stacey Bent - A Ph.D. thesis in Russia" on Spreaker.

Stacey recently discussed how the group balances fundamental and applied ALD on the ALD stories podcast series (Podcast link)
