About Natale Ianno
Since joining the faculty in 1981, he has established an extensive research program in Thin Film Material Deposition and Processing. This work has included Pulsed Laser Deposition of a variety of materials, the sputter deposition of piezoelectric, optical and tribological thin films. He also has been involved in high density plasma etching of silicon and germanium. Recently, he has been developing and employing hollow cathode jet plasma jet deposition to grow unique, metastable column IV semiconductor alloys.
