Research Interests

Professor Goeckner runs the International Center for Advanced Materials Processing at the University of Texas at Dallas. The center works on all ranges of plasma science - from fundamental fluid theory to plasma applications. The center closely with CAPST/FERI at Sungkyunkwan University (Korea) and PLANT at Nagoya University (Japan) to develop the next generation of materials processing tools. We also work with local and national industry on projects related to control of processing tools. The areas of study include processing for semiconductors, biomedical devices, flexible electronics. Other research includes Diagnostics for processing tools and Engineering Education.
