"Parallel Computations of Electron-Molecule Collisions in Processing Plasmas"
B. Vincent Mckoy
California Institute of Technology

Vincent McKoy is Professor of Theoretical Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology where he has been a member of the faculty since 1964. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Yale University in 1964. His research interests include theoretical and computational methods for studies of collisions of low-energy electrons in gases. A key feature of this effort has been the development of highly scalable strategies and algorithms which make it possible to exploit large parallel systems in such studies. These advances have enabled extensive applications to gases of interest in low-temperature plasmas that are widely used in the semiconductor industry. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and is listed in Who’s Who in America and in American Men of Science. He has been a Fellow of the Alfred P. Sloan and Guggenheim Memorial Foundations and received the Governor-General’s (of Canada) Medal for Academic Excellence (1960).
