                       Terry A. Michalske

Terry Michalske currently serves as the Director for the Department of Energy/Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies.  He also heads the Integrated Nanotechnologies Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.  He received his Ph.D. in Ceramic Science at Alfred University (1979) and was then awarded a National Research Council Postdoctoral fellowship to work at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  In 1981, Terry joined Sandia National Laboratories as a Member of the Technical Staff in the Ceramics Division.  Terry's technical interests are in the areas of interfacial phenomena, nanoscale properties of materials, and integrated microsystems.  His work on the stress corrosion fracture of silica has been recognized by several international awards including the Ross Coffin Purdy Award (1985) and the Weyl International Glass Science Award (1989). Terry has developed several new programs using scanning probe microscopy to explore the nanometer-scale response of surfaces and interfaces.  He is co-recipient of an R&D 100 Award (1994) for development of the Interfacial Force Microscope.  Terry directs technical programs addressing the molecular-scale origins of lubrication and wear, self-assembled nanocomposites and the development of integrated chemical micro-systems.  Terry has organized several international conferences including the Gordon Conference on Solid State Studies in Ceramics (1990) and the 1997 SPIE Symposium on Micromachining and Imaging and is co-editor of the proceedings from the 4 th International Conference on Nanometer-Scale Science and Technology, NANO IV (1996). He currently serves as an elected officer for the Nanometer-Scale Science and Technology Division of the American Vacuum Society and is on the organizing committee for NANO VI. Terry is a Fellow of the American Vacuum Society and the American Ceramic Society and is an active member of the American Physical Society and the Materials Research Society.
