Research

Areas of research: composites, polymers, nanomaterials, intelligent materials. The main area of interest is research of composite materials in the description of the relationship between manufacturing parameters and microstructure and properties.

The main topics of research are:

  • the possibility of increasing electrical and thermal conductivity of nanocomposites and polymer matrix composites reinforced with carbon fibers by using conductive nanofillers, mainly carbon nanotubes,
  • evaluation of the relationship between surface area of the interface and the ability of ceramic-elastomer composites with phase percolation to absorb impact energy,
  • effect of the microstructure on the magnetorheological effect in magnetorheological elastomers and the possibility of their application for active damping of vibration,
  • the possibility of using fiber optic sensors to measure deformations in polymer matrix composites,
  • self-healing of damage in composites with the system of microcapsules.
