Title: Raman spectroscopic studies of Polymer Derived Ceramics in the form of protective coatings for SOFCs’ interconnects

April 20th 2021 at 1:00 PM CET (13:00 GMT+1)

Speaker: Maciej Bik MSc. Eng. (AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow/ AGHAkademia Górniczo-Hutnicza w Krakowie)

Maciej Bik graduated from Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics at AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow with honors as M.Sc. of Materials Science (specialization: Functional Materials). Currently he is finishing his PhD (“Black glasses as protective coatings for heat-resistant alloys in high-temperature corrosion conditions) under the supervision of Prof. Maciej Sitarz. During his research, M.Sc. Eng. Maciej Bik focuses on the application of Polymer Derived Ceramics (PDCs) from SiOC and SiAlOC systems in the form of protective layers on different types of metallic substrates (i.e. stainless steels such as Crofer 22APU or Cr, TiAl and FeAl alloys) and the investigation of high-temperature corrosion phenomena using novel combination of spectroscopic studies, such as Fourier Transformed Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy and Confocal Raman Imaging. Until now, M.Sc. Eng.

Maciej Bik participates in numerous internships i.e. in Dispersive Solids Group at Technical University of Darmstadt (thermal studies of PDCs under supervision of Prof. Ralf Riedel) and in High Temperature Materials Group (application of coatings based on SiAlOC glasses on different metallic substrates i.e. Cr and TiAl alloys, under the supervision of Prof. Mathias Galetz). During his scientific career, M.Sc. Eng. Maciej Bik received abundant projects (Project leader of Diamond Grant from Ministry of Science and Higher Education in 2017 and ETIUDA from National Science Centre in 2020) as well as participated in others (Contractor i.e. in OPUS projects from National Science Centre).

He is an author or co-author of 11 publications (H-index = 4), as well as speaker at 10 international conferences all over the world. His scientific activities and achievements have been awarded with a Scholarship of Minister of Science and Higher Education for scientific achievements (2016) and young talented scientists (2020), as well as Scholarship “START 2020” of Foundation for Polish Science.
