Current research themes

Studies of structure, chemistry and morphology during vapor phase materials processing (OMVPE, MOCVD) using x-ray scattering as real-time probes of growth and processing. 

Limits of ferroelectricity in ultra-thin (nanoscale) films

Relaxation mechanisms and defect incorporation in epitaxial films

Time-resolved studies in structural and lattice response in ferroelectric thin films: polarization reversal and piezoresponse studied via x-ray scattering.

X-ray studies of relaxation processes and incorporation of In during growth of InGaN by MOCVD

Oscillatory reactions during MOCVD growth of InGaN and InN
