Recent important scientific work is focused (but not limited) to: the use of non-linear impedance measurements in corrosion research, in particular to the development of the instantaneous impedance spectra measurements (DEIS) and the impedance microscopy, the use of electrochemical harmonic spectroscopy in corrosion research. Department staff have been repeatedly awarded with research prizes or scholarships by the highest central and provincial authorities, as well as the Rector of GUT.
The research activities carried out by the staff of our Department include in particular: electrochemical processes, the fundamentals of corrosion and corrosion protection, materials engineering, physical-chemistry of surfaces. The Department of Electrochemistry, Corrosion and Materials Engineering implemented a number of courses related to the fundamental research as well as technical and technological implementations. The main areas of scientific activity are: studies of the mechanism and kinetics of corrosion processes, the application of modern electrochemical techniques in corrosion research, monitoring and diagnosis of corrosion processes, electrochemical studies and selection in terms of corrosion resistance of new materials, coating technologies, corrosion inhibitors, the role of microstructure in the initiation of corrosion processes
Department provide a broad service activities in the field of fundamental research, offering access to the scientific and research equipment of the highest class. Department is equipped with modern tools of surface analysis, both in nanoscale and macro level: SEM, AFM, STM microscopes, spectroscopic techniques such as XPS, AES, UPS, EDX, Raman, ellipsometry. Department is also equipped with the latest potentiostats / galvanostats of reputable companies AUTOLAB and Gamry.
