Our team members (J. Ignaczak, B. Lemieszek, and K. Lankauf) have just finished a measurement session at the National Synchrotron Radiation Centre at the XAS beamline (beamtime number 212054).
The studies concerned the structure of oxide spinels based on MnCo2O4, where we substitute part of Co by Fe and study these novel materials for their electrocatalytic activity for oxygen evolution, as studied in the FNP First TEAM project.
We are grateful for the measurement opportunity!
In collaboration with Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, we were able to carry out an interesting tomography study of porous alloys, including oxidized alloys.
The main achievement of this work is the possibility to distinguish the metallic and oxide phases, making detailed 3D analysis possible.

This work has been carried out within the Sonata BIS project.
I am a researcher working in materials science, mainly with ceramic materials but also with metallic alloys.
