Prof. Hwang's research interest is in the microstructure evolutions during material processing, especially, abnormal grain growth and thin film growth. The topics are approached both experimentally and theoretically, occasionally using computer simulation. The most focused work has been the theory of charged clusters, which is suggested as a new understanding of thin film growth. This topic is related to the growth mechanism of thin films and nanowires, nanotubes prepared by chemical vapor deposition. The size distribution of charged clusters or nanoparticles is measured by differential mobility analyzer (DMA). He published more than 100 papers in SCI-indexed journals
