Curriculum vitae


Assoc.Prof.Dr.Jakrapong Kaewkhao received his Ph.D. degree in Physics from King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), Thailand, in 2008. After his graduate, he attended postdoctoral research of an x-rays induced luminescence study in glasses at KyungPook National University (KNU), Korea, in 20112012. In the same year, he has been awarded as the best alumni of Silpakorn University, Thailand. Through his academic career, his research interests involve in glass scintillators, Ln3+ doped glasses for photonics and scintillation materials applications, color glasses, radiation shielding glasses (x-rays, gamma, neutron and charged particles), natural gemstone enhancements, and imitation jewelry from glasses. Among his research topics the imitation jewelry from glasses research has been awarded by several national organizations, e.g., Thailand Research Fund (TRF), National Innovation Agency (NIA), The Science Society of Thailand (SST), and National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT). In addition, his recent work which focused on the development of imitation of color-changed gemstone for ornament products has been awarded by National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) in 2015. This project has also been awarded by various events such as the Best Innovation Awards by the 43rd International Exhibition of Innovation of Geneva, Switzerland, the Medaille D’Argent Silver Medal Silbermadaille in 2015, and Seoul International Invention Fair in 2016. Moreover, He has been awarded by National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) in 2017 from research project of "Development of lead free glass for radiation shielding material". 

Currently, he is a director of the Center of Excellence in Glass Technology and Materials Science (CEGM), Nakhon Pathom Rajabhat University (NPRU), Thailand. He has handled several research projects in glass science and technology, radiation physics, and gemstone enhancements. He is also a member of AMoRE collaboration (Advanced Molybdenum Based Rare Experiment), to investigate mass of neutrinos, which supported by Institute for Basic Science (IBS, Korea). He has been the keynote/invited speaker in many international conferences on physics and related topics in different countries, e.g., Thailand, USA, Russia, Vietnam, Korea, India, Laos, and Indonesia. For academic society contribution, he has also been guest editors and reviewers of several international journals as well as a member of the international radiation physics society (IRPS). He has been chair of American Ceramic Society: Thailand Chapter (ACerS:Thailand) and executive comiittee of Materials Research Society of Thailand (MRS-Thailand)  Especially, He has been guest editor for Radiation Physics and Chemistry journal (Elsevier publisher, impact factor = 2.776 ) during 2019-2022 and Optik (Elsevier publisher, impact factor = 2.840) in 2022. During 2014-2021, he was a visiting professor at various institutes such as Radiation Science Research Institute, KyungPook National University (Korea), Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, Institut Teknologi Sumatra (Indonesia) and Sri Venkateswara University, India. He also was guest scientist at department of physics, KyungPook National University (KNU), Korea in 2016. (Supported by 2016 NRCT - NRF Scientist Exchange Program). Apart from his academic involvements, he is currently a consultant for color glass productions and gemstone enhancements in glass and jewelry businesses.
