Institute of Materials Science

Faculty of Computer Science and Materials Science

The main aim of the carried out research is searching for and interpreting the interdependencies and connections between real structure, chemical composition of a material and their construction and functional properties. This research combines both cognitive and application aspects. The main fields of the research activities cover:

  • searching of new materials including shape memory alloys, amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys, intermatalic compounds, nickel superalloys, composite materials, 
  • phase transitions, real structure and usage properties of metals, ceramics and polimers, 
  • examinations of structure and materials properties including surface properties (metals, biomaterials), 
  • some electrochemical processes, materials for electrodes, methods of fabrications and studying of coating materials, surface propertiues, 
  • development and improvement of methods for material studies - in particular i) high resolution transmision electron microscopy, ii) diffraction of convergent beam, iii) X-ray structure analysis with the use of the Ritveld method, iv) methods of examinations of electronic structure, v) methods of electrochemistry, 
  • computer modeling of materials properties.

The teaching process of the institute is mainly associated with materials science and it is realized via education courses, such as materials engineering with specialty materials science, biomedical engineering and IT education.
