Brief presentation of the institution

Interdisciplinary experimental and theoretical researches related to the problems of the construction sector. The main focus is on the chemical physics of constructional materials, durability and security.

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

-Triboplasma, triboelectrification

Electric discharge around a lubricated frictional contact is considered, together with catalytic reactions on the rubbed surfaces, as the main reason for the lubricant degradation abd the origin of various tribochemical reactions. However,  the mechanisms and characteristics of this tribodischarged and triboplasma are poor understood.

- Simulation of electric discharge in highly non-equilibrium conditions between insulating surfaces

- Chemical reactions in organic liquids indusced by electric discharge

Main Plasma with liquids related research techniques and equipment

- Simulation COMSOL

- Experimental system TriDes for tribological and tribophysical characterization of materials in ultrahigh vacuum and under controlled atmosphere

- Electron stimulated desorption, AES, XPS
