Sean Barry

Department of Chemistry
Carleton University

I am an associate 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 about this).
We intend to help bridge the gap between thin film deposition and nanoscale feature fabrication.

Key Words

  • Main Group Synthesis
  • Transistion Metal Synthesis
  • Ligand Design
  • Thermal Characterization
  • Thin Film Deposition
  • Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)

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.
