He conducted his PhD studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Department of Applied Physics in the field of growth dynamics of thin film coatings and glancing angle deposited (GLAD) nanostructures. After he received his doctoral degree in 2003 and a period of postdoctoral research at RPI, in 2006 he joined University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) Department of Applied Science as a faculty member. He also became the graduate coordinator of the Applied Science PhD program at UALR. In recent years, Dr. Karabacak has been working on various projects on the properties and applications of GLAD nanostructures and physical vapor deposited thin films. He is primarily interested in alternative energy technologies including solar cells, fuel cells, and batteries. His research led to numerous awards including American Vacuum Society Graduate Research Award and University of Arkansas Excellence in Research Award, and also to several grants from NSF, NASA, and DOE. As of 2016, he is the author and co-author of about 80 journal papers, 40 peer-reviewed conference proceedings, two book chapters, two patents, and several pending patents.
