The improvement of felting properties of animal fibres with the help of atmospheric-pressure plasma treatment

Project code: TA01011356/2011

Period: 1/2011 - 12/2013

Cooperating Organization: TONAK a.s.

MU Investigator:Prof. RNDr. Mirko Černák, CSc.

About project:

Improving seed germination by means of low-temperature plasma

Project code: TA02010412

Period: 1/2012 - 12/2014

Cooperating Organization: SEMO a.s.

MU Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Mgr. Pavel Slavíček, Ph.D.

About project:

The project aim is improve the germination of seeds, destruction of pathogens on surface seeds (fungi, viruses, bacteria) and reduce the amount of chemicals used in the production of seeds and in the growth of plants. This will be achieved using equipment based on plasma barrier discharge at atmospheric pressure. Another objective is evaluate the effectiveness of plasma processing and economic advantages of this method for industrial application on the seeds produced by SEMO (eg seeds of lettuce, parsley, tomatoes, carrots). A parallel goal of the project is applied research of new method of treatment of seeds based on diaphragm discharge in water dispersion of seeds.

Investigation of hybrid PVD-PECVD process used for preparation of nanostructured composite

Project code: GAP205/12/0407

Period: 1/2012 - 12/2015

MU Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Mgr. Petr Vašina, Ph.D.

About project:

This project focuses on investigation of the behaviour of hybrid PVD-PECVD process, which will be used for preparation of nanostructured composite n-MC/a-C(:H) materials. The main goal of this project is to understand a relationship between process parameters and parameters of deposition plasma, which actually govern plasma processes and plasma-surface interaction. To signicantly enhance the ion bombardement of the growing film, the magnetron cathode will be driven by high power pulses (HIPIMS), too. Within the frame of this work,we will focus also on two mutually interconnected subjects: on the characterisation of the mechanical properties of prepared coating/substrate systems with the aim to optimize the deposition process and on the enhancement of the evaluation methods for characterisation of layered nanostructured lms. Beside deposition on laboratory samples, the deposition of the coating on industrial cutting tools and test of the cutting performance will be performed, too.
