Dr. Naugle's research interests include the use of sophisticated experimental techniques to study high Tc and conventional superconductors and their interplay with magnetic nanostructures as well as highly disordered metals; development of new materials for future technology. Professor Naugle has been a member of the Texas A&M faculty since 1969. He received his B.A. degree from Rice University and his Ph.D. at Texas A&M. He was a NATO postdoctoral fellow at Gottingen and a research associate at the University of Maryland. Dr. Naugle and faculty members from chemistry, chemical engineering, and mechanical engineering departments have established an interdisciplinary materials research program which has now morphed into the Department of Material Science and Engineering. Though his primary appointment is in Physics and Astronomy, his research program offers students the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary research using advanced characterization techniques and preparation facilities.
