Research and Development
Junior researchers (Masters and PhD students, Postdoctoral researchers)
The National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics (NICPB) is asked to do following research: (i) to induce magnetic and multiferroic behavior into nonmagnetic materials; (ii) to
characterize ceramic high-TC films and pellets and study their vortex structure; (iii) to do research of prototype solid oxide fuel cell stack components; (iv) to investigate cantilever based novel
The goal is to improve research infrastructure for materials’ research and to extend training opportunities for students and junior researchers in experimental techniques for materials research.
The project envisages the following activities: (i) procurement of the AFM/MFM equipment; (ii) selection of the applicants for AFM/MFM training; (iii) preparation of the facility according to requirements and installation of the system; and (iv) user trainings on AFM/MFM.
