Advanced Materials Synthesis Group

Research topics conducted in the Advanced Materials Synthesis Group are related to the design and synthesis of inorganic (phosphors, metallic or oxide nanoparticles) and organic compounds with designed physicochemical characteristic, including luminescent, thermochromic, thermal, mechanical as well as antibacterial, electrical or sensing properties.  The group is working on hybrids systems modified and / or doped dyes and nanoparticles for use in photonics and to obtain laser action. Biodegradable polymer and composite materials with functional properties are also developed. An example are the intelligent transport systems of active substances for applications in medicine and cosmetology. The research is also focused on solid state chemistry and processes occurring on the solid and gaseous/liquid phase interfaces. Within the scope are adsorption and catalysis using porous materials, such as layered aluminosilicates and layered double hydroxides, their modification and application in elimination of hazardous substances from air and water. Additionally, the studies on modification of different materials by focused electron beam are conducted in order to achieve desired physicochemical properties for potential application in photonics and electronics. These studies particularly involve micro- and nanostructuring of ionic liquids and their mixtures with other compounds (e.g. metal salts).

What is more, taking advantage of these ions as structural probes using the high resolution spectroscopic tools.

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Kacper-Prokop

The area of ​​interest of the Group includes:

organic dyes, with specific optical properties (e.g. defined spectral regions of absorption and emission) and physicochemical properties (e.g. thermal stability), which can be obtained both by modifying known molecules and by synthesizing new chemical structures. In addition, the Group has knowledge of long-luminescent materials (so-called “glowing in the dark”), the principle of action is to release previously absorbed energy from visible or UV radiation after switching off the light source. We are also interested in biologically active organic compounds with antioxidant, antimicrobial and anticancer properties.

 

 

thermochromic materials, i.e. those that change their color in a reversible or irreversible way after exceeding a certain temperature. The color change may result from the polymerization of reactive monomers, the formation of a leuco dye – developer complex, or the formation of a complex between an organic ligand and a transition metal ion. Materials with a reversible color change can be used as thermometers to provide information on the current temperature. On the other hand, materials with an irreversible color change can be used as indicators of a single exposure to too low or too high temperature.

 

 

– liquid crystalline systems doped with chiral organic salts, in which electrically-induced transport of chiral ionic dopant inside a cell is expected. Goal of the research is induction of local concentration gradient along the depth of the cell, and in the result broadening of the selective light reflection band. The effect may be applied in electrically-driven mirrors and reflective displays. It was found, that in chiral liquid crystalline systems, composed of acid-base pairs, the hydrogen or ionic bond is being formed, depending on the pKadifference between the acid and base.

 

 

 

– preparation and characterization of films with controlled refractive index value, in particular materials synthesized using sol-gel processes and polymeric materials. The aim is to optimize the process of production of films with an appropriate refractive index and thickness, which may enable the use of such materials in integrated optics systems, among others as waveguide layers. The thin films may also be a matrix for luminescent organic dyes.

 

 

 

– fabrication methods of periodic micro- and nanostructures, in particular fabrication of photonic crystals (opals and inversed opals) by synthethic methods and optical holography, e.g. inscription of Surface Relief Gratings (SRG) in azopolymers. Periodic structures may be characterized by such optical properties, as: diffraction, selective light reflection (Bragg reflection). They may be applied among other as light couplers for waveguides, distributed feedback resonator systems for laser action and element of sensors, based on optical properties of the materials.

 

 

micro- and nanostructuring of materials using electron beam. Materials can be modified and, at the same time, patterned with high precision in micro- and nanoscale by selective exposure to the focused electron beam. In this context, ionic liquids are particularly interesting materials as they have unique combination of physicochemical properties such as negligible volatility, ionic conductivity, high thermal and chemical stability. The potential applications of the developed method of electron beam patterning include, for example, fabrication of planar photonic components and new resists for e-beam lithography.

 

 

– porous layered materials, especially aluminosilicates and double hydroxides. Such have special structure giving them unique chemical and physical characteristics that can be modified in order to change their properties and tune the materials according to the application field. The principal interest areas include the synthesis and modifications of materials for the use in adsorption from water and air, catalysis, and  functional composite materials production.

 

 

 

 

System for the synthesis of graphene/ dichalcogenides

– two-dimensional materials, i.e. those with a thickness of one or more atomic layers. These materials have specific electronic and optical properties compared with their three-dimensional counterparts. The Group is particularly interested in the synthesis, transfer and studies on the properties of graphene and dichalcogenides. Graphene, in addition to its excellent electrical properties, also has properties that allow it to be used as an anti-corrosion layer in microelectronic, interconnects or implantable devices. Graphene coatings are highly impermeable to all gases, liquids and aggressive chemicals.Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) for years have attracted great interest in research due to their unique properties such as direct band gap comparing to their bulk samples. Semiconducting TMDCs based on molybdenum and tungsten with band gaps ranging from the visible to the near infra-red possess great application possibilities in flexible electronics, optoelectronics or as nanoscale semiconductors.
