Doug Pelleymounter

Doug has been working in the thin film industry since before the turn of the century (1978, to be exact). He has been trying to control electrons and ions in vacuum systems all of this time. He firmly believes that if Mother Nature abhors vacuum she really punishes people who try to do work in it. He joined AE in 1997 and hopes that he has had a positive impact on the industry.
