Project "Study of macromolecular and supermolecular structures of solid-state materials

Provider: Univerzita Pardubice
Programe: Student Grant Competition
Duration: 2015-01-01 – 2015-12-31
Workpkace: Faculty of Chemical Technology
Guarantor: prof. Ing. Petr Němec, Ph.D.
Project proposal "Study of macromolecular and supermolecular structures of solid-state materials", jointly proposed by Institute of Chemistry and Technology of Macromolecular Materials and Department of Graphics Arts and Photophysics, Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice, is oriented to study composite materials and their constituents - polymeric and inorganic matrices, inorganic pigments and fillers, particle and fiber reinforcements. The project is focused on the compounds and materials covering construction and building materials, protective layers for surface modification of metals (anticorrosive paints), biomaterials for applications in medicine and compounds for surface modifications of textile materials. Further, the projects is focused on the study of properties and modifications of pulp, paper and other materials based on cellulose. Also, materials for applications in printing technologies and selected phenomena from the field of photophysics as well as fabrication and characterization of thin films and their structures will be investigated.
 

 

Project "Innovation of laboratory equipment and materials for the branch of Graphic Arts (Departments of Graphic Arts and Photophysics)"

Provider: Ministerstvo školství, mládeže a tělovýchovy
Programe: Internal development competition
Duration: 2016-01-01 – 2016-12-31
Workpkace: Faculty of Chemical Technology

The project concerns with the innovation of laboratory focused on measuring and characterisation of properties of printing inks and varnishes. New equipment will replace old one, which is in an unsatisfactory condition. The equipment and special printing inks (conductive, thermochromic, etc.) would be used mainly in laboratory tasks of four subjects (Lab. Pract. in Printing Techn. II and IV, Special Projects in Printing Techn. I and II), and these devices also will find use in the measurement of experimental parts of bachelor and diploma thesis. Within lab. exercises, emphasis is placed on developing students' skills to solve practical problems and the processing of each task is to deepen the theoretical knowledge with practical experience. Approval of the project would allow the improvement of the educational process, which is conditional on the use of modern equipment, devices, materials and standards. It will increase the practical preparedness of students and their employability.
 

 

Amorphous chalcogenide thin films: photoinduced phenomena

Provider: Grantová agentura ČR
Programe: Standard projects
Duration: 2015-01-01 – 2017-12-31
Workpkace: Faculty of Chemical Technology
Guarantor: doc. Ing. Petr Němec, Ph.D.
Co-gurarantor:
The aim of the project is using advanced physical methods of thin films deposition (pulsed laser deposition, radio-frequency magnetron sputtering, etc.) for the fabrication of thin amorphous chalcogenide films. Prepared thin films will be studied from the point of view of photoinduced changes proceeding during exposure with light having energy close to band gap energy. The attention will be paid also to searching for photostable chalcogenide thin films. Photoinduced effects/photostability will be investigated in order to evaluate influence of chemical composition of the thin films, used deposition method, and deposition conditions. The results of the project will contribute to deepen the fundamental knowledge about photoinduced phenomena in amorphous chalcogenides.
 
 

Analysis and application of plasma assisted processes for the fabrication of amorphous chalcogenide thin films

Provider: Grantová agentura ČR
Programe: Standard projects
Duration: 2013-02-01 – 2015-12-31
Workpkace: Faculty of Chemical Technology
Guarantor: doc. Ing. Petr Němec, Ph.D.
Chalcogenide glasses and thin films are important group of inorganic materials which are suitable for optical and optoelectronic applications, for example materials for optical and electrical memories. In the frame of the project, plasma processes for fabrication of thin films of selected perspective amorphous chalcogenides systems - GeGaS(Se, Te), GeAsSe, GeSbTe, etc. - will be studied. Bulk glasses as well as amorphous thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition will be characterized mainly from the point of view of local structure and optical properties. Plasma formed during interaction of intense laser pulses with chalcogenides will be studied in detail by LDI (laser desorption ionization) time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The results of chemical diagnostics of the plasma will be correlated with the structure and properties of starting bulk glasses and thin films. The results will be further used for the prognosis of synthesis of new materials and for the study and simulation of deposition processes.
