His primary scientific interests are in Thin film, Polymer, Polymer chemistry, Polymer blend and Polystyrene. His Thin film research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Copolymer, Analytical chemistry and Composite material, Microstructure, Surface energy. His studies in Polymer integrate themes in fields like Biomaterial, Nanotechnology, Surface finish and Dielectric response.
His work deals with themes such as Reflectivity and Phase diagram, which intersect with Polymer chemistry. His work carried out in the field of Polymer blend brings together such families of science as Optical microscope, Spinodal decomposition, Phase, Differential scanning calorimetry and Chemical engineering. The concepts of his Polystyrene study are interwoven with issues in Dewetting, Silicon, Morphology, Substrate and Polybutadiene.
Alamgir Karim spends much of his time researching Chemical engineering, Polymer, Thin film, Nanotechnology and Copolymer. In Chemical engineering, Alamgir Karim works on issues like Polymer blend, which are connected to Phase. His Thin film research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Crystallization, Composite material, Surface energy, Analytical chemistry and Substrate.
His study on Characterization, Nanomaterials and Nanoscopic scale is often connected to NIST as part of broader study in Nanotechnology. His Copolymer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemical physics, Grazing-incidence small-angle scattering and Lamellar structure. Alamgir Karim has included themes like Dewetting and Silicon in his Polystyrene study.
Chemical engineering, Copolymer, Polymer, Nanoparticle and Thin film are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Self-assembly, Ionic liquid and Solvent in his study of Chemical engineering. His Copolymer research is included under the broader classification of Composite material.
His Polymer research integrates issues from Nanoscopic scale, Nanocomposite and Relaxation. His work focuses on many connections between Nanoscopic scale and other disciplines, such as Nano-, that overlap with his field of interest in Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine. His Thin film research focuses on Polyacrylonitrile and how it connects with Lithography and Capillary action.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Chemical engineering, Copolymer, Composite material, Polymer and Nanoparticle. In general Chemical engineering, his work in Nanocomposite is often linked to Water splitting linking many areas of study.
