Biography

Terry Alford received his doctorate in materials science and engineering from Cornell University in 1991. He joined the Arizona State University faculty in 1993 and is currently a professor and associate director of the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy in the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering

Professor Alford's teaching interests include X-ray and electron diffraction, introduction to physical materials science and laboratory, structure and properties of materials, advanced materials issues in semiconductor processing, and materials processing and synthesis.

His areas of expertise include silver and copper metallization and low-k dielectrics for future integrated circuit (IC) technologies, advanced metallization for low-power electronics and for novel IC components formation, and adhesion of sol-gel hydroxyapatite-metal systems for biomedica.
