  • Stephen McCoy, PhD

    Technical Advisor

    Dr. Stephen McCoy has cumulative experience in materials growth and analysis, device design, microfabrication, and failure analysis. His research-oriented work started in failure analysis under Dr. James Lloyd at IBM in 2012, where he focused on time-dependent dielectric breakdown and electromigration. He subsequently earned a bachelor’s degree in materials science in 2014. Soon after, in pursuit of a PhD, he began work in applied superconductivity and thin film analysis at the University of California, Riverside. Currently Dr. Stephen McCoy is working as a DOC affiliate with the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado under Dr. Sam Benz. In support of this project, Dr. McCoy offers the utilization of NIST’s world-class low temperature Nb nano fabrication process line as well as team support from the researchers residing within NIST, Boulder’s Physical Measurement Laboratory Division (PML).
