Institute presentation

Mission of the MTA EK is interdisciplinary research on complex functional materials and nanometer-scale structures, exploration of physical, chemical, and biological principles, their exploitation in integrated micro- and nanosystems, and in the development of characterization techniques (www.energia.mta.hu).

Physical, microstructural & mechanical characterization facilities for endoprotheses, available with the Hungarian collaborator, include, tensile/loading machine equipped by a data acquisition system for measuring bend strength, modulus of elasticity or the complete strain strength curve, hardness tester, polishing machines, vacuum ovens, sonication unit & a well equipped chemical laboratory (electrospraying, electrospinning). Relevant centralized characterization facilities include XRD, SEM with EDS, focused ion beam (FIB), AFM. Other central facilities are available, including: TEM with EDS, HRTEM with EELS, Auger/XPS,  Raman spectroscopy. Projects relevant to the topic of present application supported by Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA/NKIFH): Biocompatible ceramic matrix nanocomposites: preparation and investigation (2008-2012), Structure evolution and biological properties of biogenic nanosized hydroxyapatite-based composites (2012-2015), Development and characterization of carbon-titanium thin films (2011-2014).

 

Katalin Balázsi, deputy head of Thin Film Physics Department, is PI in 4 projects related to protective, hard and biocompatible Ti based coatings. She as participant in EU FP5, FP6 has relevant expertise in TEM, HREM, EELS and EDS analyses. She has 65 publications, IC 350, H-index 10. Csaba Balázsi, Scientific Advisor, material scientist, has outstanding expertise in biomaterials processing. He is PI of several national (OTKA, NKTH) and international projects (NATO, NSF, ESA, COST) in the scientific area of development of novel bioactive ceramics. He has 173 publications, IC 1200, H-index 20. Nikolett Oláh, PhD student, is an expert in processing and characterization of ceramic nanocomposites. She is author and co-author of several articles. One PhD student for CaP fiber and coating preparation, in manufacturing technologies, e.g. rapid prototyping of biopolymer scaffolds. Zsolt  Fogarassy, postdoc, is an expert in analytical testings by AFM, TEM, SEM-FIB. He is participant in several projects in this field. János Szívós, PhD student is an expert in processing and mechanical characterization of ceramic nanocomposites. Attila Sulyok, senior scientist, has expertise in determination of chemical properties of materials by AES and XPS. Viktor Varga, Andor Kovács, Tamás Zagyva technicians, have expertise in mechanochemical processing and powder technology.
