Advanced fibre laser and coherent source as tools for society manufacturing and life science - The surface microstructure modification of steels via the fiber laser
Pokročilý vláknový laser a koherentný zdroj ako nástroje pre spoločnosť, priemyselnú výrobu a vedu o živote - Modifikácia povrchovej mikroštruktúry ocele prostredníctvom vláknového lasera
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Petryshynets Ivan PhD.
Annotation:Among the different types of Lasers, fibre lasers are, both as research and commercially, the youngest, yet the fast growing type of laser due to several factors. This Action will be the first arena where experts in fundamental material science, established laser and component groups, fibre laser manufacturers and end-users will be able to actively interact, share know-how and focus on common goals. We do expect to boost a series of innovations in the field. Among them we aim to cover the 3-6 micron wavelength interval, and beyond, to support mid-infrared applications and to enhance fibre performance to cover more efficiently visible and ultra-violet wavelength generation for biophotonics and healthcare. The Action will also investigate glass material and fibre design to overcome the actual limitation in output power. The improvements will mainly boost healthcare to benefit wide society and EU manufacturing to retain and increase manufacturing workforce within EU. The Action will mentor a new generation of researchers by providing Early Stage Researchers an opportunity to develop both scientific and management skills. At the same time the Action will actively promote gender balance and women researchers to management positions.

Development of novel multifunctional materials for next generation magnetoelectric sensors and data storage devices
Vývoj nových multifunkčných materiálov pre magnetoelektrické senzory a úložiska digitálnych dát budúcej generácie
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: RNDr. Kovaľ Vladimír PhD.
Annotation:The main goal of the proposed project is to establish and develop a scientific cooperation between Slovakia and China in the field of multifunctional materials for advanced applications in microelectronics and spintronics. Joining of the research teams from both countries is motivated not only because of great technological potential of multifunctional materials but also due to the fascinating physics behind their unique properties. Multiferroics, exhibiting simultaneously ferroelectric and magnetic properties, are among the most attractive multifunctional materials. They allow for controlling the magnetic state of multifunctional devices with an external electric field, and vice versa. The main obstacle is, however, the scarcity of multifunctional magnetoelectrics in nature. Currently, single-phase multiferroics are far beyond any practical application, because they only demonstrate useful properties at very low temperatures. Recently, we showed that Aurivillius-type ferroelectrics doped by magnetic atoms can exhibit multiferroic behavior at room temperature. The origin of magnetism and magnetoelectric coupling in these materials, however, still needs a proper interpretation and confirmation from detailed experimental and theoretical studies. Our aim is to combine research on multiferroic materials in Slovakia with activities in China on theoretical modelling of multiferroics to design and prepare single-phase materials with the improved magnetoelectric property at room temperature.

The wear resistance improvement of tool steels surface via the laser hardening in combination with deep cryogenic treatment.
Zlepšenie oteruvzdornosti povrchu nástrojových ocelí pomocou laserového kalenia v kombinácii s hlbokým kryogénnym spracovaním.
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: Mgr. Petryshynets Ivan PhD.
Annotation:The main task of the project is to investigate the effect of laser hardening in combination with deep cryogenic treatment on fracture toughness, wear resistance and load – carrying capacity of subsurface region of cold work tool steel and to analyze the modification of microstructural parameters depending on the tool steel type and chemical composition. The experimental materials will be created with three groups of tool steels which are determined for the cold work. The first group will consist of carbon steel with carbon content up to 0.7 wt%, the second groups will be low-alloy steels, and the third group will be the medium alloy steels. These materials will be treated by recommended conventional heat procedures. Subsequently, the materials will be subjected to the treatment by laser beam in order to melting the surface or heating the surface to the selected temperature of austenite as a function of technological parameters of laser hardening and to deep cryogenic treatment in order to remove residual stresses, achieve the transformation of retained austenite and modify the dislocation structure and carbon distribution in the martensitic solid solution. For each material variations, optimal parameters of laser and cryogenic treatments will be defined in order to improve the main mechanical properties of investigated tool steel.
