Analysis of locally modified surfaces for selective growth of cobalt
Krajňák, Tomáš ; Bábor, Petr (referee) ; Čechal, Jan (advisor)
In this thesis the chemical composition of silicon substrates locally modified by focused gallium ion beam by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is determined. In order to determine the influence of focused ion beam, the sample comprising sputtered square areas with nominal depths in range of 1 to 10 nm was prepared. Next, the sample was heated to elevated temperatures (500 - 700 °C) to reveal changes in the sputtered areas induced by annealing. In this work by X-ray photoelectron spectrometer Kratos Supra and electron microscope Tescan LYRA3 with focused ion beam were used. From the measured spectra of the Si 2p and Ga 2p3/2 peaks measured as a function of nominal sputtering depth and annealing temperature the following main observations were obtained. First, there is the additional peak component in the Si 2p peak, which can be assigned to the amorphous silicon. The second important finding is that gallium can be removed from near surface volume by annealing at temperatures beyond 700 °C.
The circulation of cobalt in the environment
Charuza, Martin ; Mládková, Zuzana (referee) ; Sommer, Lumír (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with importance of cobalt in the environment, especially as a component of B12 vitamin. Vitamin B12 is a complex, that is necessary for proper formation of blood corpuscules and DNA, except that affects many others procesess in the body. Cobalt forms many complex compounds, which are discussed in this work. The most common oxidation number in compounds are +II and +III. The second part describes spectrophotometric determination of cobalt with suitable reagents. There are a lot of spectrophotmetric reagents for cobalt determination in a sample. The most widely used spectrophotometric reagents for determination of cobalt are 4-(2-pyridylazo)resorcinol (PAR), 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphtol (PAN), 2-(5-Brom-2-pyridylazo)-5-diethylaminophenol (5-Brom-PADAP), 4-(2-thiazolylazo)resorcinol (TAR) a 2-(2-thiazolylazo)-4-methoxyphenol (TAMP). All of theese reagents are heterocyclic azodyes. Cobalt is bonded on this azodyes by coordination covalent bond and forms stable complex.
Ellipsometry of Thin Films
Novotný, Zbyněk ; Navrátil, Karel (referee) ; Nebojsa, Alois (advisor)
Diploma thesis deals with ageing process of thin films of Co and Cu on Si substrate, prepared by the IBAD method. The process of film ageing, which depends on time of exposition to the atmosphere at room conditions, was investigated with spectroscopic ellipsometry (VIS+UV) and atomic force microscopy. In case of thin Co films, approximately four days long incubation period was observed. During this time period, a change in the optical parameters of the film occurs without a measurable change of the film topography. Using non-contact atomic force microscopy, a growth of the transitional film in the island growth regime was observed. During the ageing of thin Cu films, two stages of growth of the transitional layer were observed - nucleation stage and growth stage. Both of these time periods of the transitional layer growth show direct logarithmic dependence. Using non-contact atomic force microscopy, the growth of the transitional film was observed. Using atomic force microscopy in non-contact regime, time dependent measurement was done and the process of forming of one monolayer of the transitional layer was documented. Within the diploma thesis, a series of experiments on ultra high vacuum system were performed in order to investigate phase transformation of thin Fe films (22 monolayers) on Cu(100) stabilized by CO absorption. The transformation from fcc phase to bcc phase was induced by Ar+ ion beam bombardment with the ion energy in the range (0.5-4) keV. The process of phase transformation was observed by surface magneto-optic Kerr effect, Auger electron spectroscopy and low energy electron diffraction.
Epitaxial growth of cobalt islands via oxide mediated epitaxy
Stará, Veronika ; Kolíbal, Miroslav (referee) ; Čechal, Jan (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with preparation, growth and analysis of cobalt thin films. The films are formed on silicon (111) samples covered with a thin layer of native oxide SiO2. Cobalt thin films were prepared using oxide mediated epitaxy method with the effusion cell as a source of cobalt atoms. Composition and morphology of the resulting Co system was studied as a function of the annealing temperature. Another goal of this research was to determine the dependence of the final island shape on the amount of deposited material and substrate orientation. The prepared structures were analyzed using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. To determine the thickness of subsurface islands the samples were etched in buffered hydrofluoric acid and analyzed using above mentioned methods.

Janíčková, Vlasta ; Kalina, Lukáš (referee) ; Koplík, Jan (advisor)
The work deals with the determination and comparison of leaching of heavy metals from two types of alkali activated systems based on blast furnace slag and high-temperature fly ash. These systems are capable in their structure encapsulate heavy metals, toxic substances or radioactive substances, which can be harmful for the environment. The aim of this work is to prepare a mixture with acceptable mechanical properties. Leachibility from matrix was tested according to ČSN EN 12457–4, followed by analyses Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES). Structure of matrix was analysed using Scanning electron microscope (SEM).

Deposition of magnetic nanostructures using EBID and optimalization of their chemical composition and morphology
Vyroubal, Ondřej ; Kolíbalová, Eva (referee) ; Kolíbal, Miroslav (advisor)
This master's thesis deals with deposition of cobalt nanostructures using Electron Beam Induced Depositon (EBID). The thesis firstly describes theoretical background regarding EBID. In the following experimental part, the deposition process is optimized via analysis of exposition parameters and their influence on the final shape of nanostructures. These are analyzed via Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Optimized exposure parameters are then applied to the deposition of functional 3-dimensional nanostrucutres. In particular, the deposition of cobalt spheres. The elemental composition is analyzed by the means of element composition using Energy-dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX) and the nanostructures of desired morphologies are studied with Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM) and Magneto-Optical Kerr Microscope).
Cobalt alloys and their weld ability
Herčík, Tomáš ; Mrňa, Libor (referee) ; Sigmund, Marian (advisor)
The bachelor thesis is focused on the evaluation of the current state of use of cobalt and cobalt alloys. Due to its shortage and the growing need for precious metal for the production of Li-on batteries, its price, which is now almost at silver prices, is also rising. Some countries even described it as critical and they have bought it in large quantities. From 2020, it is expected that all cobalt will be reserved for the automotive industry, where the use of cobalt in batteries increases their capacity. It is therefore time to look for ways in which precious metal is economised in existing applications. This also includes welding. Of the existing welding technologies, laser welding looks to be the best. In this case no additional material is needed which reduces the need for cobalt. This technology was verified in the experimental part and evaluated by destructive tests (microhardness, microstructure, macrostructure).
