Author Biography - Michael C. Petty
Michael C. Petty, Professor of Engineering and Co-Director of Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics, University of Durham, UK Michael Petty graduated from the University of Sussex with a BSc (First Class Honours) in Electronics. He subsequently obtained his PhD from Imperial College, University of London for work on the electrical and optical properties of semiconducting inorganic thin films. More recently, his research activities have expanded to encompass thin films, in particular Langmuir-Blodgett films, of organic materials. He has a special interest in the application of such thin layers to electronic and opto-electronic devices. Professor Petty has lectured extensively worldwide and published over 250 papers in these subjects. In 1994, he was awarded the DSc degree from the University of Sussex. Professor Petty is the UK editor of the Elsevier Journal of Materials Science and Engineering C and Co-Director of the Durham Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics. He was Chairman of the School of Engineering at Durham University from Jan 1997 to Aug 2000.
