Work package description
Work package number and title: WP3 Training of young scientists in advanced spectroscopic techniques applicable for studies of novel materials- collaboration with European Centres.


The main objectives of this package are:

  • to attract young scientists to advanced characterization techniques of materials and broaden their knowledge in high resolution spectroscopy,
  • training of young scientists in highly specialised experimental techniques,
  • closer collaboration with European centres and exchange of young scientists.
Description of the contents:

The Centre in the Institute of Physics is very well equipped with experimental facilities, for modern materials characterization. One of the most effective way of using the potential of our institute is, apart of performing own research, training of students giving them an opportunity to become familiar with the most advanced experimental techniques, applicable in basic research, characterization of novel materials and in environmental studies. Training in advanced spectroscopic techniques which involve i.e. interaction of electromagnetic field (optical, microwaves), or studies of materials properties under hydrostatic or uniaxial pressure, is important not only for better understanding of the laws of nature, but also for deeper insight into the nature of novel materials and their amazing properties. Training in this methods is also part of process of creating personal careers of students either directly in basic science, designing new high-tech devices and unique diagnostic methods for applications in many areas of human life, biology, medicine and many others. Young scientists and students will be trained in a package of advanced spectroscopic techniques, which include:

  1. a package of optical methods, such as Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy both in absorption and luminescence mode, photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy, magnetospectroscopy,
  2. Deep level transient spectroscopy in their most advanced versions - Laplace transform DLTS and DLTS under uniaxial pressure,
  3. a package of spin dependent resonance methods ODMR and ODCR (40 and 65 GHz),
  4. a package of techniques fro studying molecular an chaotic systems in supersonic expansion, matrix isolation, polarization labelling.
Persons responsible in the Centre: Profs. Adrian Kozanecki, Andrzej Suchocki, Leszek Sirko.
