J. A. Jaszczak - Research Interests

Computational condensed matter physics

Professor Jaszczak's research focuses on theory and computer modeling of materials. His group is currently collaborating with experimental groups in both departments of Physics and Electrical and computer engineering to model the electron transport in multi-island tunnel junction devices. Prior research has focused on materials with interfaces, such as surfaces, grain boundaries or interphase boundaries play an important role. He uses various simulation methods such as Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics, as well as numerical and analytical techniques.

Dr. Jaszczak has interests which include electon tunneling devices, elastic properties of superlattices, phase transitions at surfaces, crystal shapes, crystal growth and etching, and nanotechnology education.
