Scientists at WUT continue research on optical fibre photonic systems based on liquid crystals

Published: 10/11/2021

A scheme of molecular order of cubic structures corresponding with elementary cells of blue phases BP I and BP II.

At present, from the perspective of optical fibre communications, we need further progress in eliminating certain defects of photonic systems under research, such as insufficiently quick response time to the external electric field (tens of milliseconds) and the necessity to use high steering voltage due to a big diameter of the photonic optical fibre (hundreds of volts). Scientists at WUT are working on solving these problems. Their research project is implemented as part of the FOTECH-2 research grant funded within the programme ‘Excellence Initiative – Research University’ implemented at the Warsaw University of Technology.

Researchers at WUT continue research on sodium-ion batteries

A high magnification (100 kX) SEM photo of a nano-crystallised sample with considerably improved electrical conductivity.

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.
