Positions

Overview

  • Prof. Krzanowski's specialization is in the field of Materials Science. Before coming to UNH, he held engineering and research positions with IBM and the U.S. Army Materials Research Laboratory. His research interests are currently focused on the development and fabrication of thin-film coatings. Work is currently being carried out to develop a simple process for coating materials with titanium carbide, a hard, wear-resistant material. The mechanical properties of metallic thin films and multilayers are also being investigated. Dr. Krzanowski also specializes in the use of advanced methods for characterizing the properties of materials, such as electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and x-ray diffraction.
