Professor Paine's research interests are in thin film characterization and processing with a focus on interfaces and interface stability in electronic thin film systems. The evolution of microstructure as a function of processing conditions is being studied in a wide range of materials synthesized by physical vapor deposition techniques. Key characterization techniques include x-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, semiconductor device measurements.
David Paine performs research in the general areas of thin films, interfaces, and electronic materials in the Division of Engineering at Brown University. His current focus is on oxide electronics, electron microscopy, and physical vapor deposition technology. He serves as Director of the Brown University Electron Microscope Facility.
