Joseph E. Greene - 1999 Turnbull Lecturer

Joseph E. Greene, University of Illinois

1999 David Turnbull Lecturer

"For contributions to the use of non-thermal methods in the growth of thin films and the engineering of their phase, composition, and microstructure; and for excellence in teaching and writing."

Joe Greene is the director of the Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory, the Donald Willett Professor of Materials Science at the University of Illinois, and the Tage Erlander Professor of Materials Physics at Linköping University, Sweden. The focus of his research has been the development of an atomic-level understanding of adatom/surface interactions during the dynamic process of vapor-phase crystal growth in order to controllably manipulate microchemistry, microstructure, and, hence, physical properties. His work has involved film growth by all forms of sputter deposition, solid and gas-source MBE, UHV-CVD, MOCVD and ALE.

Greene has published more than 300 papers and review articles and 18 book chapters, and has co-edited four books in the general areas of crystal growth, thin-film physics and surface science. In particular, he has used energetic accelerated condensing species and UV photochemistry for probing as well as stimulating surface reactions that do not proceed thermally. Greene has presented 270 invited talks and 17 plenary lectures at international meetings.

He is currently editor-in-chief of Thin Solid Films and past editor of CRC Critical Reviews in Solid State and Materials Sciences. He is active in the American Vacuum Society (AVS) where he has served on the trustees, as chairman of the thin film division, twice as a member of the board of directors, as president of the society in 1989, and currently as secretary. He has also chaired the thin film division of the International Union of Vacuum Science and Techniques and is currently their education chair. Greene has served on the governing board of the American Institute of Physics and is presently on the executive committee of the materials physics division of the APS.

He has received several major awards from the AVS, the Swedish Natural Science Research Council, the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the U.S. Department of Energy and the American Physical Society (APS). He was named a Senior University of Illinois Scholar, an honorary doctor of science in materials physics from Linköping University in Sweden, a fellow of the AVS, a fellow of the APS, an AVS distinguished lecturer, and First D.B. Willett Professor of Engineering.

At the 1999 MRS Fall Meeting, Greene delivered an awards talk entitled "Atomic-Level Control During Film Growth Under Highly Kinetically Constrained Conditions: H-Mediation and Ultra-High Doping in Si1-xGex Gas-Source MBE."
