V. L. V. Narayanachari Kondapalli is a Research Associate working with Prof. Michael J Bedjyk at Northwestern University. His expertise is developing thin film materials in ultra-clean environments like Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) and Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD). Surface and interface characterization for structure and chemistry of these materials using in-house X-rays and synchrotron sources at APS, Argonne National Lab. His contributions to the SQMS project include the development of epitaxial Nb/Al2O3 and the study of oxidation and anisotropic superconducting behavior of the epitaxial Nb films.
