Carbon structures and steels

contact person: prof. RNDr. Miroslav Mašláň, CSc.

The group researches and develops surface treatments of steels mainly by thermal annealing and the synthesis of carbon nanostructures (CNT) prepared by chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The group also researches structural and phase modifications of steels and structural materials due to various stresses, e.g. temperature. The group uses advanced analytical (SEM, XRD) and nuclear analytical techniques (Mössbauer spectroscopy, CEMS, CXMS, positron annihilation) for its research.

The aim of the work is to prevent corrosion or cavitation degradation of steel parts in pumping equipment by surface treatment of the material.


Iron based nanomaterials

contact person: doc. RNDr. Libor Machala, Ph.D.

The group focuses on the synthesis and characterization of iron oxide and ferrite nanoparticles. In cooperation mainly with foreign partners, nanoparticles of iron oxides and ferrites are tested as photocatalysts for the degradation of pollutants, e.g. the insecticide methomyl, the pharmaceutical acetaminophen, etc. Another direction of research is the optimization of ferrates(VI) synthesis and their application in the oxidative degradation of pollutants in water (e.g. estrogens). Assoc. Prof. Libor Machala, in collaboration with other staff of the Department of Experimental Physics and the Science and Technology Park of Palacký University Olomouc, is engaged in commercial contracts focused on Mössbauer characterization of iron-containing pharmaceuticals (e.g. iron sucrose, ferric carboxymaltose). The key experimental method for the characterization of the above mentioned iron-containing (nano)materials is 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, which is fully available at the Department of Experimental Physics in several modifications. Research of the group of Assoc. Prof. Machala is conducted in collaboration with several foreign institutions, e.g. ELTE University Budapest, Hungary (Prof. Homonnay, Prof. Kuzmann), Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan (Prof. Kubuki), INHA University, Korea (Assoc. Prof. Han).
