12:15 pm  Title:  In Operando XPS Study on Atomic Layer Etching of Fe and Co Using Cl2 and Acetylacetone or Hexafluoroacetylacetone
 Presenter:  Dr. Robert Opila

Robert L. Opila received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Chicago. He then joined Bell Laboratories, where he studied the role of surfaces and interfaces in electronic and photonic materials and devices. He was named Distinguished Member of Technical Staff and promoted to Technical Supervisor. Since 2002, he has been with the Materials Science Department at the University of Delaware, where his research now includes photovoltaic and thermoelectric materials as well as semiconductor processing. Opila also has appointments in the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Chemistry.


Dr. Opila is a Fellow of the American Vacuum Society and an editor of Applied Surface Science. He has completed terms as Fulbright Fellow at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, and as Visiting Professorial Fellow at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. In 2015-16 he served as president of the faculty senate at the University of Delaware. Opila is currently an IPA program director of the Electronic and Photonic Materials Program, in the Division of Materials Science at the National Science Foundation.
