Teerakiat Kerdcharoen has an expertise
in nanoscale theory, modeling and
simulation. This strategic scientific
discipline is presently of central
interest among industrial nations
due to its enabling role to nanotechnology.
His research covers development of
methodology and algorithm, writing
computer codes, building high-performance
computational facilities and application
of these tools to nanosystems. Recent
applications are nano-dot (i.e. bucky
ball), nano-wire (i.e. carbon nanotube
and conducting polymer), molecular
electronics, soft-condensed matters
and model of coordination in protein.
In collaboration with Professor Keiji
Morokuma, he has developed a new combined
quantum mechanical / molecular mechanical
method capable of handling particle
exchange between subsystems. The new
method named ONIOM-XSOL extends the
capability of the well-known ONIOM
method (which is developed by professer
Morokuma and has become standard tool
in most molecular modeling softwares)
to cope with dynamical systems.
Dr. Kerdcharoen works in a nanotechnology
research group formed with Dr.
Tanakorn Osotchan, Dr.
Toemsak Srikhirin and Dr.
Udom Robkob. Therefore, the team
can enjoy integration of expertise
from theoretical, computational and
experimental areas, which is important
for delivering real-world engineering
