Linford Research Group 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Potential Graduate Students and Others who may be Interested in our Research

What type of research is done in the Linford group?

We work in three connected areas.

  1. We make new materials by a variety of means including by thin film deposition, modification of surfaces, and even creation of bulk materials.

For example, we deposit thin films for microfabrication processes by atomic layer deposition (ALD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and sputtering. We also make new materials/phases for chromatography/solid phase microextraction and for data storage.

     2. We characterize our thin films and materials.

We use X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE), time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS), wetting, low energy ion scattering (LEIS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), etc. to understand our new materials. We have published many papers in this area. In addition, we write a monthly article on surface and material characterization for Vacuum Technology and Coating (see

www.vtcmag.com).

     3. We analyze the data we generate from our surface analyses and develop new data analysis methods.

We analyze our data by (i) modeling/curve fitting the XPS and SE results we get – this is necessary to get good information out of these techniques, and (ii) analyzing series of related spectra using chemometrics methods like principal component analysis (PCA), multivariate curve resolution (MCR), cluster analysis, and pattern recognition entropy (PRE). We recently developed the PRE method.

If I didn’t study these things as an undergraduate, can I work in your group? Can I learn this?

Most graduate students that join the Linford group have not had any expertise in the areas we work in before they start. However, they generally find that they understand things well enough to begin to do research after three to six months.

Where do Linford group members get jobs?

Most of them go to semiconductor companies, e.g., Micron and Intel, and/or to companies interested in materials or surface analysis, e.g., Corning and Restek. The three focuses of our group prepare students well for these environments.

What else is unique about the Linford Group?

We tend to publish a lot, and we collaborate a lot. Most students get their names on quite a few papers, which helps them find jobs. In addition, our collaborations often lead to jobs for the graduate students. At the very least, these collaborations provide a great opportunity for the graduate students to learn from experts and to build their professional networks.

Is there anything else you can tell me about your background?

Here’s a summary of me from my CV:

Matthew Linford graduated with a B.S. in chemistry from Brigham Young University in 1990 and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in materials science and chemistry, respectively, from Stanford University in 1996. While at Stanford he published the first two papers on monolayers on hydrogen-terminated silicon with his adviser Chris Chidsey. By Google Scholar these two papers have been cited nearly 800 and 1300 times to date. After a post-doc at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Golm (previously Berlin), Germany with Helmut Möhwald studying polyelectrolyte multilayers, Linford worked in industry for three years – one year with Rohm and Haas and two years with two start-up companies (SEQ, renamed Praelux, and NanoTex). In 2000, he took a position as a faculty member at Brigham Young University and is now a full professor there. While at BYU, Linford has studied thin film deposition and characterization, new materials for separations science, statistical methods for data analysis, new materials for long-term digital data storage, and the chemomechanical functionalization of silicon. His work in separations science led to the launch of the Flare chromatography column that was sold by Diamond Analytics. His work in data storage led him to co-found Millenniata (now Yours.co), which sells a DVD disc that lasts 1000 years and a Blu-ray disc that will last at least 300. Linford has 320 publications, which include peer-reviewed papers, conference proceedings, book chapters, peer-reviewed contributions to Surface Science Spectra, commercial application notes, tutorial articles, and more than 40 patents. He is an editor for Applied Surface Science, an Elsevier journal with an impact factor of ca. 4.4. He is a contributing editor for Vacuum Technology & Coating (VT&C) for which he writes a ca. monthly column on surface and material characterization. Linford is currently serving on the executive committee for the AVS Thin Films Division and has been an associate editor for Surface Science Spectra since 2003. In 2014 he was made a fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS). In 2015 he was named an Alcuin Fellow at Brigham Young University (an award for excellence in teaching). By Google Scholar (‘Matthew Linford’, Dec.15, 2018 – note that these numbers can vary a little), he has more 9150 citations, his h-index is 41, and his i10-index is 113. His Erdös number is 4. His hobbies include tennis, piano/organ, gardening and learning languages.



FAQs for Potential Collaborators

How could we work together?

We’d be delighted to talk with you about how we might work together in one of the areas of strength in our research group (see above). Please feel free to contact me at: mrlinford@chem.byu.edu.

Is there any particular area that might lead to a collaboration?

Here are two possibilities.

  1. We’d be interested in working with collaborators to deposit thin films by ALD. We have high quality capabilities at BYU for doing this.
  2. We have a lot of strength in surface analysis. For example, if you need to do XPS, and you aren’t already an expert in this area, there is a good chance we can help you better fit and understand your XPS data – there are a lot of poorly fit XPS spectra in the literature. We could also discuss how we might be able to help you with your spectroscopic ellipsometry, ToF-SIMS, and LEIS analyses.
