The Adomaitis Group's research focuses on simulation-based design, optimization, and experimental evaluation of advanced materials manufacturing processes, and is particularly interested in developing new reactor designs for thin-film deposition of semiconductor materials for electronic and solar energy applications. Current projects include the development of multiscale models of atomic layer deposition processes, solar generation of hydrogen, planetary chemical vapor deposition (CVD), response surface modeling for nanomanufacturing applications, and combinatorial CVD. The group's work is supported by the University of Maryland Energy Research Center, the National Science Foundation, and industrial partners.
