Exploration of the Fe-W-O system for magnetism and photo(electro) chemistry

Sedmidubský David, prof. Dr. Ing. ( sed...@vscht.cz)
The aim of this study is to capitalize on the richness of the crystalline, magnetic and electronic structures and photocatalytic properties of W-based oxides by investigating the Fe-W-O system. It is proposed to focus on Fe2WO6 as it crystallizes in three different structures exhibiting different transport and magnetic properties. It is of interest to study the thermodynamic conditions in this area of the ternary diagram Fe-W-O to monitor and optimize precise composition and synthesis conditions. Structures and microstructures will be studied by suitable diffraction methods and microscopies. Compounds will be characterized by measuring their magnetic and electrical properties; those with suitable bandgap will also be tested for photocatalytic or photoelectrochemical properties relevant to catalytic degradation of organic pollutants, water splitting or photovoltaic cells.

Misfit cobaltites for high-temperature thermoelectric conversion – the role of phase composition and oxygen stoichiometry

Jankovský Ondřej, Doc. Ing. Ph.D. ( Ond...@vscht.cz)
The aim of this work is the synthesis and characterization of cobalt mixed oxides, thermodynamic data measurement and assessments in the Bi-Ca-Co-O, Ca-Co-O and Bi-Sr-Co-O systems. Measurement of thermoelectric properties of the Bi1.8(Ca/Sr)2Co1.85Oz misfit phase including their dependence on variable oxygen stoichiometry as a function of temperature and oxygen activity will be also studied.

Nanostructured ferrited doped with magnetic elements to enhance their magnetocaloric effect

Nádherný Ladislav, Ing. Ph.D. ( Lad...@vscht.cz)
Magnetic refrigeration is a modern and ecologic cooling technology based on the magnetocaloric effect (MCE). This technique can be used to attain extremely low temperatures, as well as the ranges used in common refrigerators. The main aim of this thesis is to enhance the magnetocaloric effect in FeCo ferrites by nanosizing and doping with magnetic ions, which both can affect magnetic phase transition near room temperature. Studied materials will be prepared by wet-chemistry methods (e.g. sol-gel, co-precipitation) and MCE will be characterized in PPMS in which the heat capacity will be measured in a strong magnetic field.

Transparent ceramics for optical applications synthetized by pressure- or vacuum-assisted sintering methods

Rubešová Kateřina, doc. Ing. Ph.D. ( kat...@vscht.cz)
Transparent ceramics can compete with single crystalline materials not only in the stage of research and development but also in the final application. The thesis will be focused on the synthesis of oxide ceramics applicable in the laser or LED field, or utilizable at the detection of ionizing radiation. Spark plasma sintering (SPS) or vacuum sintering will be used for the processing of precursor powders whose optimal crystallinity and microstructure will be also the task of the thesis.
