Paul McIntyre's group performs research on nanostructured inorganic materials for applications in electronics, energy technologies and sensors. He is best known for his work on metal oxide/semiconductor interfaces, ultrathin dielectrics, defects in complex metal oxide thin films, and nanostructured Si-Ge single crystals. His research team synthesizes materials, characterizes their structures and compositions with a variety of advanced microscopies and spectroscopies, studies the passivation of their interfaces, and measures functional properties of devices.
Paul McIntyre received a B.A.Sc in metals and materials engineering from the University of British Columbia in 1988 and a Sc.D. in ceramics from MIT in 1993. He was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT and Los Alamos National Laboratory before joining Texas Instruments, Inc. After leaving Texas Instruments, Paul joined Stanford University as an Assistant Professor in 1997.
Currently, Paul McIntyre serves as Department Chair of Materials Science and Engineering, is a Senior Fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy, and is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering. Previously, he has served as Deputy Director and then Director of the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials (GLAM). He is also a Principal Editor of MRS Communications.
