Seán Barry

I am a professor at Carleton University. My research is centred on the deposition of thin films of metals, oxides, and nitrides by a process called atomic layer deposition. (see the research page for more information).
We intend to help bridge the gap between thin film deposition and nanoscale feature fabrication.

Key Words

I am always interested in attracting high-quality post-docs, graduate students, and fourth year Honours students.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
