Professor, Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA
Professor Douglas B. Chrisey is a Professor of Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Virginia in 1987 and then joined the US Naval Research Laboratory where he spent the next 17 years. His research has resulted in more than 300 citable publications, over 6,000 citations and an h-index value of 42. He has edited or co-edited 15 books and has 18 patents. He also serves as an Scientific Advisor to Nanotherapeutics, the Chief Technology Officer for Nano Solutions, and is President of Omni-Metrics.
His research interests include the novel laser fabrication of thin films and coatings of advanced electronic, sensor, biomaterial, and energy storage. These materials were used in device configurations for testing and typically have an improved figure-of-merit. He is considered one of the pioneers in the field of Pulsed Laser Deposition and was the lead inventor of MAPLE processing technique. He is currently publishing in areas of metallic nanoparticle fabrication, biosensing, bionanotechnology, stem cell processing, and polyamorphism.
