In the paper is presented a comparison of physical parameters of alumina template made by use of one (simplified) and two-step anodisation. The analyze was taken on the electrical parameters of anodisation circuits of both of the technologies and the visualization of surface was carried on by means of FE-SEM microscope.

At present the three basic directions of research on the development of organic photovoltaics are: (i) synthesis of new polymers and small-molecular compounds in an active layer of solar cells, (ii) modification of the architecture of solar cells and (iii) perfecting of methods of processing of' each of the layers of solar cell. The highest value of the power conversion efficiency being obtained in IEL Wrocław reaches the level of 2.4% for the bulk heterojunction polymer solar cell.

The paper is a literature review concerning polymer fuel cells. In the first part the structure, principle of operation and types of fuel cells (FC) are discussed. In-situ techniques used for evaluation of FC parameters in a single cell or assembled stacks, such as current-voltage characteristics (polarization curve), current interruption method, cyclic and linear sweep voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, cathode discharge and current mapping are presented. The mechanism of operation and functions of fuel cell components are discussed in details using the example of PEMFC (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane or Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells). Two types of PEMFC are distinguished, i.e. HT (High Temperature) and LT (Low Temperature) indicating the advantages of high-temperature operation. The second part of this review is related to different kinds of polymers used in fuel cells and describes practical applications of polymer fuel cells.

Low-d. polyethylene was reinforced with com. modified nanosize montmorillonite (5% by mass) by extrusion and pressed to test samples studied for structure and dielec. properties. The elec. resistivity of the composites was lower while the loss tangent was higher than those of original polyethylene.

The paper discusses current state of research related to polymeric dielectric materials in which surface displays biomorphic characteristics i.e. it imitates - desirable from scientific and technological point of view - features of living organisms or natural materials. Special attention is paid to superhydrophobic materials displaying "lotus effect". The concise literature review is illustrated with results of experiments aimed at obtaining (by means of acrylic model replica method) HTV silicone rubber with surface displaying "lotus effect".

The subject of this invention is a method of synthesis of of hybrid compounds of polyaniline and application of hybrid compounds of polyaniline.

The subject of the invention is a method of producing magnetic nanowires to be used particularly in the production of computer memory media. The method consists in the fact that a ferromagnetic raw material which is ground to nanometric particles is placed near a source of the magnetic field and subjected to the influence of an inhomogeneous magnetic field which produces magnetostatic force of the following value: F = m + m + m where: m constitute component values of the magnetic moment vector of nanometric particles, whereas B are component values of the magnetic flux density vector and then under the influence of this force, on the substrate made of a non-magnetic material, nanometric particles are concentrated in the places of the greatest flux density gradients, thus forming islands which grow in an anisotropic way along the lines of the magnetic field force and produce nanowires.
