Based on the recommendation of the Polish-Slovak committee that selected the applications, the Director of NAWA (the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange) decided to fund the proposal "Nanostructured Amorphous Arseno-Selenides na-As-Se: on the way to a great challenge in modern science and engineering of nanocomposite materials". This project is aimed at solving the current problem of material environments for modern photonics, optoelectronics, biomedicine on the basis of a new family of materials – amorphous nano-arsenoselenide compounds na-As-Se activated by high-energy milling. The project is planned to be carried out in cooperation with the Slovak partner – the research team of the SAS Institute of Geotechnics, Košice (project coordinator Dr. Zdenka Lukáčová Bujňáková), which will be involved in solving the technological challenges related to the synthesis of nano-arsenoselenides. On the other hand, a research team from Jan DLugosz University in Czestochowa (project coordinator Prof. Oleh Shpotyuk) will take part in the quantum-chemical modeling of the structure of these materials using authorised program code, and their characterisation using the methods of classical amorphography and spectroscopy of annihilating positrons in the original development known as Positronics.
In the effective implementation of the basic tasks of this project, a new direction in modern materials physics opens up – predicted, guided and reproducible nanomaterial multifunctionality.
