Plasma Expert to Address Symposium
Dr. Matthew Goeckner will give a keynote address at ISPlasma2011, the third international symposium on advanced plasma science.
Taking place next March in Nagoya, Japan, the symposium will gather leading researchers to discuss advanced plasma science, its application for nitrides and nanomaterials, and new systems for industrial technological transfer. One of the symposium's goals is to examine environmental and energy issues that advanced plasma science can help address.
Goeckner is a professor of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering and associate head of the mechanical engineering department. He also runs the International Center for Advanced Materials Processing at UT Dallas. The center works closely with groups in South Korea and Japan to develop next-generation materials processing tools.
His research also concerns working with local and national industry on projects related to the control of processing tools. Those areas of study include processing for semiconductors, biomedical devices and flexible electronics.
