Dr. Jacek Jasinski
Materials characterization theme leader at the Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research
Dr. Jacek Jasinski leads materials characterization research at the University of Louisville's Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research and oversees the materials characterization service center. His work focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying physical properties and functionality of technologically important device structures and materials.
Jasinski has authored or co-authored more than 125 original research papers in refereed journals, more than 40 articles in refereed conference proceedings and co-authored a book chapter in "Dilute III-V Nitride Semiconductors and Materials Systems."
Currently, his research interests include functional materials for renewable energy technologies, such as solar cells and solar fuels. He is also studying energy storage and metal, metal oxide and semiconductor nanostructures for catalytical, optical, sensing and bio-medical applications.
Jasinski earned his master's degree in solid state physics and his doctorate in physics of semiconductors from Warsaw University in Poland.
