Paul M Haney

Paul Haney is a Project Leader in the Nanoscale Processes and Measurements Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division. He received a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from The Ohio State University, and a Ph.D. in Physics from The University of Texas at Austin. His thesis consisted of first-principles calculations of electron and spin transport in magnetic and antiferromagnetic multilayers. Paul joined NIST as an NRC Postdoctoral Research Associate in 2007, where he worked with Mark Stiles on the theory of spin transfer torque in the presence of spin-orbit coupling. In 2009 he shifted to the newly formed Energy Research Group in the former CNST, where he has focused primarily on the impact of disorder on the efficiency of photovoltaic materials, and on the development of models for the interpretation of experimental techniques such as electron beam induced current and two-photon time resolved photoluminescence.
