Pamburayi Mpofu

PhD student

Doctoral Student in Chemistry / Materials Science - specialization in Materials Chemistry

Pamburayi Mpofu is a Doctoral Candidate in Materials Science and a member of the Henrik Pedersen Group in the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology at Linköping University, Sweden. 

Pamburayi received his M.Sc in Chemistry in 2021 and soon after started his PhD journey. His research interests are in Inorganic Materials Chemistry with a focus on atomic layer deposition (ALD). He is currently working on understanding, on a fundamental atomic level, the surface chemistry governing the deposition of metastable ternary nitride (in particular AlTiN) thin layers of materials by time-resolved Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and or ALD, for protective hard coating applications.
