Atomic Design of Carbon-Based Materials for New Normal Society

Atómová koncepcia materiálov na báze uhlíka pre novú normálnu spoločnosť

Duration: 1.11.2021 - 30.10.2024
Program: Multilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Scholtzová Eva CSc.
Annotation:The expression “New Normal'' has been used for marking economic/societal goals after the 2008 financial crisis. Nowadays, this term is used for emerging lifestyles at the end of the COVID19 pandemic. Our proposed work relates to the “New Normal Society” by means of contributing to the creation of an upgraded, human-centred society (Japanese “Society 5.0”), where new technologies serve sustainable developments, mitigate the threat of future pandemics, and are devoted to human welfare. We aim to contribute to the worldwide target via the development of advanced carbon-based materials (CBMs). CBMs are key in everyday applications and devices: batteries, power generators, energy converters, mobile devices, structural materials, environmental filters, health care, and medical products. The Consortium is formed from representatives of three continents: each V4 country, Japan, and Canada. Our collective scientific power is focused on advanced CBM target materials by adhering to the concept of “atomic design”, which has been challenging to achieve for C-materials with disordered/amorphous framework. Our integrated work packages will be executed by experts in synthesis, analysis, and theory giving credibility to the deployment of the concept of "atomic design" for CBMs. The Consortium directly addresses the Joint Call for developing advanced materials for extreme environments, electronics and energy harvesting, such as gas storage, flexible electrode/supercapacitors/conductive thin-layers, microelectronics, and optically active materials with high voltage/structure stability. The unique mechanical properties of porous CBMs and our combined engineering expertise allow for targeting COVID19-related material design, such as anti-virus filters.

Sodium-Ion and sodium Metal Batteries for efficient and sustainable next-generation energy storage

Sodík-iónové a sodík-kovové batérie novej generácie pre efektívne a udržateľné uskladnenie energie

Duration: 1.1.2021 - 31.12.2024
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: doc. Ing. Lenčéš Zoltán PhD.
Annotation:Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Slovak Academy of Sciences is participating in the SIMBA project “Sodium-Ion and sodium Metal BAtteries for efficient and sustainable next-generation energy storage” under the grant agreement 963542 has started on the 1st of January 2021. The Kick-off meeting took place online and headstarted a highly ambitious project to develop sustainable and safe batteries to store renewable energy. The SIMBA project has the concrete goal of delivering a safe and low-cost all-solid-state-sodium battery technology for stationary application. Reducing the use of critical materials is the core of SIMBA, which will employ sustainable battery materials, reducing supply risks and restrictions and environmental impact, which are instead currently affecting other technologies, i.e. Lithium-ion batteries. The unprecedented concept of SIMBA is based on the integration of a sodium metal anode in a sodium free assembly architecture including a highly porous support on the anode side, a single-ion conductive composite/hybrid polymer electrolyte and an innovative cathode material. SIMBA gathers a consortium of 16 partners from 6 EU and associated countries having received a funding from the European Commission of 8M €. For more information, please contact the coordinator of the project, Prof. Ralf Riedel: ralf.riedel@tu-darmstadt.de This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 963542

Development of functionally graded silicon nitride with improved bioactivity

Project leader: doc. Ing. Hnatko Miroslav PhD.

Development of new joining methods for high entropy ceramics

Vývoj nových metód spájania vysoko-entropických keramických materiálov

Duration: 1.7.2022 - 30.6.2025
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Tatarko Peter PhD.
Annotation:The main aim of the proposed project is to develop new joining techniques for high entropy ceramics (HEC) in order to improve the operational limits of the joints for aerospace applications. The project proposes an innovative way of manufacturing of HEC joints with potentially improved high temperature properties, using a direct solid-state diffusion bonding (without an interlayer) or diffusion bonding with refractory metal interlayers. For the first time, refractory high entropy alloys (HEA) will be used as the joining interlayers between a pair of HEC, or as the interlayer for joining of HEC to ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). The project aims to generate new fundamental knowledge on the understanding of the effect of electric field and surface preparation on the direct diffusion bonding of HEC, as well as the interfacial physico-chemical phenomena occurring at the HEC/HEA and HEA/CMCs interfaces. The mechanical performance of the joints at room and high temperatures will be investigated to define the operational limits of the joints. The project will provide a comprehensive insight on the joining of high entropy ceramics for potential aerospace applications. This may significantly expand the application potential of the recently developed next generation ultra-high temperature ceramics, i.e. high entropy ceramics.
