Mathematical method for submolecular resolution of helicene-based macrocycles by atomic force microscopy in air
Ukraintsev, Egor ; Houska, Václav ; Vacek, Jaroslav ; Starý, Ivo ; Stará, Irena G. ; Rezek, B.
We introduce a straightforward mathematical method for improving the AFM image resolution, applied to image analysis of helicene-based macrocycles adsorbed on HOPG. The method reveals structural details from insufficiently resolved AFM images and attributes them to internal structure and ordering of the macrocycles. Our findings are also corroborated by molecular mechanics simulations, validating that the structure provided by the method has lower potential energy compared to other tested macrocycle arrangements.

Adhesion improvement between bitumen and mineral aggregate:theoretical principles and their impact on pavement structure lifetime
Trejbal, J. ; Demo, Pavel ; Nežerka, V. ; Sveshnikov, Alexey ; Valentová, T. ; Valentin, J.
Influence of nanomaterial-based adhesion promoters on maximizing of intermolecular interactions between bitumen and aggregate surfaces was studied. Topological and physico-chemical properties were described and it is shown that presence of promoters increases adhesion about 18%.

CrystalCMP: examples of use
Rohlíček, Jan
The program CrystalCMP can be used for comparison of crystal structures containing separated molecular objects as it is, for instance, in molecular crystals or some metal-organic compounds. The program can be useful in many different situations. This article shows the use of the program CrystalCMP on three basic exam ples for which the program was primarily intended.

Nanopowders of R.sub.2./sub.Fe.sub.14./sub.B-type compounds in high magnetic fields: The effects of substitutional and interstitial atoms on inter-sublattice exchange interaction
Paukov, M. ; Ivanov, L. ; Tereshina, I. ; Tereshina-Chitrova, Evgenia ; Gorbunov, D. ; Andreev, A. V. ; Pyatakov, A.P. ; Granovsky, S.A. ; Doerr, M. ; Drulis, H.
The fundamental magnetic characteristics of R2Fe14B intermetallics are highly sensitive to atomic substitutions and interstitial absorption of light elements. In this work, both were combined, and the influence of the substitutions in the R-sublattice and hydrogen absorption on the magnetization of (RR’) 2Fe14BHx (R is Tm or Er, and R’ is Nd) in magnetic fields up to 58 T was studied. By using direct hydrogen absorption, (R0.5Nd0.5)2Fe14BHx compounds were obtained with hydrogen content 0≤x≤5.5. Magnetic measurements were carried out on nanopowders. The strength of the inter-sublattice coupling in (R0.5Nd0.5)2Fe14B and their hydrides is estimated by analysing high-field magnetization data. It is shown that hydrogenation weakens the inter-sublattice exchange interaction up to 45 %.

Compression of ecaped titanium micro-pillars for two principal orientations
Vokoun, David ; Maňák, Jan ; Tesař, Karel ; Habr, Stanislav
The thermomechanical processing by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) is used for certain metals and alloys in order to make their structure fine and to increase material strength. In the previous study done at our institute, grade 2 titanium was successfully processed using four consecutive route A passes via a 90° ECAP die with high backpressure at room temperature. Orientation dependence of compressive and tensile loading of ECAPed titanium samples was demonstrated at macro-scale. However, scarce attention has been paid so far to the mechanical behavior of ECAPed titanium samples at micro-scale. In the present study, compression experiments on titanium micro-pillars, fabricated using focused ion beam, are carried out for two main directions in respect to preceding ECAP pressing (insert and extrusion directions). The purpose of this study is to discuss the orientation dependence of mechanical response during compression of the as-ECAPed titanium micro-pillars.

ZnMg0.8Ca/Sr0.2 ternary alloys - the influence of the third element on material properties
Čapek, Jaroslav ; Pinc, Jan ; Kubásek, J. ; Molnárová, Orsolya ; Maňák, Jan ; Drahokoupil, Jan
Zinc-based materials alloyed with the elements of the 2nd group of the periodic table have been studied as potential materials for the fabrication of various biodegradable implants. In this study, we prepared two ternary alloys: ZnMg0.8Ca0.2 (wt.%) and ZnMg0.8Sr0.2. The microstructure of both ternary alloys was similar, the main difference was in the size and morphology of the Ca/SrZn13 phase. The SrZn13 phase formed fine particles with a submicron size and had more significant hardening effect in the as-cast state compared to the CaZn13 phase. The annealing led to a transformation of the eutectic structure into the “massive” Mg2Zn11 phase which caused a significant increase of both hardness and compressive yield stress. In the annealed states, comparable hardness was observed for both alloys and higher compressive yield strength for the Ca-containing alloy.

Why monitor acoustic emissions during nanomechanical tests?
Čtvrtlík, Radim ; Václavek, L. ; Tomáštík, J.
Acoustic Emissions (AE) monitoring has been proved as an effective non-destructive technique at the macro scale. Nevertheless, it may also be employed at nano/micro scale during nanomechanical and nanotribological testing. Local mechanical properties of surfaces or micro object are routinely explored using nanoindentation, scratch test or dynamic impact tests that are evaluated based on analysis of depth-load-time records or microscopic observation of residual indents, scratch grooves or impact craters, respectively. Although these approaches have been proven to be sufficient in most cases for a variety of materials, there are many situations where they do not provide sufficient information for a complex understanding of the deformation response. On the other hand, analysis of AE signals generated during these tests may provide valuable complementary information and provide some insight into the dynamics of phenomena like cracking, phase transitions, plastic instabilities, etc.\n
