Increasingly, Na-ion batteries have generated a lot of interest over the years due to their low production costs and the ease of obtaining raw materials, among other things. Unfortunately, because of their poor durability and unsatisfactory electrochemical capacity, they are still not seen as a reliable alternative to the most popular and expensive lithium-ion cells.  Researchers at WUT are working on solving this problem. Their project is being implemented under ENERGYTECH-1 research grant.

‘Every working team has an assigned moderator or moderators of process management for the preparation of a process sheet (...). Moderators meet the working teams regularly – once a week. In the case of more extensive processes, those are meetings lasting a few hours and taking place a few times per week. After completing work, the working teams present their results during the meeting of the Steering Committee for EDMS,’ says Professor Agnieszka Bitkowska, chairperson of the Team for Process Management. Below you will find an interview presenting another aspect of work on the implementation of the electronic document management system at WUT.

It seems that we know everything about melting crystalline materials since it is one of the most frequently occurring phase changes involving transitioning from a solid into a liquid. However, that is not the case. WUT researchers are working on thorough research on the mechanisms of a crystalline-liquid phase transition.

We are at the final stage of the testing system implementation, and we are preparing formal and legal regulations. (...) At the same time, we are designing the processes on which four project teams are working. This is a huge amount of work, a huge milestone. No one has ever dealt with that so methodically before - says Gabriel Matus, Head of the EDMS project.

Electronic document management at WUT – an interview with Dr Katarzyna Modrzejewska

Published: 26/04/2021

40 people are directly involved in the project and indirectly much more - over 100.

“The completion is planned for 2025. In the next few years, subsequent processes will be implemented into the electronic document management system (EDMS) in individual stages. The implementation will be gradual, and the first stage will be completed in autumn 2021 in the new academic year,” says Dr Katarzyna Modrzejewska from a management team of the IDUB (“Excellence Initiative – Research University” project) project and the Steering Committee for EDMS. How is the work on the implementation progressing and what does it involve? Read the interview to find out.

In search of new methods of creating composites

Published: 26/04/2021

For the SiC with the 2.5 wt% and 3 wt% of Ti3C2 flakes of much higher thickness can be observed.

One of the biggest defects of silicon carbide, which is a high-toughness material utilised in the machine tool industry, among other things, is its low fracture toughness. Most frequently, composites with silicon carbide matrix are produced to solve this problem. Unfortunately, most materials utilised as strengthening (composites) and increasing fracture toughness simultaneously negatively affect other properties of silicon carbide, including its toughness and maximum temperature of material work. The work on finding an ideal solution to this problem is continuing.

The interaction of light and matter is one of the most fascinating processes occurring in nature. Chemistry and physics of photoactive compounds are the fields in which these phenomena are particularly interesting. A team of scientists at the Faculty of Chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology is working on a new concept of designing effective photosensitisers whose main role is to produce reactive oxygen forms to be eventually used in the process of water purification and in medicine. 

The NA61/SHINE experiment – the success of Polish scientists in an international project

Published: 09/03/2021


The physics of heavy ion collisions is a field that aims at learning about the character of the strong force.  Since it is impossible to isolate a single colour particle, describing a phase diagram of strong interactions of matter has become a priority. A single experimental measurement is not sufficient to define such a structure. Hence, it is necessary to conduct various analyses in many fields in which each field provides a part of the answer. WUT researchers are making a great contribution to the conducted research.
