About Dr Wojcik

Adam Wojcik completed a PhD in thin film deposition and growth techniques in 1989 at Imperial College and then worked in the scientific instrument industry for six years and as a visiting lecturer at Imperial before being appointed a Lecturer at UCL in 1995. In addition to his science qualifications, Adam has also received a BA and MA in Archaeology and Classics. Adam is a member of the Department’s Materials and Structural Integrity Research group.

Research Summary

Adam Wojcik’s research interests reside in the study of materials and in the development of techniques for materials testing. His experience lies in the deposition of thin films of materials such as oxides and semiconductors using novel metallorganic chemical vapour techniques, but he is also involved in the design and use of equipment for detecting and monitoring the growth of cracks in metals using the AC and DC Potential Drop method. Adam works with Electron Beam Induced Current techniques for the detection of defects in materials and has research interests in the field of solid oxide fuel cells. His recent work includes the development of a novel form of thermal cycling apparatus for ceramic specimens, enhancing bond strengths of dental adhesives, and the use of ammonia gas as a fuel source in fuel cells. Adam Wojcik also works in cross disciplinary areas where material science meets archaeology and paleontology.
