Multi-functional Thin Film Materials

Welcome to the website for the multi-functional thin film materials research group at Oregon State University. The group is lead by Brady Gibbons, faculty of Materials Science in the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering.

Our current research interests include microstructure, processing, and property relationships in functional thin film materials, with a focus on processing, novel instrumentation, and integration science; novel dielectric, superconducting, semiconducting, and pyroelectric materials for energy conversion and energy storage; ferroelectric and piezoelectric thin films; crystallography and diffraction characterization methods; and spectroscopic ellipsometry.

The Gibbons Research Lab can be found in room 300 Dearborn Hall on the Oregon State University campus. Our contact information is:
