Research Interest: Polymer Physics, Complex Condensed Matter Physics

Computational and fundamental study of self-organized order in multi-component polymeric alloys: multi-block copolymers and star terpolymers. We intend to find novel co-continuous structures and complex crystalline or quasi-crystalline ones.

(1) Monte Carlo Simulations of Self-organized Structures
 Some examples:
 ABC linear block copolymers
 ABC star block copolymer
 ABCD star block copolymers: Cell crystals
 Diagonal Bond Method
  Polymeric quasicrystals
  Archimedean Tiling phases
(2) Study of Confined Polymers
  Undulation effect (poster)
  Curvature effect 1 & Curvature effect 2

 Voronoi space division of a polymer (poster)
(3) Physics of Quasicrystals
  Polymeric quasicrystals
  Archimedean Tiling phases
 1D Fibonacci quasicrystals
  Self-similar polynomials
 Ising models on Penrose, dual Penrose, diced, and Kagome lattices
 Phason unlocking phase transition in icosahedral quasicrystals and the Ising model
Anisotropic phason flips
  Plastic deformations without dislocations
