In November 2000 Polish State Committee for Scientific Research (KBN)
launched a Targeted Research Project: "Metallic, Ceramic and Organic
Nanomaterials: Processing - Structure - Properties - Applications".
The structural materials, covered by the project, comprise Al - based
glass ceramics, Fe alloys, ceramic matrix nanocomposites, gradient
materials as well as polymer matrix nanocomposites. Among functional
materials giant and colossal magnetoresistance, light emitting and
spectroscopic materials, soft and hard magnetic materials and
nanomaterials for batteries are studied. Novel methods of processing
and compacting of nanomaterials are also researched. Basic phenomena
such as mechanics of superplastic deformation of ceramics,
demagnetisation processes in ferromagnetic nanomaterials, transport
processes in ionic conductivity materials are investigated.
Overview of the main research direction and achievements of the
project are presented.
