Abstract: In this contribution, the effect of the extrusion process of the poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene) (PVDF-co-HFP) with the subsequent elongation/poling on its structural and dielectric properties is presented. The extrusion can be understood as continuous processing of polymer melts in the large scale (in comparison to solvent casting), when the thickness of the final product can be varied depending on the final operation conditions.

Abstract: This review paper focuses on semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) embedded inside semiconductor heterostructures prepared by Metalorganic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE) technology and based on our contribution in [1]. Semiconductor direct-bandgap materials have much higher energy conversion efficiency than the light emission from atoms/molecules in a glass matrix or from most other light sources, but they have a broad band or multimode light emission spectra.

Abstract: The main scope of work is to verify the possibility of production diverse fibres, which have different fineness and are produced simultaneously on one electrode. In the first phase of the research, a basic design of the geometry of the two-stage electrode was performed and subsequently, using FEM software, an analysis was performed to determine the electrical field at the individual stages of the electrode.

Abstract: The increasing emphasis on human health and safety presupposes, among other things, the development of new safety technologies and aids that should protect people in high-risk occupations, such as firefighters, soldiers, paramedics, chemical plant workers or researchers themselves. One of the most common type of protective equipment is protective clothing. [..] Read more

Abstract: Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are an emerging class of crystalline networks that are covalently built from organic components and featured by merits of low density, well-defined pore aperture, large surface area, inherent porosity, facilely tailored functionality, and ordered channel structure. Among other applications, COF compounds can be utilized for CO2 detection. [..] Read more

Abstract: Electrospun nanofiber seems interesting in the filter domain area due to its highly porous structure, narrow pore size, and high specific surface area. In this work, polyamide 6 (PA6), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers were prepared as hybrid membranes. [..] Read more

Abstract: Synthetic crystalline materials of the garnet group are used as scintillators in scanning electron microscopy. If a thick conductive layer is applied on the garnet surface, slower electrons don’t have enough energy to pass through this relatively thick conductive layer on the scintillator surface.
