Preface
Wstęp
The Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science (FPACS) is one of the fifteen Faculties of the AGH
University of Science and Technology in Cracow. The origins of the Faculty are dated back to 1919, when the
Academy of Mining was founded, within which the Chair of Physics was erected. It has undergone several
organizational transformations until in 1991 the AGH Senate has decided to form the Faculty of Physics and
Nuclear Techniques. In 2004 the name was changed to Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science,
accordingly to the changes in the fields of scientific and educational activity.
Scientific activity of the Faculty comprises both basic and applied research in solid state physics, nuclear and
elementary particles physics, medical physics and physics of the environment.
There are six departments within the Faculty:
1. Department of Solid State Physics
(Katedra Fizyki Ciała Stałego)
2. Department of Medical Physics and Biophysics
(Katedra Fizyki Medycznej i Biofizyki)
3. Department of Condensed Matter Physics
(Katedra Fizyki Materii Skondensowanej)
4. Department of Applied Informatics and Computational Physics
(Katedra Informatyki Stosowanej i Fizyki Komputerowej)
5. Department of Particle Interaction and Detection Techniques
(Katedra Oddziaływań i Detekcji Cząstek)
6. Department of Applied Nuclear Physics
(Katedra Zastosowań Fizyki Jądrowej)
All together 176 persons are employed including 121 scientists and 55 technical and administrative staff.
There are 40 full professors and 81 assistant professors or post-docs.
Faculty offers several degree programs leading to B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees.
The undergraduate studies consist of seven-semester bachelor programs in three distinct areas: technical
physics, medical physics and applied computer science. They are followed by three-semester graduate programs, leading to the M.Sc. degree in the various specializations.
Area: Medical Physics; specializations:
Dosimetry and Electronics in Medicine,
Imaging and Biometrics,
4
Area: Technical Physics; specializations:
Computer Physics,
Solid State Physics,
Nuclear Physics,
Environmental Physics,
Area: Applied Computer Science; specialization:
Computer Techniques in Science and Technology.
Faculty members teach both general physics courses and selected branches of physics for students of twelve
Faculties of the AGH-UST. The teaching covers both reading lectures as well as organizing tutorials (physics
problems classes) and laboratory work. Faculty‘s teaching assignments for students of other faculties include
both undergraduate and graduate levels. Some of lectures are offered in English.
Faculty organizes complementary courses for the 1st year students of the University in physics (parallel to
complementary courses in mathematics, organized by the Faculty of Applied Mathematics). The aim of the
courses is to fill possible gaps in the high-school education that discourage young candidates from electing
technical- and science-oriented areas of study and – for the candidates who undertook such studies – increase the efficiency of the training.
Faculty hosts three four-year programs of Ph.D. Studies in Physics. The first of them are the regular Ph.D.
studies in the fields related to the research interests of Faculty members, i.e. technical nuclear physics, condensed matter physics, high energy physics, nuclear electronics, environmental physics.
The second Ph.D. program started on the 1st October 2009 co-organized with Cracow‘s Institute of Nuclear
Physics and Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry (both Institutes are units of the Polish Academy of
Science – PAS). The program under the name “Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Studies (ISD): New Materials for
Modern Technologies and Future Energetics” is financed by the EU Structural Funds (Program: Kapitał
Ludzki). The ISD goal is training high-class specialists, with the Ph.D. degree, in fields recognized as strategically important in EU and presented under the general terms: Info, Bio, Nano and Techno. The program of
the Ph.D. studies covers a wide variety of physical, chemical and technological topics in materials science
and modern energetics.
Finally, the third Ph.D. program run in co-operation with Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of PAS
and selected research institutes of 10 European countries is a common International PhD program in Nanoscience. The project is financed by European Union Innovative Economy Program acting via Foundation
for Polish Science. It had been selected for financial support as one of three projects in the first call for the International PhD Studies Programs and started in September 2008.
Research is scheduled for 4 or 5 years, of which 6 to 24 months the students will spend abroad, mostly in
Western European institutes that belong to the consortium.
Faculty offers also a three semester Post-diploma (part-time) Study for Teachers. The studies are intended
for primary and secondary school teachers, who want to gain additional qualifications giving them right to
teach: physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, natural sciences and technical education.

MOESSBAUER SPECTROSCOPY GROUP
Our current research interests include two areas: (1)
solid state physics and (2) bio-farmaceutico-medical
physics. Our current activities of the former are concentrated on experimental and theoretical investigation
of various physical properties of the sigma-phase in
binary alloy systems (e. g. Fe-Cr, Fe-V, Co-Cr) as well
as dynamical properties of poly- and nanocrystalline
bcc Fe-Cr alloys, using different experimental (e. g.
Mössbauer Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Neutron Diffraction, Magnetometry) and theoretical (e. g. Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker Green‘s function)
methods. Regarding the latter issue, we are interested in forms and properties of iron present in samples
of an organic origin (e. g. ferritin) as well as those
having application in medicine (e.g. antianemic
medicaments).
Zakres aktualnych badań naukowych dotyczy dwóch
dziedzin: (1) fizyki ciała stałego oraz (2) fizyki biomedyczno-farmaceutycznej. W zakresie (1) prowadzone
są doświadczalne i teoretyczne badania różnych
własności fizycznych fazy sigma w stopach dwuskładnikowych (np. Fe-Cr, Fe-V, Co-Cr) a także własności
dynamicznych polikrystalicznych i nanokrystalicznych
stopów Fe—Cr przy zastosowaniu różnych technik
eksperymentalnych (np. Spektroskopia efektu Mössbauera, jądrowy rezonans magnetyczny, dyfrakcja
neutronów, magnetometria) i teoretycznych (np. metoda funkcji Greena w przybliżeniu KKR). W zakresie
(2), badane są formy i własności żelaza w próbkach
pochodzenia organicznego (np. ferrytyna) oraz w
próbkach farmaceutycznych (np. leki przeciwko anemii).

PROFILE
COMPLEX SYSTEMS GROUP
Research is conducted in a few threads; below the
topics are mentioned which are concentrated in the
Complex Systems Group. One of them is connected
with the collaboration with the Departmento Fisica de
Materiales at the Universidad del Pais Vasco, Spain.
This research deals with modeling the stray field of
amorphous microscopic wires of complex domain
structure, including simulations of the process of remagnetization of these wires due to their bistability.
Another research deals with modeling sociological
processes in general frames of game theory. Since
2009, the subject is conducted in frames of 7FP EU on
applications of complexity theory to socio-technical
systems. Our contribution is based, among other
things, on simulations of crowd dynamics within the
social force model. Our new direction of research is
biometrics. This research area deals with the applications of computer science, in particular the pattern
recognition, to the methods of human identification
and verification.
Badania prowadzone są w kilku kierunkach; wymieniamy tu tematy skoncentrowane w Zespole
Układów Złożonych. Jeden z tych kierunków wiąże się
z współpracą z laboratorium fizyki materiałowej na
Uniwersytecie Kraju Basków w San Sebastian.
Modelowane są rozkłady pola rozproszonego
amorficznych drutów mikroskopowych o złożonej
strukturze domenowej; prowadzone są w szczególności symulacje przemagnesowania związane z
bistabilnością tych drutów. Innym kierunkiem badań
jest modelowanie procesów socjologicznych w ramach
szeroko pojętej teorii gier. Od 2009 ten temat jest
badany w ramach grantu 7FP EU dotyczącego zastosowań teorii złożoności w układach technospołecznych. Nasz wkład jest oparty m.in. na symulacjach dynamiki tłumu w ramach Modelu Sił Społecznych Helbinga i in. (2000). Nowo rozwijającą
dziedziną prowadzonych u nas badań jest biometria.
Ten obszar to zastosowania informatyki, w szczególności rozpoznawania obrazów, w metodach
identyfikacji ludzi.

PROFILE
The scientific activity of Department cover three areas
of research:
 basic research of elementary constituents of the
matter and their interactions in high energy collisions
 design and construction of detectors and readout
electronics for high energy physics experiments,
 development of detectors and readout electronics
for neuroscience experiments and medical imaging.
The high energy experiments are long term projects
and because of high cost of large accelerators and
detection facilities they are performed by large international collaborations. Our participation in experiments
is as complete as possible and covers all phases of
the projects: preparations of the research programs,
design and construction of the experimental apparatus, data analyses as well as maintaining and upgrading detector systems.
Currently we participate in analysis of data from three
experiments, which have finished data taking:
 ZEUS e±p at HERA (DESY),
 DELPHI e+e- at LEP (CERN),
 OPAL e+e- at LEP (CERN).
Over last decade have contributed to design and
construction of two new experiments:
 ATLAS pp and Pb-Pb at LHC (CERN),
 LHCb pp at LHC (CERN),
and in 2010 we started running these two experiments
and we participated in data analysis.
A special attention is paid to processes leading to a
New Physics, particularly to Higgs and supersymmetric particles discoveries in ATLAS experiment. Study
of the CP symmetry breaking in LHCb experiment
could explain matter – antimatter asymmetry as well
as search for rare decays of the beauty B mesons can
also be a link to New Physics.
In parallel, we carry out R&D programs aiming at
development of the detector concepts and new detector technologies for an upgrade of the ATLAS experiment and for a future experiment at the International
Linear Collider.
The activity in the area of detectors and front-end
electronics focuses on development of readout systems for position sensitive detectors employing Application Specific Integrated Circuits. We carry out
development of readout ASICs for the following detector technologies:
 tracking detectors for high energy physics experiments based on silicon microstrip detectors,
 detectors for X-ray imaging based on silicon
microstrip detectors,
 detectors for charge particles and X-ray imaging
based on Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM).
Tematyka naukowa Katedry obejmuje trzy kierunki
badań:
 badania podstawowe elementarnych składników
materii i ich oddziaływań metodą zderzeń
wysokoenergetycznych wiązek,
 rozwój detektorów i aparatury elektronicznej dla
eksperymentów fizyki wysokich energii,
 projektowanie i budowę detektorów i aparatury
elektronicznej dla eksperymentów neurobiologicznych oraz dla obrazowania medycznego.
Eksperymenty wysokich energii są projektami długofalowymi, a budowa akceleratorów i aparatury detekcyjnej wymaga dużych nakładów finansowych
prace z dziedziny fizyki cząstek elementarnych mogą
być
prowadzone
tylko
w ramach
dużych
międzynarodowych zespołów. Nasz udział w eksperymentach obejmuje wszystkie ich fazy od przygotowania programu fizycznego poprzez projektowanie i
budowę elementów aparatury detekcyjnej, jej obsługę i
modernizację, po analizę danych.
Zespół pracowników Katedry uczestniczy w trzech
eksperymentach, które zakończyły już zbieranie
danych, ale analiza materiału doświadczalnego trwa
nadal:
 ZEUS na akceleratorze ep HERA w ośrodku
DESY
 DELPHI na akceleratorze e+e-, LEP w CERN-ie
 OPAL na akceleratorze e+e-, LEP w CERN-ie
W ostatnim dziesięcioleciu uczestniczyliśmy w projektowaniu i budowie aparatury dla dwu nowych eksperymentów na akceleratorze LHC w CERN-ie:
 ATLAS – p-p i Pb-Pb
 LHCb
p p,
a od 2010 roku po uruchomieniu akceleratora LHC
uczestniczymy w procesie zbierania i analizy danych.
Specjalną uwagę zwraca się na bezpośrednie odkrycie obiektów związanych z tzw. Nową Fizyką.
Poszukiwanie cząstki Higgsa oraz cząstek supersymetrycznych jest priorytetowym zadaniem eksperymentu
ATLAS. Z kolei badanie stopnia łamania symetrii CP
oraz rzadkich rozpadów w eksperymencie LHCb może
również prowadzić do odkrycia Nowej Fizyki i być
może wyjaśnienia głębokiej asymetrii pomiędzy materią i antymaterią.
Równolegle prowadzone są prace projektowe w celu
zastosowania nowych technologii detektorowych dla
przyszłej modernizacji detektora ATLAS oraz przygotowania aparatury detekcyjnej dla eksperymentu na
akceleratorze liniowym ILC.
Działalność w dziedzinie detektorów i systemów elektroniki odczytu koncentruje się na rozwoju systemów odczytu detektorów pozycjo-czułych z wykorzystaniem techniki specjalizowanych układów scalonych.
26
I parallel, investigation of radiation effects in semiconductor devices and circuits is carried out, which are of
primary importance in the front-end electronics for
readout of silicon strip detectors in the high energy
physics experiments.
In the area of neuroscience we develop systems for
imaging of neural activity in live neural tissues. including retina and cortex. A common aim of various research projects carried out in collaboration with neuroscientists is to develop two ways communication
between live neurons and electronic circuits.
Obecnie prowadzone są prace na rozwojem układów
scalonych do systemów odczytu następujących typów
detektorów:
 detektory torów cząstek dla eksperymentów fizyki
wysokich energii oparte na mikropaskowych detektorach krzemowych,
 detektory promieniowania X-ray oparte na mikropaskowych detektorach krzemowych,
 detektory cząstek naładowanych i promieniowania X oparte na gazowych powielaczach elektronów (GEM - Gas Electron Multipliers).
Równolegle prowadzone są badania nad efektami
radiacyjnymi w przyrządach półprzewodnikowych i
obwodach elektronicznych, które są szczególnie istotne dla elektroniki front-end do odczytu krzemowych
detektorów mikropaskowych w eksperymentach fizyki
wysokich energii.
W dziedzinie badań neurobiologicznych rozwijane są
systemy do obrazowania aktywności neuronalnej w
żywych tkankach nerwowych, takich jak siatkówka oka
i kora mózgowa. Wspólnym celem różnych projektów
badawczych prowadzonych we współpracy z neurobiologami jest opracowanie dwukierunkowej komunikacji
pomiędzy żywymi neuronami i obwodami elektronicznymi.

The bcc iron is known as an archetypal collinear ferromagnet. The deviations from this fundamental magnetic structure are expected for the ultrathin Fe films
as a consequence of symmetry breaking at surfaces
or interfaces as well as a magnetoelastic effects originating from the misfits between Fe film and the substrate. Recently, we showed that at certain conditions
collinear ferromagnetism becomes less favorable then
a spin spiral-like, vertically inhomogeneous magnetization state [1]. This happens at the spin reorientation
transition (SRT) in Fe films grown on W(110). SRT in
the case of Fe/W(110), consists in the switching of
spontaneous magnetization during the film growth
from the [1 1 0] to the [001] in-plane direction as the
iron film approaches the critical thickness, dc. Our
thickness-induced SRT was monitored in-situ using
grazing incidence nuclear resonant scattering (NRS)
of synchrotron radiation [2]. The numerical analysis of
the NRS data indicated that, a non-collinear magnetization structure is formed in the vicinity of the critical
thickness, with a strong surface magnetization pinning
along the [1 1 0] direction. With increasing thickness,
the transition is initiated at the bottom atomic layers,
neighboring with the tungsten substrate, and finally is
completed at the surface layer. The measurements
were done at the Nuclear Resonance beamline ID18
[3] at the ESRF. 57Fe was evaporated on a freshly
cleaned W(110). Directly during the preparation, a set
of the NRS time spectra was collected in thickness
steps corresponding to a fraction of the Fe monolayer.
The deposition of Fe was not interrupted from the
beginning up to the completion of the SRT process,
and the spectra were accumulated on-line during the
film growth. The fitted time spectra are shown in Figure 1 for the selected Fe film thicknesses. A regular
beat structure that is exemplified in Fig.1a reflects,
according to the theoretical fits, the uniform magnetization state along the [1 1 0] direction, with the hyperfine magnetic field close to bulk Fe ( BHF = 32.9 T)
Such a state persists up to the thickness of about d =
51 Å. Similarly, the spectra for the coverages above
56 Å ( see Fig. 1f ) can be easily fitted assuming a
homogeneous magnetization but now parallel to the
[001] direction.. It is clear that the SRT process is not
abrupt but extends over a relatively large thickness
range of δ ~ 6 Å, corresponding to 3 ML. The most
unique and also challenging to fit were the time spectra accumulated during the progress of SRT (Fig.1,be). The two most commonly considered ways of the
magnetization transition from [1 1 0] to [001] : (i) coherent rotation and (ii) coexistence of [001] and [1 1 0]
magnetized domains, assuming a homogeneous
magnetization depth profile across the Fe(110) films,
produced distinctly different spectra, however, neither
of them could satisfactorily fit the experimental data in
the transition. The successful fits (Fig.1) could be
obtained when the distribution of the magnetization
directions was modeled by dividing the film with nominal thickness d into five equivalent sub-layers. For
each sub-layer, an in-plane orientation of the hyperfine
magnetic field (sublayer magnetization MN) was defined by the angle φN with respect to the [1 1 0] inplane direction. The orientation of the sub-layer mag
netizations M 15 , as derived from the analysis of the
NRS data, is shown schematically in Fig.2 for the
successive Fe thicknesses. The onset of the transition
was noticed for the thickness of 51.6 Å. SRT from [1
1 0] to [001] is initiated at the deepest layers (neighboring the tungsten substrate), which switch first, while
the magnetization of the remaining sub-layers forms a
fan-like structure. With increasing thickness, the mag35
netization of the subsequent sub-layers rotates, and
finally the transition is completed by the top-most
surface layers.
Our studies clearly show that non-collinear, exotic
magnetic phase of epitaxial Fe films is stabilized at the
vicinity of a critical SRT thickness. Such a magnetic
structure resembles a planar domain wall with its
center propagating towards the surface as the thickness increases.

Magnetic axis switching phenomenon in magnetite: NMR Studies

Magnetite is certainly one of the most fascinating
materials ever found. The phenomenon strictly related
to the Verwey transition is the switching of magnetic
easy axis (axis switching, AS). Since the structure
changes at TV, each of high temperature cubic h100i
directions may become the low temperature monoclinic c axis, doubled in comparison to the cubic lattice
constant. As a result, the material breaks into several
structural domains unless some external anisotropic
factor, e.g. uniaxial stress, or a magnetic field B > 0.2
T is applied along particular [h00] direction while cooling through the transition; this direction will then become both the unique c axis and also the magnetic
easy axis. If now magnetite sample is magnetized
along another direction of <h00> type at temperatures
lower than TV, a reorientation of magnetic moments,
i.e. easy axis switching, may take place and this direction becomes a new easy axis. We have recently
proved that also crystallographic c axis is forced to this
particular direction. This means the manipulation of
structure is possible by the magnetic field and one
would expect that also the charge ordering will follow.
To prove it, the NMR measurements were undertaken
[1], taking into account that these measurements can
easily see all different iron positions, i.e. are the most
sensitive probe to observe lattice distortion, charge
and orbital order in magnetite below TV.
(with the field B=1.3T) after heating the sample to
T=80K just below TV and the sample was measured
again in B=0.3T and at T=20K, revealing the NMR
pattern (Fig. 1c) almost identical to the original one. It
thus looks as if all octahedral surroundings of the A
atom we observe are, in relation to the field B direction, the same as before.
Finally, when the magnetic field axis was reverted to
its initial direction and the whole procedure was repeated, the pattern almost came back to the one found
before (Fig 1d-f). Cooling the sample in 1.3 T through
the Verwey transition down to 57 K (the field was
along [100] axis) and applying 0.5T field along [010]
direction enabled the observation of axis switching
dynamics (only lines A3-A7 were measured in order to
obtain reasonable signal/noise ratio). It is apparent
(see Fig. 2) that the electronic system evolved from
that on Fig. 1b (the external field was slightly higher) to
the one on Fig. 1c within approximately 20 hours.
The final conclusions of our studies is that
not only lattice distortion, but also orbital and charge
orders, were changed simultaneously after the application of external magnetic field.
The sample was the sphere of stoichiometric
magnetite oriented with [001] axis vertical, parallel to the
RF coil axis. External magnetic field, up to 1T, could be
set horizontally and the sample could be rotated to allow
all the directions in [001] zone to be examined. Only
tetrahedral lines were checked what amounts to A iron
nucleus being a probe for its nearest neighbors (B
atoms) arrangement.
We have first field cooled the sample to 20K, which
sets the c axis in the field direction (say [100]), establishing some atomic arrangement. Then the field of
0.3T was applied along [100] and the corresponding
NMR signal for all A lines is shown on Fig. 1a. The
field was then rotated such that it points in other cubic
direction (Fig.1b); since the field was small enough not
to force AS, the NMR pattern reflects the different
hyperfine field but with the same atomic arrangement
as before. Axis switching was subsequently forced
Fig. 1. Selected tetrahedral sites spectra revealing
axis switching. Figures 13a, 13c and 13e correspond
to external magnetic field (0.3T, T=20K) set along the
easy axis (however c and d show the pattern after axis
37
switching) while in 13b, 13d and 13f the external field
is perpendicular to the easy axis. Between b and c,
and d and e, the sample was heated up to 80K and
the field of 1.3T was applied to switch the easy axis.
Scheme on right side describes the steps of the experiment.

Hybrid materials consisting of electroactive polymers and redox inorganic compounds such as hexacyanometalates attract attention due to their potential
use in electrocatalysis, energy conversion and storage
devices as well as sensors or electrochemical capacitors. Thin films of such materials are capable of accumulating charge efficiently and exhibit high discharging
current density. Iron hexacyanoferrate (Fehcf) is the
most popular metal hexacyanometallate used as a
dopant for modified electrodes with electroactive
polymers.
Thin films of the materials were synthesized with
electropolimerisation and the samples were characterised with ex-situ XPS and Raman spectrocopies as
well as with AFM. The preparation procedure and the
results of characterisation are described in [1]. Synthesis of organic–inorganic composite materials may
cause direct interaction between both compounds,
which can modify its properties. In in order to determine local electronic and structural properties of the
Fe sites which work an X-ray Absorption Near Edge
Spectroscopy (XANES) study at the Fe:K edge has
been undertaken.
XANES spectra were collected at the ID26 beamline of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in
Grenoble, France, using the undulator fundamental
monochromatized by a pair of Si(311) crystals. The Fe
K fluorescence yield signal was acquired using a Si
photodiode placed at 90° in horizontal scattering
geometry in order to minimize the elastic contribution,
while the sample surface was typically at 45° with
respect to the direction of the incoming beam. All the
measurements were performed at ambient conditions.
The theoretical modelling of XANES spectra was
performed using FDMNES programme [2]. The calculations were performed on small clusters, up to the
second next neighbours, using molecule mode calculations and dipole only contribution to the absorption
spectra.
XANES provides the information about the valence
state and coordination of the probed element in the
material, which are reflected in the shape and energy
of the absorption edge. The presence of different
atoms in the coordination space of the probed element
causes that the spectrum obtained is a sum of spectra
of all surroundings of the probed element present in
the sample. Thus, in the case of the Fe K-edge spectrum it is a sum of Fe(CN)6 and Fe(NC)6 for low- and
high spin iron centre, respectively, and of FeS6 if
present, as XPS and Raman results suggest. Figure 1
shows XANES spectra of the materials studied. One
can see that the shape of the spectrum for pEDOT/Fehcf and pEDOT/FeCN reveal common features.
Fig. 1. XANES spectra of the pEDOT/Fehcf, pEDOT/FeCN films and Fe foil.
The shape of absorption edge - small pre-edge peak
and distinct ‗white line‘ - resembles that observed for
materials with the iron atoms being coordinated by six
ligands. It suggests the octahedral structure for the
iron central atom. The edge energy at about 7123 eV,
which indicates that both Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions are present in the studied materials. However, the spectral
shapes for pEDOT/FeCN and pEDOT/Fehcf are not
identical. The former spectrum is dominated by Fe-C
bonds coming from hexacyanoferrate ions present in
the material and acting as counterions for the positively charged polymer matrix as expected. The edge
shape of the latter spectrum suggests a mixed neighbourhood of the central iron atom. This mixed neighbourhood is related to the presence of Fe-C and Fe-N
39
bonding for low- and high spin iron centres. Thus, one
can conclude that the Prussian Blue structure is present in the pEDOT/Fehcf material.

Figure 2a-c) shows a theoretical simulation of the Fe
K-edge XANES spectra for the FeS6, FeS4(CN)2,
FeS3(CN)3, Fe(CN)6 and Fe(NC)6 coordinations of the
iron centre. The theoretical XANES spectrum obtained for FeS6 (Fig. 2a) is more similar to pEDOT/Fehcf than to pEDOT/FeCN (Fig. 1). It may be
caused by the fact that the curve of pEDOT/FeCN is
dominated by the iron – cyanide coordination and the
interaction Fe-S is very likely to be not visible. Nevertheless, one can see the similarity between pEDOT/Fehcf (Fig. 1) and FeS6 (Fig. 2a) curves. The
maximum of the peak at higher energies is flat in both
cases. Thus, it is possible that there is some interaction between atoms within the polymer film. This interaction is very likely to originate from the Fe-S connection between iron atom from Prussian Blue and sulphur atom from the polymer chain.
It is difficult to conclude whether there is a mixed
environment like FeS(CN) in the pEDOT/Fehcf film
(see Fig. 2b). The energy for both mixed environments
is the same which is in disagreement with experimental data (Fig. 1.).
The theoretical spectra of Fe(CN)6 and Fe(NC)6
are similar to the experimental results. It suggests that
the iron centre in the octahedral coordination is surrounded by six cyanide ligands. Thus, it also confirms
that there are hexacyanoferrate species in pEDOT/FeCN and pEDOT/Fehcf materials. In the pEDOT/FeCN film iron atoms are bonded to carbon
atoms of the cyanide groups whereas in the case of
pEDOT/Fehcf, one may see, that iron is coordinated
by both carbon and nitrogen atoms from cyanide
group. Such a situation is typical for Prussian Blue
compounds.
Summarising, formation of Prussian Blue type
structure inside the polymer and the presence of iron
(II) and iron (III) in the hybrid material has been confirmed. The XANES results show that the central metal
atom is symmetrically coordinated by six ligands. This
confirms the octahedral molecular geometry of the iron
environements in the pEDOT/FeCN and pEDOT/Fehcf
films.
Changes observed in the XANES spectra of pEDOT/Fe(CN)63-/4- and pEDOT/Fehcf indicate that the
formation of Fe-S proceeded during preparation of the
hybrid material from the polymer with counter-ions. If
some Fe(II)/Fe(III) species were not trapped by hexacyanoferrate(ferrite) counter-ions, iron might be chemically attracted to sulphur atoms from polymer without
other ligands.

Iron doping up to x = 0.1 does not change
the crystal structure of parent compound and leads to
very small expansion of the unit cell volume (0.3%)
but it suppresses locally the double exchange interaction. This causes a reduction of the saturation magnetic moment, an increase of the resistivity, as well as
a decrease of the Curie (TC) and metal-insulator (TM–I)
transition temperatures.
can be interpreted within the model of preferential Fe
3d5 configuration and gradual decrease of the average
Mn 3d occupation upon substitution.
The shift by ~0.25eV from x = 0.0 to x = 0.15
agrees well with the expected average valence
change from Mn3.33+ to Mn3.45+, assuming linear relationship between edge position and Mn oxidation [3].

Figure 1. The normalized Mn K-edge XANES spectra
of La0.67Pb0.33(Mn1-xFex)O3. Insert: magnified part of
the spectra at half of maximum to extract the edge
shift vs of Fe content.
Photoemission measurements were carried out by
use of the angle resolved X-ray and ultraviolet
XPS/ARUPS Omicron photoemission spectrometer.
The XP spectra were measured for x= 0, 0.08 and
0.10 with the Al- K X-ray source with energy resolution about 1 eV at 300 K. Special attention was focused to the analysis of the Mn 2p core-level lines and
the multiplet splitting (MS) of the lines was taken into
account. It arises when, upon ejection of core electron,
the angular momenta of the partially filled core shell
can couple with the angular momenta of open atomic
valence shell to form several multiplets of different
energies [4]. The MS is expected to be observed if the
specimen possesses unpaired electrons in its outer

2p53d3 for Mn+4 and 2p53d4 for Mn+3 ions. To analyse
the MS of the Mn 2p core-level line we have adopted
the results of the MS calculations for Mn+3 and Mn+4
ions presented in [4,5] in order to fit the Mn 2p3/2 spectra. The selected spectra and the fittings are shown in

denote fitted straight lines. The dashed line is a guide
for eye.
The x=0.1 compound exhibits the largest magnetoresistance effect of about 300% around its TM–I
temperature in the applied field of 80 kOe. The resistivity above TC for the compounds follows the thermally
activated behaviour with the activation energy of about
0.12 eV.
Significantly larger values of the paramagnetic Curie-Weiss temperature CW than the corresponding TC
at larger x are presumably related to increased microscopic inhomogeneity of the samples.
The temperature and magnetic field dependences
of magnetoresistance of these polycrystalline compounds with small grain sizes are governed by the
magnitudes of TM–I and TC temperatures and their
mutual relation. The increasing Fe content reduces the
magnetization and increases the magnetoresistance. It
is more effective in reinforcing ―extrinsic‖ magnetoresistance than in affecting the ―intrinsic‖ magnetoresistance. In all the compounds studied the ―extrinsic‖
part of the electrical resistance plays a dominant role.

spectra of all the samples reveal similar shape with a
small, but significant gradual shift of the edge energy
(Fig.1), which is attributed to Mn charge disproportion
upon Fe substitution. A shift towards higher energy

The possible applications of hydrogen as an
energy carrier have caused intensive development of
wide range of hydrogen-related applications. Today‘s
applications require efficient hydrogen storage systems of high safety level. As high-pressure hydrogen
storage systems can be hardly accepted in transport
applications (eg. cars) or even totally unsuitable for
mobile electronic ones (eg. notebooks, robots) there is
a need for developing low-pressure hydrogen storage
systems of similar properties. Up to now, the metalhydride (MH) based storage vessels are believed to be
very promising in the future. However, there are significant drawbacks of the MH storage systems to be
overcome. Namely, the weight ratio of stored hydrogen is about 2% of the total mass of the container. On
the other hand, optimization of internal structure of the
MH container should provide enhancement of heat
dissipation from the active material as well as easy
hydrogen access to whole volume of the material.
Neutron imaging techniques (radiography
and tomography) are the only ones that give an insight
into phenomena happening inside of MH storage
container under its operation. The hydrogen is an
excellent neutron attenuator while the common metals
are quite transparent to neutrons. As the difference is
of two orders of magnitude, a very strong contrast
between hydrided and unhydrided active material can
be expected. This special feature may be used for
tracking of the hydrogenation kinetics during loading/unloading of MH storage container.
Fig. 1 Radiographic images of the investigated MH storage container.
In figure 1 a radiography image of aluminum MH storage tank filled with LaNi 5 alloy is presented. As one can see,
interior structure of the tank and active material distribution is clearly visible. In figure 2 a reconstruction of hydrogen
distribution in the investigated container is presented.

Fig. 2 Tomographic images of cylindrical hydrogen storage container during hydrogenation. The container was loaded
for 5 min. at the pressure of 10 bar. The upper surface of the active material is referred to 0 mm, subsequent images
proceed to the bottom of the container (-9 mm).
Hydrogen is not absorbed in the whole volume of the
active material. Apparently, elevated concentration is
visible at the interfaces. The upper surface of the
powder, that is visible at depths between 0-3 mm, is
almost completely saturated by hydrogen. When
proceeding down, to bulk of the powder, the hydrogen
concentration is lowered to the level of about 0.4 %wt.
The high concentration of hydrogen is visible along the
vessel‘s walls, as well. This supports claims about
crucially importance of heat transfer within the absorbing bed as well as between the bed and the walls.
It was shown, that neutron imaging techniques are a very good tool for in-situ studying of the
hydrogen storage system. Neutron imaging is the only
technique that gives a first-hand insight into phenomena happening inside storage vessel. It seems that a
complementary investigation by means of radio- and
tomography may be crucial for further development of
efficient hydrogen storage. Especially, it allows optimization of the internal structure of such devices, by
testing some details of its construction.

In recent years literature studies indicate an
essential role of minor and trace elements in a number
of pathological processes. Selected elements may
contribute, directly or indirectly, on the carcinogenic
process [1]. The elemental abnormalities, including
these related to Zn, Cu, Fe, K, Rb, Mn, Se, Ca, in
various forms of cancer were reported over the past
decade [2-4]. However, the exact role of these and
many other elements in carcinogenesis remains unknown. Molecular oncology is in need of the application of structural methods which are capable of monitoring biochemical processes and interactions within
the neoplastic tissues. The recent development of
microprobe beamlines of third generation synchrotron
sources enables spatially resolved XRF (X-ray fluorescence) at cellular and subcellular levels.
A sort of ―elemental fingerprinting‖ of brain tumors
could provide a very useful tool assisting the process
of diagnosing of tumors in difficult or disputable cases.
In the present work it was verified if the multiple discriminant analysis of elements commonly found in
brain tumor tissues can be used to differentiate neoplastic samples according to their histopathological
classifications.
The samples designed to elemental micro-imaging
were taken intraoperatively from brain tumors of different types i.e.: glioblastoma multiforme, gemistocytic
astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, anaplastic oligodendroglioma, ganglioglioma, fibrillary astrocytoma, atypical transitional meningioma. The investigation included
also brain tissue apparently without malignant infiltration. In each case the samples were cryosectioned at
20 μm and freeze-dried.
The synchrotron radiation based XRF (SR-XRF)
measurements were performed at the bending magnet
beamline L at HASYLAB/DESY. The primary photon
energy was set to 17 keV. The beam was focused to a
size of 15 μm in diameter.
Multiple discriminant analysis (MDA) was applied
to grouping and classification of brain tissue samples
based on their elemental content. The SR-XRF technique revealed that the elements such as P, S, Cl, K,
Ca, Fe, Cu, Zn, Br and Rb are present in all analyzed
neoplastic tissues. The masses per unit area of elements from the representative region of each sample
were used for further statistical analysis.
MDA allowed finding that S, Cl, Cu, Fe, K, Br and
Zn are the elements of the highest importance for the
general discrimination of tumor type. It seems justifiable to suppose that the abnormal reactions related
with these elements are a source of the unique elemental fingerprint of different types of brain tumors. It
is worth to mention that the possible role of these
elements in oncogenetic processes has been previously reported [2-4].
Examining of the group discrimination was performed based on simple scatter plot between two
discrimination variables (see Fig. 1). Eight clearly
separated classes corresponding to the histopathological diagnosis of brain tumors and control sample were
obtained.
The utility of the calculated canonical roots was
examined via their ability to correct classification. The
mean percent of correct prediction estimated according to the a posteriori probabilities procedure was
99.93%. Additionally, the leave-one-out method was
used to evaluate the classification efficiency. The
prediction ability of 95% was achieved. It suggests that
the created elemental fingerprinting may be a very
useful tool assisting the process of histopathological
diagnosis of tumors especially in difficult or disputable
cases. The MDA based on elemental composition of
tissue may be a potentially valuable method assisting
differentiation and/or classification (diagnosis) of brain
tumors.

Non-heme iron (NHFe) is a conservative
component of type II photosynthetic reaction centers
(RC) of unknown function. NHFe is localized between
the two ubiquinones (QA and QB) sites on the acceptor
side of RCs. The temperature dependence of electron
transfer (ET) steps and the role of NHFe in photosynthetic charge separation are among the most challenging issues. Intriguingly, QA in RCs from various organisms remains fully active at cryogenic temperatures
whereas ET from reduced QA to QB slows down at
temperatures below 200±20 K. It is not clear whether
NHFe plays any structural role in stabilization of the
QA and QB binding sites and/or it is actively involved in
the primary ET. These problems prompted us to investigate in detail the properties of NHFe in RCs from two
different species of purple photosynthetic bacteria, Rb.
sphaeroides and Rs. rubrum. In order to compare
the valence and spin states as well as dynamic properties of NHFe in these two RCs and to monitor the
collective motions in the NHFe-binding sites we have
applied highly selective techniques, i.e. Mössbauer
spectroscopy and the nuclear inelastic absorption of
synchrotron radiation (NIS), respectively.

Our results show that in the chromatophores
as well as in RCs isolated from Rs. rubrum NHFe
exists mainly in the low spin (LS) state whereas in
those from Rb. sphaeroides an almost equal contribution of its HS (high spin) and LS state is observed
(Fig. 1A and B). The temperature dependent Mössbauer measurements show that the two spin states of
ferrous NHFe are characterized by different Debye
temperatures( ~165 K and ~207 K for the HS and LS
state, respectively). Furthermore, NIS measurements
of the collective motions in the Rb. sphaeroides reaction center show that the density of vibrational states,
originating from non-heme iron, has well-separated
modes between lower (4–17 meV) and higher (17–25
meV) energies while in the one from Rs. rubrum its
distribution is more uniform with only little contribution
of low energy (< 6 meV) vibrations (Fig. 1C). It is the
first experimental evidence that the fluctuations of the
protein matrix in type II reaction center are correlated
to the NHFe spin state. We propose a simple mechanism in which the spin state NHFe directly determines
the strength of coupling between the two quinone
acceptors,QA and QB.

Carbon nanotubes are the nanocylindrical forms of
pure sp2 carbon which can be imagined as the plane
of graphene rolled into different kinds of cylinders (Fig.
2A). The unique carbon nanotubes structures result in
numerous superior physical and chemical properties.
Synthesis, even using the same method, leads to
production of a mixture of various types of carbon
nanotubes exhibiting different features. We studied
iron compounds included in non–functionalized (as
prepared) and functionalized multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) using Mössbauer spectroscopy
(Fig.2B). In the as prepared MWCNTs the Fe3C carbide has the main contribution but its content decreases by about 20 % and 40 % in carboxylated carbon
nanotubes (MWCNTs-COOH) and ammonium salt of
carboxylated carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs-COONH4),
respectively. A small amount of α-Fe and FexCx iron
forms are always observed in all studied carbon nanotubes. In MWCNTs-COOH, additionally, ferrihydrates
and/or FexCy with oxygen in the second coordination
sphere of iron are present (at the level of about 17%).
In MWCNTs-COONH4 their content increase by a
factor of 3. The experimental data shows that purification and functionalization of as prepared MWCNTs
result in removal of about 90% of iron contaminations.
All these results are important to optimize the as prepared MWCNTs purification process and to find a new
way to produce different Fe phases inside MWCNTs.

Application of the adaptive Weight Smoothing Algorithm and The
Wavelet Transform for the Noise Reduction in MRI
J. ŚWIEBOCKA–WIĘK, H. FIGIEL
Department of Medical Physics and Biophysics, Biomedical Imaging and Modeling Group
INTRODUCTION
Finding the best way of the SNR improvement in
MRI is a key problem of the image quality correction.
The Adaptive Weight Smoothing algorithm [1] and the
wavelet transformation method were examined to test
their application to improve the MRI images. Both
methods were implemented in the MATLAB
environment.
RESULTS
Application of the AWS algorithm
Based on the AWS algorithm the program
dedicated to the MRI application was written. The
Figure 1 ilustrates the AWS algorithm functioning. In
the beginning for an image choosen for the noise
removing, the  and hmax parameter values are
defined. After the 1st iteration the image is smoothed
and the noise is partly reduced. In subsequent
iterations smoothing and noise reduction effects are
stronger. Basing only on the visual evaluation it is
advisable to terminate the algorithm after the 3rd or the
4th iteration. Finding the best, but not to high  value is
needed to prevent too strong image smoothing.
ALGORITHMS DESCRIPTION
Adaptive Weight Smoothing requires two
input parameters:  (power of image smoothing in
each iteration step) and hmax which describes the
maximum pixel surrounding. In each iteration step for
every pixel, intensities of surrounding pixels are
modified by the sets of weights. In each next iteration
step h value is increased. The set of weights depends
on the difference in the intensities of pixels in previous
steps controlled by the parameter  In the next step
the images are merged. It is based on weighted
summation of three images;  –input image with the
high noise level  – image processed with the low
value and – image processed with the high
value. In result the image with improved quality is
expected.
In wavelet transform a set of two functions is
needed: the wavelet function (responsible for high
pass filtration and keeping the signal details) and the
scaling function (responsible for low pass filtration) To
apply the wawelet transformation the numerical
method called the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT)
is used. Signal is processed in the series of filters. It is
decomposed into two subsignals representing low and
high frequencies. Subsignal (subimage) which
contains low frequencies represents the input signal‘s
approximation. Subsignal which contains high
frequencies represents image details. Only subsignal
with high frequencies is sampled again for new
approximation. In each sampling step the detail
coefficients are expressed by the Wavelet Transform
coefficients, and the approximation coefficients are
expressed by scaling function coefficients. A method
of calculating the scaling function coefficients and the
wavelet function coefficients in case of the two–
dimensional signals is called Mallat‘s algorithm. This
method decomposes an input image into four component subimages – representing the image‘s
approximation, vertical, horizontal, and diagonal
edges. This method allows for an implementation of
the multi–level resolution.
Application of the DWT algorithm
After image loading to Matlab wavelet
Toolbox it is possible to choose denoising parameters.
For the selected wavelet function the iterations are
proceeded (as described above). When the denoising
effect is satisfactory, image is reconstructed by using
the Inverse Discrete Wavelet Transform (IDWT). In the
case of MRI, the best effects are achieved using the
biorthogonal wavelets.
The SNR and the CNR
The Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is defined as:
SNR 


where:
μ – the mean signal
 – the noise standard deviation (the background standard deviation)
The Contrast to Noise Ratio (CNR) describing the
signal diffrence between two structures (for example
two tissues) is used to describe images according to
the equation:
CNR 
C


S A  SB

C means contrast, SA and SB are signal intensities for
structures A and B, σ is a standard deviation of the
background. The input image has the highest SNR,
and noised image – the lowest. For the AWS algorithm
in each noise reducing iteration SNR and CNR increase. In each successive iteration the image is
brighter and more smoothed. The same SNR and
CNR analysis was applied in case of the DWT to
50
choose the best wavelet family for the MRI applications. The images with the highest SNR value were
received after using biorthogonal 4.4 wavelet type
(SNR=6.446,CNR=1).
Detection of edges
A simple edge detection algorithm was used. After its
application for the noiseless image, all the anatomical
edges were sharpened. Using the same method for
noised image shows a big number of the false edges.
The image is unreadable and diagnostically useless.
After the AWS filtration all the redundant edges were
removed but the edges became diffused (significant
disadvantage). The DWT method detected all the
needed edges, but also some of the false ones. The
degree of redundant edges detection depends on
wavelets family.
Fig. 1. The AWS algorithm functioning in the following
iterations ( =4, h(k)=a*h(k– 1), where k means number of
the iteration, a =sqrt(1.25),each h was rounded to an
integer)
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS
The application of the AWS method needs
high time consumption because the weights are calculated for each pixel within the surrounding. The DWT
algorithm allows shortening calculation time. However
it does not remove all the false edges and requires
bigger number of the input parameters. The AWS
algorithm gives good visual effects (merging images).
It keeps the edges, and the brightness of the average
image slightly increases. The AWS algorithm can be
applied to improve MRI images in the case of medium
noise and low SNR. Application of the DWT increases
image brightness and makes it more homogenous
The presented results prove that the further
application of the AWS and DWT methods to improve
MRI images can be useful.7

Fe-Cr and Fe-V alloy systems play important
roles both in science and industry. The former stems
from their treatment as model alloys, while the latter is
caused by the fact that these alloys constitute basic
ingredients in a steel making industry. Fe-Cr alloys are
especially technologically significant as they are used
in the production of a variety of stainless steels (SS)
that thanks to their properties, like excellent hightemperature corrosion resistance, have been used as
the most important structural materials in many strategic branches of industry e. g. power plants, oil refineries. Some properties of SS, like precipitation of a phase, are inherited from the parent alloy. The phase has a tetragonal structure (type D144h P42/mnm)
with 30 atoms distributed over five different sites – see
Fig. 1. Its physical properties are, in general, quite
different than those of the -phase of similar composition, from which the -phase precipitates. Some properties, like the magnetic ones, are even dramatically
different [1], other properties, like the Debye temperature, seem to be very similar [2]. The latter is rather
unexpected as the hardness of  in the Fe-Cr system
is by a factor of 3 larger than that of . A very complex crystallographic structure and a lack of stoichiometry make, on one hand, an interpretation of experimental results difficult and non-unique task, and on the
other hand, it causes that theoretical calculations are
tedious. Nevertheless, the latter can be very useful
and helpful in a proper interpretation of experimental
data [3].
Fig. 1 The unit cell of the -phase. Additionally, all five
lattice sites A, B, C, D, E are shown with their nearestneighbour (NN) shells.
Here we report both experimental and theoretical results obtained for the -phase in Fe-Cr and
Fe-V alloy systems. Concerning the latter, using the
Mössbauer spectroscopy, we have measured a series
of spectra in a temperature range of 80-300 K on
samples with vanadium content between 34.4 and 59
at%. From a temperature dependence of the centre
shift and applying the Debye model, the Debye temperature, D, was determined [4]. Its compositional
dependence is illustrated in Fig. 2, showing an interesting non-monotonous character.

Fe-V alloys [5] as well as magnetic properties of the FeCr alloys [6]. Concerning the former, Fe-site chargedensities were calculated for each of the five sublattices as a function of Fe atoms situated in the NN-shell
revealing a linear correlation. Based on these results,
the average isomer shift was calculated and found to
be in an excellent accord with the measured one.
Finally, electric field gradients were determined theoretically for each lattice site. The calculated results
were successfully used to analyze measured spectra.
For the -FeCr alloys, a magnetic structure was calculated. In particular, it was shown that the magnetic
moments of Fe/Cr atoms occupying all five sites are
proportional to the number of NN-Fe atoms, and the
average magnetic moment per Fe atom is linearly
correlated with the average NN-distance – see Fig. 3.

Lattice rotation in plastic deformation models
K. WIERZBANOWSKI, A. BACZMAŃSKI, M. WROŃSKI
Department of Condensed Matter Physics
The deformation modeling of polycrystalline material
plays an important role in material science [1]. The
predicted deformation textures depend very strongly
on the definition of crystal rotation. The rotation based
onclassical mechanics is commonly used. The other
approach [2] is based on the condition of the preservation of some directions and/or planes of the sample
with respect to the applied forces, i.e., to the laboratory reference frame.
Basic variables in deformation models
The basic equation in the deformation model defines
the relation between macroscopic variables of the
sample (ij, Eij) and local ones (ij, ij) for a polycrystalline grain – Fig. 3.
Mechanisms of plastic deformation
Plastic deformation undergoes by non-reversible
mechanisms such as crystallographic slip or (and)
mechanical twinning. In slip and twinning processes,
two parts of a crystal (or grain) are sheared one with
respect to another. The crystallographic slip is schematically presented in Fig.1. Neighbouring blocs of
crystal are relatively displaced. This movement (i.e.
slip) occurs on a slip plane n: (hkl) and along a slip
direction m: [uvw]. Due to crystal symmetries a family
of equivalent slip systems <uvw>{hkl} exists.

ij in a grainl. Deformation of the sample is Eij and
that of a grain is ij.

In our model [3,4] the following relation between a
grain and the sample variables is used:

It is convenient to define the slip system orientation

direction and slip plane, respectively. If a grain is

described by the displacement tensor eij is:

In general, slip occurs on several slip systems (numbered by ―s‖) simultaneously, hence:

Mechanical twinning consists of shearing movements
of consecutive atomic planes, which leads to the
formation of a crystal region with the crystal lattice
being a mirror image of the original crystal (matrix) –

Two definitions of lattice rotation
Due to the definition given by classical mechanics, the
plastic rotation of a body (of a grain) is equal to the
preserved in the laboratory reference frame (it means
that a string of material being initially parallel to the
tensile direction has to preserve this orientation).
Similarly, if one considers the rolling deformation (with
x1 as rolling direction and x3 as normal direction), the
orientations of rolling plane and direction have (5)
to be
preserved in the laboratory reference frame. This
leads to the following lattice rotation:

If there was not interaction between a grain and the
matrix – crystal lattice orientation would not change
(see Fig.4 a,b). However, some constraints are imposed on a grain by a neighbouring material and the

Crystal rotation can be also defined by the condition of
preservation of some sample directions/planes with
respect to the applied forces [5]. For example, in the

Properties of DNA complexes with new cationic surfactants
J. NIZIOŁ, M. SNIECHOWSKI
Department of Condensed Matter Physics
Bio-derived materials possess uncommon properties
that are virtually impossible to be mimicked in industrial organic or inorganic materials. Furthermore biomaterials are a renewable resource, often obtained
from post-production wastes. Their nature provides
inherent biodegradability. Among all available natural
polymers, a range of outstanding properties are characteristics of the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). DNA is
a long, thin, organic polymer, the rare macromolecule
that represents the atomic scale in one dimension (the
width equal to 2,37 nm) and the human scale in another (a molecule of DNA can be many centimetres
long). A single DNA strand can be viewed as a polymer built of elementary bricks referred to as nucleotides. The nucleotides pair with each other in a complementary fashion. DNA multiplies through a natural
process, running in living cells, known as DNA replication. The replication provides mono-dispersed molecular mass of a bulk DNA sample – a feature impossible
to achieve for any of industrial polymers. Nowadays,
technology enables DNA synthesis of a tailored composition at affordable prices. Even a single DNA strand
can be infinitely artificially replicated using so called
PCR technique. It allows amplifying the initial amount
of DNA millions of times in a few hours with exponentially rising yield. All this features make DNA extremely
well defined material. The DNA double helix may be
imagined as a tunnel of π–π* stacking nucleic base
pairs system available for charge migration. The relatively weak π–π* electron conjugation renders material
with a large optical transparency window. However,
regarding the electrical charge transport there is still
discussed whether the DNA belongs to the class of
insulators, semiconductors, conductors or even superconductors of the transport in DNA molecules.
The extracted DNA is soluble exclusively in water and
is very sensitive to hydration [1] what may substantially influence the final device performance. Fabrication
of complex composed of a cationic surfactant and
DNA results in material insoluble in water but retaining
properties of the pristine DNA. Films of best quality
were those fabricated form DNA complex with
cetyltrimethylammonium (CTMA). Therefore the most
extensive research has been devoted to DNA-CTMA
for the last decade. Now, this complex is considered
as a flagship of DNA derived materials for application
in photonics [2] and molecular electronics [3]. Among
―practical‖ solvents, DNA-CTMA is soluble only in
some alcohols. That is why it is reasonable to pursue
the quest for new cationic surfactants which would
extend the range of possible solvents for resulting
DNA complexes.
The most exploited form of DNA complexes in organic
electronics are thin films. Up to date there has not
been reported any report describing the kinetics of
their formation. In frame of our work we applied X-ray
diffraction to attack this problem. In addition we proposed two candidates competitive to CTMA regarding
the solubility. Complexes of DNA with benzalkonium
chloride (BA), didecyldimethylammonium chloride
(DDCA) in addition to all solvents suitable for DNADDCA, were also soluble in a range of ketones and
notably in chloroform. The surfactant molecule attaches its cationic head to negatively charged phosphate
groups of DNA strand. In the case of CTMA aliphatic
queue is supposed to stretch out. This queue hampers
solubility in water and enhances in other solvents.
Following such reasoning BA and DDCA surrounding
DNA helix and possessing twice as much queues as
CTMA does, would improve even better the solubility
of DNA in less polar solvents.
DNA sodium salt, extracted from salmon milt and roe,
was purchased from CIST (Chitose Institute of Science and Technology, Japan). Complexes were
manufactured by ion exchange reaction.
The diffraction data were collected in grazing incidence geometry. Experimental procedure was as
follows. A microscope slide, was covered with a DNA
or DNA complex solution and horizontally placed in the
apparatus. A plastic hood was put over it to prevent
too rapid drying. Film of pure DNA was amorphous.
The others featured broad peaks. The intensities were
dependent on a range of factors hard to control. In
order to compare the results backgrounds were subtracted and signals normalized as in Fig.. One can see
there a shift of peaks maxima related to the surfactants nature. Peaks maxima in terms of distance between diffraction planes read as 32,5Å (DNA-CTMA),
29,8Å (DNA-BA) and 30,3Å (DNA-DDCA). The difference between DNA-BA and DNA-DDCA is in range of
experimental uncertainty, but the value calculated for
DNA-CTMA is clearly larger by 2Å. This fact may be
attributed to longer CTMA alkyl queue (16 carbon
atoms in contrast to 11 and 8). The creation of organized structure was a temporally dynamic process like
it is illustrated in Fig. for DNA-CTMA complex structure. A similar behaviour was observed in the case of
the two others DNA-surfactant complexes. Quantitative discussion of this phenomenon would be very
risky unless the samples are prepared exactly in the
same form and geometry and statistically convincing
amount of data collected. Therefore the further analysis is only qualitative.
As shown in mentioned above Fig. the whole transition
process between amorphous and structured phases
56
takes place between only two successive scans,
recorded in 26 and 28 minutes. This suggests existence of a critical concentration of DNA-CTMA inducing
spontaneous macromolecules organization. The transition must have been relatively rapid because the
whole drying lasted for 60 minutes until the diffraction
pattern evolution stopped (taking the same as registered 4 hours later). The visible shift of the peak maximum before final drying may account for initially
adopted liquid crystalline – like structure by DNACTMA complex macromolecules. They align being still
surrounded by the solvent molecules. Upon successive solvent removing they approach each to the other
until the final state is reached.
The proposed here model is supported by dielectric
and ellipsometric studies performed on such films and
will be published elswere [4].

Many extensive efforts have been made recently to fabricate a nanodevice that performs quantum logical operations on the electron spin. In all
nanodevices constructed for this purpose, manipulation of electron spins required an external magnetic
field, which induces a continuous precession of spins
of all the confined electrons. Recently, we proposed a
couple of devices rotating the electron spins without
the external magnetic field [1, 2]. We introduced an
idea and simulated the operation of nanodevices that
perform the single-qubit Haddamard, negation and
phase change quantum gate operations.
In this work we propose and simulate operation of two nanodevices. One of them can be used to
extract from the electron gas single electrons of a well
defined spin state or to spin accumulation, i.e. storage
of electrons of opposite spin orientations in two separate regions of the nanodevice. The second device
serves for the spin read out. It performs a projective
measurement which for a positive answer leaves the
spin in the identified state. The spin read out has the
‖interaction free measurement‖ character since the
electron whose state could be perturbed implies a
negative answer to the question asked. The
nanodevices work without the external magnetic field.
Its operation is controlled by low DC voltages applied
to gates.
The proposed device is based on a planar
heterostructure similar to the one previously used in
Ref. [1].Nanostructure contains a quantum well 10 nm
wide sandwiched between two barriers each of 10 nm
width. The quantum well is separated from the substrate by a 50 nm thick undoped layer. On top of the
upper blocking layer the metal electrodes are deposited. Electron confined in the quantum well forms a
charge ‖cloud‖ distribution that induces an appearance
of positive charge on the lower surface of the metal
electrodes. The electric field stemming from the positive induced charge possesses an in-plane components directed to the center of the electron charge
distribution. The wave function of the electron that is
formed in this way becomes a stable packet that can
move within the quantum well with a constant shape.
When the self focusing effect is strong enough (the
quantum well is close to the electrodes and the dielectric constant is not too large) the scattering properties
of the wave packet become classical, i.e. the electron
backscatters or transfers through a potential defect
with a 0 or 100/% probability. We perform a simulation
of operation of nanodevices by iterative solving of the
time-dependent Schroedinger equation for the single
electron. In every time step electric field is calculated

FIG. 1. The system of electrodes in the nanodevice
that filters out the electrons with spin that is not parallel to the z axis.
The trajectory of an electron that is put in
motion within a quantum well, in which the Rashba
spin-orbit coupling is present, depends on the direction
of its spin. Only the electron whose spin is parallel or
antiparallel to the z axis moves along a straight line
that is parallel to the x axis. The Rashba coupling
induces rotation of the electron spin moving along the
x axis around the z axis, hence for both considered
spin orientations they remain unchanged as the electron moves. However, when the electron wave function contains a contribution of any other spin component the electron trajectory is no longer a straight line.
This effect can be used to filter out the electrons with
spins that are not parallel to the z axis. This operation
can be performed using the nanodevice presented in
Fig. 1. The electron is initially confined under electrode
e1 in the lowest energy state for a given spin orientation. Then, the voltage on electrodes e1 and e2 is
lowered by 0.1mV. The electron is ejected under
electrode e3 and acquires a velocity parallel to the x
axis. The width of e3 electrode and the distance to the
lateral electrodes e4 and e5 is adjusted in a way that
the center of the packet is localized under electrode e3
and the tails of the packet reach the lateral e4 and e5
electrodes. On electrodes e4 and e5 we put a voltage
0.1 mV higher than the one applied to the to e3.

overlap only at the first part of the trajectory when the
electron moves ideally parallel to the x axis. The mean
values of the spin sz (t) are given in Fig. 2(b) by
dashed red (blue) lines for the initial spin up (down)
orientation. The electron spin undergoes precession
when it follows a curved trajectory. Thus one needs to
allow the electron to cross a distance equal to SO
length (for the applied material parameters λSO =
1750nm) after which the initial electron spin orientation
is restored and the trajectory becomes parallel to the z
axis again [see Figs. 4(a) and 4(b)]. Then, the electron
is reflected for the second time from a properly cut top
edge of the e6 electrode. It starts to move parallel to
the x axis and the spin precession is terminated. The
electrons with spin oriented initially up (down) get
under electrode e8 (e7). The electrons can be stored
therein, or taken away to other locations within the
nanodevice.

system of electrodes (grey color) and electron trajectories of spin up (down) marked in red (blue). The trajectory is defined by mean positions of the electron packet. (b) Average spin and position of the electron following the trajectories depicted in (a).
Hence the straight motion is only weakly
stabilized and any deviation of the electron direction
leads to its extraction to one of the lateral electrodes.
In consequence only electrons with spin parallel or
antiparallel to the z axis cross the entire length of the
e3 electrode. Even a small admixture of the spin that
is neither parallel not antiparallel to the z axis leads to
the electron escape to the area below the lateral electrodes(e4, e5). We use the idea of the spin filter of Fig.
1 for a larger nanodevice dedicated to spin accumulation [see Fig. 2(a)]. The spin filter is placed at the
lower left corner of the plot. Only the electrons of spins
parallel or antiparallel to the z axis pass through this
filter and get to the area below the large electrode e6.
The electron trajectory turns by 90 degrees upon
reflection on a 45 degree cut of the e6 electrode for x
=1300 nm. After the electrons trajectory is changed,
the spin-up and spin-down electrons follow different
trajectories: the spin-up electron is deflected to the left
[blue curve in Fig. 2(a)] and the spin-down electron to
the right [red curve in Fig. 2(a)]. Figure 2(b) shows the
time dependence of the mean values of the electron
positions x(t) =< x >, z(t) =< z > and the mean value of
the z component of the spin sz (t) =< sz >. The black
solid curve shows z(t) which is the same for both initial
spin orientations. The red (blue) curve shows x(t) for
the spin oriented initially ‖up‖ (‖down‖). The x(t) curves

Reconstruction of the social network LiveJournal with line graphs
MAŁGORZATA J. KRAWCZYK, KRZYSZTOF KUŁAKOWSKI
Complex Systems Group, Department of Applied Informatics
and Computational Physics
The line graphs are clustered and assortative [1,2].
They share these topological features with some
social networks [3]. We argue that this similarity reveals the cliquey character of the social networks. In
the model proposed here [4], a social network is the
line graph of an initial network of families, communities, interest groups, school classes and small companies. These groups play the role of nodes, and individuals are represented by links between these nodes.
The picture is supported by the data on the LiveJournal network of about 8 × 106 people. In particular,
sharp maxima of the observed data of the degree
dependence of the clustering coefficient C(k) are
associated with cliques in the social network.
exercised by virtually all users and results in a network
of references between these blogs. The vast majority
of blogs regularly read by a person are typically stored
in the form of bookmarks as part of his profile. This
degree of penetration of this behavior is driven by two
main reasons. First, its convenience: it is impractical to
periodically search for a particular blog and check
whether it has new posts. The system automatically
notifies users of the updates to the bookmarked blogs.
Second, to protect their privacy, many users limit
visibility of their posts to the users listed in their list of
friends. Overall, the personal nature of these blogs
and the intimate relationship between their authors
give this network a powerful social aspect. In fact, we
conducted a large number of case studies analyzing
the threads of comments to verify that authors of many
of the connected blogs actually know each other in
person. It is therefore legitimate to refer to the network
of blog bookmarks as social network.
From a given graph G of N nodes and L links, a line
graph G′ can be constructed as follows. A node of G′
is assigned to each link of G. Two nodes of G′ are
linked if and only if the respective links in G shared a
node. In this way, the number N′ of nodes in G′ is
equal to the number L of links in G. The number L′ of
links in G′ depends on the degree distribution P(k) in
G. We have shown numerically in [1], that for three
kinds of networks (Erdős-Renyi networks, the growing
exponential networks and the growing scale-free
networks) the degree distribution of G′ is close to the
degree distribution of G. Basically, a node of degree k
is converted to a clique (fully connected graph) of k
nodes and k(k − 1)/2 links. Further, a link in G joining
nodes of degrees k1 and k2 is converted into a node
in G′ of degree k1 + k2 − 2 which belongs to two
cliques, one of k1 nodes and another of k2 nodes.
Suppose that a new medium of communication LiveJournal - appears in a given social network of
friends, acquaintancies etc. We deduce from what was
told above that the network can be described as a line
graph L(G) constructed on a scale-free graph. It
seems obvious that not all links of the social network
L(G) are established in the frames of LiveJournal. In
particular, the links of LiveJournal are directed, while
those of the social network modelled as L(G) are
undirected (or bidirectional). On the other hand, some
links of LiveJournal do not exist in L(G). Having this in
mind, we propose a qualitative reconstruction of the
structure of LiveJournal from L(G). This reconstruction
should fulfil two conditions: (i) the directionality of links,
and (ii) the limitation of the number of outgoing links,
which appears in the data of LiveJournal.
LiveJournal is a remarkably popular platform for personal blog management, populated with over 8 million
blogs and over 1 million of communities. LiveJournal
was among the first of such platforms available online
and it still remains one of the most active and popular.
Its users manage personal blogs where they share
their daily experiences, political views or discuss news
events. Users can also comment on posts of other
users. Unlike more dynamic systems like Facebook
and Twitter that gained their popularity rather recently,
LiveJournal is not based on personal messages or
applications. Typical LiveJournal post may contain a
significant amount of text with embedded images or
video and may be followed by discussion that in times
exceed thousands of comments.
The reconstruction is made as follows: first, an uncorrelated scale-free network is constructed in the growing process, by the preferential attaching new nodes to
old ones, each with M=5 links. The initial size of the
scale-free network is 10000, then the size of the line
graph is $N$=50000. This selection of N and M does
not influence qualitatively the results. The line graph
represents the structure of a social network, still undirected. Now we have to design a directed graph of
contacts according to LiveJournal. We apply the rule:
older blogs are observed by new blogs attached to
them. According to the construction of the line graph,
this condition can be kept only approximately, as the
order of nodes of the initial scale-free graph does not
The LiveJournal system encourages users to bookmark and monitor particular blogs. This feature is

determines the order of nodes. At the last stage of the
reconstruction, we check nodes of the network one by
one; if the degree k of out-going links of a node exceeds some prescribed value k_m, we remove randomly selected links till the degree is equal to k_m.
qualitative accordance of the plots on assortativity for
LiveJournal with those of the reconstructed network.
Finally, we note that the degree-dependent clustering
coefficient C for the reconstructed network displays a
noised character. This is in some correspondence to
the LiveJournal data. The values of the clustering
coefficient C in LiveJournal for nodes of degree larger
than one are: 0.22 for in-degrees, 0.27 for outdegrees. The term "in-degrees" means here that the
links are included between neighbours of a node, with
links from the neighbours to the node. The same
coefficients are respectively 0.32 and 0.34 for the
reconstructed network.
As noted above, LiveJournal consists of about 8x106
nodes, and a network of this size can hardly be
worked out computationally. Then our reconstruction
remains qualitative, and in particular the value k_m of
maximal possible number of out-going links is to be
chosen arbitrarily. Still our numerical results indicate,
that indeed some characteristics of LiveJournal can be
reproduced by modeling it as a line graph constructed
on an uncorrelated scale-free network. For the reconstructed graph, the degree distribution agrees with the
power law k- only in some range of degree k. The
maximum of P(k) at low degree, is characteristic for all
line graphs [1]. However, both in LiveJournal and the
reconstructed network, the shape of P(k) is the same
for in- and out-links. The difference between these
curves is that the number of out-links is limited from

in the reconstructed network. The ratio of these numbers reveals the deficiency of our computational resources. In our case, the limitation of the out-degree
produces an artificial point at k=k_m.
Aside from suggesting a natural mechanism for the
social network construction, a direct application of this
result appears, if we are interested in a simulation of
the process of spread of information, as alerts or
gossips, in a community. For a large network, the
direct simulation of the state of each particular node
can be burdensome and memory consumming. Instead, we can consider a hypothesis that within the
cliques, the information is shared almost immediately,
when compared with the time of its transmission between the cliques. Such mechanism has been suggested by a number of social science researchers. In
fact, it is implied by the Granovetter's groundbreaking
"strength of the weak ties". If this is the case, it is
possible to simulate the process on a much smaller
network, where nodes represent cliques.
The rule "older is observed" is introduced to our reconstruction as the condition that the link between i
and j is deleted if i<j, but our results are found to be
the same if the condition is i>j. This rule produces the

ATLAS observes striking imbalance of jet energies in
heavy ion collisions
found that it varies as a function of the centrality of the
colliding nuclei, as figure 2 shows, where the fraction
of events with a given asymmetry is plotted versus the
measured asymmetry for four different ranges of
centrality with the most central events in the plot on
the right and the least central on the left.
Dijet asymmetry distributions
The plots show the dijet energy asymmetry for leadion collisions at 2.76 TeV per nucleon pair in the centre-of-mass system and for 7 TeV proton–proton collisions together with the prediction from a Monte Carlo
simulation that does not include interactions between
the jets and the medium. The non-zero asymmetry
shows up for higher centrality values: its distribution
broadens and the mean shifts to higher values. To
confirm the effect, the collaboration performed numerous studies to verify that events with the large asymmetry are not produced by energy fluctuations, background, or detector effects.
The observation of the centrality-dependent dijet
asymmetry by ATLAS has a natural interpretation in
terms of QCD energy loss and may point to a strong
energy loss by the jets in the quark-gluon plasma‖.
The ATLAS collaboration consists of more than 3000
physicists and engineers from 174 universities and
laboratories in 38 countries.
Cracow group (INP PAS and FPACS AGH-UST) has
participated in ATLAS since its very beginning. We
contributed to design and construction of the Inner
Detector (SCT- semiconductor tracker, TRT- transition
radiation tracker) and ATLAS trigger system (for p-p
and heavy ions collisions). These two activities played
an important role in observing the jet quenching phenomenon in Pb-Pb collisions in ATLAS.
Highly asymmetric dijet event
The ATLAS experiment has made the first observation
of an unexpectedly large imbalance of energy in pairs
of jets created in lead-ion collisions at the LHC [1].
This striking effect, which is not seen in proton–proton
collisions, may be a sign of strong interactions between jets and a hot, dense medium (quark-gluon
plasma) formed by the colliding ions.
Concentrated jets of particles are formed in the headon (central) collisions of lead ions at the LHC. The jets
materialize from the hadronization of quarks and
gluons scattered from the protons and neutrons in the
colliding ions. If a quark-gluon plasma is formed in the
collisions of the high-energy ions, then as the jets
materialize they will traverse this hot, dense medium.
In so doing they should lose energy to the medium
through multiple interactions, in a process called jet
quenching.
The jets are most often produced in pairs (dijets)
travelling in opposite directions with equal transverse
energies, but if the jets travel different distances before escaping the medium, then their energies will no
longer be equal. Experiments at the Relativistic Heavy
Ion Collider at Brookhaven observed signs of this
effect in single-particle distributions; however, the
result from ATLAS represents the first direct observation of energy loss by jets, and the first in which the
effect is visible on an event-by-event basis (figure 1).
The excellent angular coverage, segmentation and
energy resolution of its calorimeters make ATLAS well
suited for measuring jets. For this analysis, the collaboration looked at a sample of 1693 events with at least
one jet having transverse energy greater than
100 GeV. Then they quantified the asymmetry in
energy in the dijet system by the ratio of the difference
of the leading and sub-leading jet energies to the sum
of their energies. In studying this dijet asymmetry they

trigger was designed to look at signals in the Inner
Detector and choose collision events based on a
number of hits there. This trigger was further used for
offline performance studies. A majority of Level-1
triggers was based on information which was read out
from the calorimeters and muon spectrometer defining
Regions-of-Interest (RoI) for the High Level Trigger
(HLT). A small fraction of HLT-based triggers was also
part of the heavy-ion trigger menu. Those triggers
were designed to select events enhanced in jets,
muons, photons and electrons. However, they were
running in monitoring mode in 2010. This means a
trigger decision was based on the Level-1 trigger only
but at the same time information from the HLT triggers
was accessible for future performance studies.
A trigger menu is a set of triggers which are designed
to select data for physics and performance studies.
Each physics trigger defines selection criteria for
events to be accepted for storage. In 2010 the LHC
collided lead ions for the first time, therefore it was a
commissioning period also for the ATLAS trigger. Ions
were grouped in bunches (1 bunch in the very first run
up to 129 ones towards the end of the running period)
which resulted in output rates ranging from few Hz to
500 Hz of detector readouts being written to tape. The
trigger menu was designed to rely primarily on Level-1
which is a hardware trigger in ATLAS.
Level-1 was constructed in a way to trigger on the
presence of deposits in interactions indicating devices
with Minimum Bias Trigger Scintillators (MBTS) and
Zero Degree Calorimeters (ZDC) among them. A big
chunk of data has been collected in that way. This
relatively unbiased sample was successfully used to
make the first observation of the energy asymmetry in
dijet events. Also a dedicated so called minimum bias
In the course of the 2010 run it turned out an interaction rate given by the MBTS and ZDC detectors is too
high to be accepted for storage. Therefore, new HLT
based triggers had to be introduced to the menu and
further used to clean up events from beam backgrounds and in consequence to decrease an output
interaction rate for physics analyzes.

A sophisticated neural recording system has been
developed to investigate in detail the retina functionality, in particular the connectivity in the neural circuitry
that transfer signals from individual photoreceptors to
the retinal ganglion cells, which in turn send visual
signals from the eye to the brain. The concept of the
experiment is illustrated in Fig. 1.
A computer generated images are projected through
an optical system onto living retinal tissue placed on
an array of electrodes facing the retina‘s ganglion
cells. The photoreceptors detect the visual stimulus,
convert it into electrical signals, and then send it
through a complex network of interconnected neurons
for further processing. At the bottom of retinal tissue
there is a layer of about 20 distinct types of retinal
ganglion cells, which are responsible for sending
encoded information in the form of series of electrical
spikes to the brain via the optical nerve. In the experiment those signals generated by the ganglion cells are
recorded by a high density microelectrode arrays with
spatial resolution comparable with sizes of individual
ganglion cells.
The purpose of the present study was to investigate
entire input-to-output connectivity and this way to
understand signal processing performed by complex
neuronal circuits in the retina at single-cell resolution.
Visual stimulation of high spatial resolution and a high
spatial resolution recording system were used to
identify the path, type and strength of the functional
input of each cone to each ganglion cell. These data
allow us to more deeply understand neuronal computations in the visual system and ultimately may help us
construct better retinal implants."
For the present study a high-density 519-electrode
array with 30 µm electrode spacing and a recording
system based on Application Specific Integrated Circuits developed for this purpose have been used. The
high-density electrode arrays were developed by the
Particle Physics Experiment Group at the University of

Glasgow and the multichannel integrated circuits to

Group in the Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer

The new technology opens the way to a wide range of
possible biomedical applications, including the devel-
opment of better methods for retinal prosthesis. So far,
the investigations have focused on retinal processing,
but the developed technique can be applied to further
studies, how the complex neuronal circuitry of the
retina develops, and how the brain process the data
received from the retina.

Determination of the isotopic composition of boron in boric acid by
means of the thermal neutron absorption technique
A. BOLEWSKI, M. CIECHANOWSKI, A. KREFT
Department of Applied Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Methods Group
Boron and its compounds are extensively
used in nuclear industry as strong thermal neutron
absorbers. In particular, boric acid (H3BO3) is added to
the primary circuit coolant of pressurized water reactors (PWR) to control the chain reaction. Owing to the
use of the neutron-absorbing coolant instead of neutron-absorbing control rods, the irregularities in the
power density distribution and fuel consumption within
the reactor core can be avoided. Uncontrolled changes of the neutron absorber content would lead to
operational problems, so the continuous monitoring of
its concentration in the reactor coolant is of great
significance. Natural boron is a mixture of 10B and 11B
isotopes with abundances of about 20 % and 80 %,
respectively. Thermal neutron absorption cross sections of 10B and 11B are 3839 b and 0.0055 b, respectively. In this connection, the actual factor affecting the
reactor performance is the concentration of 10B isotope
in the coolant. It is known that the isotopic composition
of natural boron varies significantly depending on the
origin of the raw material. The content of 10B in boric
acid is frequently not known even at the moment of
purchasing (Shul et al., 2007). Therefore, chemical
methods are not adequate for determining the concentration of 10B in the reactor coolant. This resulted in
motivation for the development of measurement systems sensitive specifically to 10B isotope. Techniques
based on the thermal neutron absorption, i.e. on the
same physical principle that is applied to the reactor
control, appeared to be especially suitable for this
purpose. Different versions of such devices designed
for continuous on-line or by-line monitoring the concentration of 10B in the reactor coolant have been
developed and perfected since the beginning of the
PWR technology [1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]. All instruments of
this type require calibration. For the sake of metrological traceability of the measurement system, any calibration procedure should finally refer to a certified
boric acid isotopic reference material like those available from National Institute of Standards (USA) or
Institute of Reference Materials and Measurements
(Belgium). However, because of high cost, the isotopic
reference materials are seldom if ever used directly for
preparation of calibration solutions. Usually some
secondary standard of boric acid is used for this purpose. In any case, the concentrations of 10B in calibration solutions of boric acid must be known.
The aim of this work was to improve the
thermal neutron absorption technique developed
earlier [2, 3] and to apply it to determining the concen-
tration of 10B in water solution of boric acid. A good
deal of attention was given to optimizing the measurement set up and procedure in order to reduce an
uncertainty of assays. Monte Carlo modeling proved to
be useful for optimizing the measurement system. In
particular, computer simulations revealed that the
sample container in the shape of double-walled tube
with external tube made of polyethylene and internal
one made of polytetrafluoroethylene (teflon) offered a
distinct advantage over the sample container wholly
made of polyethylene. With the use of the improved
sample container the concentration of 10B can be
measured within a considerably wider limits, at least
up to 750 ppm. The measurement procedure has been
optimized both in respect of selecting the concentration of 10B in the calibration standard and partition of
the total time allotted to determining the ratio of two
counting rates.
With the use of 1370-cm3 sample, 252Cf neutron source emitting about 2 x 107 neutrons/s and
assuming 30-minute total counting time, the relative
uncertainty (2 δ) of 0.3 % can be attained for determining the concentration of 10B in water solution of boric
acid in the range 200 - 750 ppm. The relative uncertainty steadily increases with decreasing concentration
of 10B, however it is still below 1 % at 20 ppm.
Through the measurement of the concentration of 10B in water solution of boric acid (C) the concentration of 10B in this boric acid (CBA) can be easily
determined. Namely,
C
C BA 
CA
where CA is the concentration (mass fraction) of boric
acid in its water solution.
If boric acid diluted in water is of stoichiometric purity, the measurement of 10B concentration in
this solution (C) will form basis for determining the
isotopic composition of boron in this boric acid. The
following relationship between an abundance (atom
amount fraction) of 10B (AB10) and its concentration in
water solution of boric acid can be derived:
AB10 
CM B11  3( M H  M O )
C A M B10  C M B11  M B10 
where MB10 and MB11 are molar masses of two isotopes of boron whereas MH and MO are molar masses
of hydrogen and oxygen, respectively.
If the actual goal of the measurement is determining the isotopic composition of boron, the con67
centration of 10B in the specially prepared water solution of boric acid should be properly chosen. Provided
that 200 ppm< C < 750 ppm, all three quantities, C,
CBA and AB10 , can be determined with the relative
uncertainties of 0.3 % (understood as 2 δ).

Hyperfine interactions and electronic band structure
in Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1-xCox)2 intermetallics

The RM2-type ferrimagnetic intermetallics consisting of heavy rare earth (R) and transition metal (M) are
widely studied for both their fundamental interest and
for their practical applications. The Terfenol-D
(Tb0.27Dy0.73Fe2) based compounds with various substitutions in the rare earth or transition metal sublattices are intensively tested as strongly magnetostrictive
constituents of composites or laminates with piezoceramics in order to obtain materials with a giant
magnetoelectric effect [1,2].
The ferrimagnetism of these intermetallic compounds results from the coexistence of rare earth 4f5d
electron magnetism and transition metal 3d electron
magnetism [3-8]. The substitution of Fe with another
transition metal in RFe2 type compounds changes the
number n of 3d electrons in the M-sublattice, ipso
facto strongly influences the 3d-band magnetism and
hyperfine interactions [3-8]. Therefore, it was revealing
to study systematically by Mössbauer effect the influence of the rising 3d electron population on the resulting mainly from the 3d-band properties magnetism of
the M-sublattice and especially on the hyperfine interactions in Terfenol-D type compounds with Fe/Co
substitution. Moreover, it was interesting to perform
the electronic band structure calculations using the
FLAPW method, and finally to make a comparison of
experimentally obtained quantities with theoretically
calculated properties of the tested Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1xCox)2 intermetallic series.
Fig.1. The exemplary 57Fe Mössbauer effect transmission spectrum at 4.2K (a), the calculated individual
densities of states (DOS) of 3d electrons for Fe (b), Co
(d) and transition metal M atom (c) as functions of
energy E, all for Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe0.5Co0.5)2 compound
[5,8]. Fermi energy in (b), (c) and (d) corresponds to
zero value.
The polycrystalline materials Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1xCox)2 (x=0,0.1,...,0.9 and 1.0) are characteristic of a
pure cubic, Fd3m, MgCu2-type (C15) crystal structure
[5,8]. The 57Fe Mössbauer effect measurements were
performed at 4.2K using a standard transmission
technique with a 57Co in Pd source [3-8]. The exemplary Mössbauer effect spectrum of the
Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe0.5Co0.5)2 compound is presented in
Fig.1a. Spectra for the whole series are characteristic
of the [100] easy axis of magnetization and were fitted
considering the random distribution of the Fe/Co atoms in the transition metal sublattice. The random
distribution of the Fe and Co atoms introduces different neighbourhoods of the probed iron atom. A particular Fe/Co neighbourhood shows locally its own
subspectrum contributing to the resulting measured
69
Mössbauer effect pattern, and therefore determines its
proper hyperfine interaction parameters.
The probability of particular neighbourhoods and thus
the amplitude of particular subspectra is calculated
using Bernoulli distribution formula. The hyperfine
interaction parameters weighted by the subspectra
amplitudes i.e. an isomer shift, a magnetic hyperfine
field and a quadrupole interaction parameter were
obtained both for the local area and for the sample as
bulk. The isomer shift and the quadrupole interaction
parameter are almost constant throughout the tested
series [5,8]. The weighted average magnetic hyperfine
field μ0Hhf vs. Co content x or an average number n of
3d electrons resembles a Slater-Pauling-type dependence (Fig.2a). The average number of 3d electrons is
calculated using expression n=6(1-x)+7x considering
the stoichiometry of the series. Moreover, local analysis of the magnetic hyperfine fields revealed that local
neighbourhoods of the tested iron atom also create
locall-type dependences similar to a Slater-Pauling
curve [5,8]. Initially weak ferromagnetic type behaviour
of the M-sublattice is present. In this case two 3d
subbands with opposite spin are not filled up [9]. The
magnetic hyperfine field grows with x or n across the
investigated series and the maximum value of the field
is reached at x=0.3 (Fig.2a). At this composition the
filling up of the majority 3d subband by 3d electrons is
terminated. Further Co-substitution introduces a strong
ferromagnetic type behaviour of the M-sublattice [9].
The filling-up of the minority 3d subband continues
and the observed field decreases gradually with x or n.
The electronic band structures of Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1xCox)2 intermetallics were calculated by an ab-initio
self-consistent Full-Potential Linearized Augmented
Plane Waves (FLAPW) method as implemented in the
WIEN2K code [10]. The details of calculation process
are described elsewhere [4,5,8]. Some exemplary
results of the FLAPW calculations are presented in
Fig.1b, c and d. Specifically, the densities of states
(DOS) calculated for Fe, Co (3d electrons) are presented for the Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe0.5Co0.5)2 compound.
Fig.1c also contains stoichiometrically weighted DOS
(M3d) also for Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe0.5Co0.5)2 compound. It
can be added that the Fermi energy corresponds to
zero value.
A qualitative inspection of the filling process of
both 3d-subbands across the series confirmed that the
population in the majority 3d-subband (spin up) increases up to x=0.3 (a region of weak ferromagnetism) and that over this composition rate it is approximately constant (the majority subband is fully
occupied; a region of strong ferromagnetism), while
the minority 3d-subband (spin down) population increases across the whole series [5,8].

Fig.2b presents magnetic moments mFe and mCo,
calculated per Fe and Co atom respectively, and the
stoichiometrically weighted mM magnetic moments per
transition metal atom calculated for the
Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1-xCox)2 series. The mFe and mCo magnetic moments were calculated considering both s,p
electrons and mainly contributing d electrons. The
magnetic moment mM as a function of x or n resembles a Slater-Pauling dependence.

magnetic hyperfine field μ0Hhf and the calculated
weighted magnetic moment mM for the

In Fig.3 the correlation between the experimental
μ0Hhf magnetic hyperfine field and the calculated mM
weighted magnetic moment per transition metal atom
is presented. It is to notice that μ0Hhf field matches well
the average magnetic moment mM of the transition
metal atom separately in regions of the weak and the
strong ferromagnetic type behaviour of the Msublattice. The slope rate μ0Hhf/mM for the weak ferro-
magnetic case is approximately three times higher
then the slope rate of the strong ferromagnetic case.
The presented here results can be helpful both in
band type calculations and for practical applications of
the Terfenol-D-type Tb0.27Dy0.73(Fe1-xCox)2 compounds,
which are to be treated as particulate constituents of
magnetoelectric composites.

Quantification of surface fluxes of CO2 and CH4
plays a key role in assessing atmospheric budgets of
these gases over continental areas. The preferred
approach is a direct flux measurement on the landscape scale via eddy covariance method. However,
direct measurements of surface emissions of CO2 and
CH4 into the atmosphere in densely populated areas
using this method are complicated mostly due to large
heterogeneity of urban land cover. The commonly
used methodology of assessing urban fluxes of CO2
relies on statistics of spatial and temporal distribution
of fuel consumption. Reliability of this method strongly
depends on the completeness and overall quality of
the relevant statistical data. In order to validate the
inventory data, independent methods based on atmospheric measurements have been suggested. This
work presents an attempt to quantify surface fluxes of
CO2 and CH4 in urban environment by combining the
measurements of atmospheric mixing ratios of these
gases with measurements of the mixing layer height
performed with the aid of a sodar system.
The study was performed in Krakow, southern Poland (50.067°N, 19.913°E, 220 m a.s.l.), between May
2005 and May 2009. The presented method of assessing night-time surface fluxes of CO2 and CH4 is
based on parallel measurements of the mixing height
within the Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) and the
atmospheric mixing ratios of these gases measured at
certain elevation above the local ground. The mixing
height within the PBL was monitored using VHS sodar
(Version 3) built by the Krakow Branch of the Institute
of Meteorology and Water Management. The groundbased inversion is mainly observed during night-time.
Usually, it develops after sunset and disappears ca.
1.5-2 hours after sunrise. The analysis of the sodar
data from 1994 to 2008 showed that the ground-based
inversion in Krakow is almost always observed between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. UTC, regardless of seasons.
The measurements of atmospheric mixing ratios of
CO2 and CH4 were performed inside the university
campus, on the western side of the city center, surrounded by recreation area and sport complex. Strong
anthropogenic sources of CO2 and CH4 were absent in
immediate vicinity of the measurement site, thus no
filtering procedure has been applied to the mixing ratio
record. The measurements of CO2 and CH4 mixing
ratios were performed with the aid of automatic GC
system (HP6890) equipped with Ni catalyst and FID
detector. Atmospheric concentrations of trace gases
within the PBL are controlled to a large extent by
intensity of vertical mixing processes [1].
During the day, when strong thermal convection
prevails, CO2 and CH4 emitted from the surface are
diluted in a large volume of well-mixed PBL. Therefore, relatively low concentrations of these gases,
close to the background values typical for the free
troposphere, can be observed during the day. In late
afternoon, after the sunset, the vertical temperature
profile in the atmosphere is changing, largely reducing
the vertical mixing. During the periods of low wind
speed, when advection is small, this leads to accumulation of trace gases emitted from the surface and their
concentrations within the PBL start to increase.
The rate of increase of the mean concentration of
the given trace gas within the mixing layer is controlled
by the actual height of the mixing layer and the net flux
of this gas to this layer . During stable atmospheric
conditions, with low wind speeds, a distinct vertical
gradient of CO2 and CH4 concentration is usually
established within the PBL. As the measurements of
mixing ratios are preformed close to the surface, a
correction factor relating the average increase of the
concentration within the PBL (d<c>/dt) to the increase
of the concentration observed close to the ground
level (ca. 20m) is required. This correction factor was
calculated using an analytical dispersion model [2].
The value of the correction factor derived for stablestratified PBL and the aerodynamic surface roughness
of a big city (one to a few meters) was equal 6.5. After
applying the correction factor k, the formula for calculating surface fluxes of CO2 and CH4 reads as follows:
h dcsurf
(1)
 Fin
k dt
where:
h – PBL height
k – correction factor
csurf – concentration of CO2 (CH4) at the measurement
height
72
Fin – surface flux of CO2 (CH4) to the atmosphere.
The surface fluxes of CO2 and CH4 were calculated using eq.(1) for late evening and night hours,
when an increase of the measured mixing ratios of
these gases was observed. The calculations were
preformed under the following assumptions: (i) the
CO2 and CH4 emitted into the atmosphere during the
periods for which calculations were performed, was
accumulating within the PBL (no transport between the
PBL and the free troposphere), (ii) only the nights with
wind speed below 1m/s were chosen to fulfill the
closed-system assumption (no significant advection
adding or removing trace gases from the atmosphere
below PBL within the city), (iii) major removal processes of CO2 and CH4 are not active at that time, (iv)
the mean concentration of CO2 and CH4 within the
PBL is derived from vertical concentration profiles
calculated using analytical dispersion model. The nightime surface fluxes of CO2 and CH4 obtained with the
procedure outlined above were subject to two-step
data selection scheme. In the first step, only values
representing the nights with the linear regression
coefficient calculated for the increase of CO2 and CH4
concentration R2>0.8 were selected. In the second
step, the values of surface CO2 and CH4 fluxes representing the nights with standard deviation of the mean
PBL height greater than 30 m were removed from the
remaining dataset. Subsequently, the monthly mean
values of the CO2 and CH4 surface fluxes were calculated. For some months, the adopted data selection
procedure significantly reduced the number of available data, leading substantial increase of the uncertainty of the monthly mean value. Figure 1 a and b present
mean monthly fluxes of CO2 and CH4, respectively,
calculated with the aid of the procedure outlined
above.

Fig. 1. The monthly means of surface night-time fluxes
of CO2 (a) and CH4 (b) in Krakow for the period May
2005 -May 2009.
The calculated mean monthly surface fluxes of
carbon dioxide (Fig.1a) reveal distinct seasonality, with
a minimum of ca 2 mmol m-2 h-1 occurring during winter and a maximum of ca. 20 mmol m-2h-1 in summer.
This strong seasonality is most probably induced by
seasonally modulated biospheric component, originating from soil respiration. The measured surface fluxes
of CO2 during summer were comparable with the soil
respiration fluxes obtained from regular observations
carried out in Southern Poland region between 1998
and 2000 using the enclosure method. The reported
monthly mean respiration fluxes of CO2 for summer
months (MJJA) for three typical areas (grassland,
mixed forest and agricultural field) were equal
11.5±0.2, 19.8±0.4 and 13.4±0.2 mmol·m-2·h-1, respectively [3].The mean CO2 flux representing summer months (MJJA) calculated using eq.(1) is equal
15.6±0.9 mmol·m-2·h-1. It lies within the range of respiration CO2 fluxes quoted above. This points to a dominant role of the biospheric component in the derived
night-time fluxes of CO2 in the investigated urban
setting, at least during the summer months.
Contrary to the CO2 flux, the calculated surface
fluxes of CH4 (Fig. 1b) do not reveal any distinct seasonality. The mean value of the CH4 flux calculated for
the whole analysed period (May 2005 – December
2008) is equal 97.2±5.4 µmol m-2h-1. Multiplying the
mean CH4 flux by the surface area of the city
(326.8km2), one arrives at the total mean emission of
methane into the atmosphere in Krakow in the order of
(6.2±0.4)x106m3 yr-1. Leakages of the city gas network
are thought to be the main source of this methane.
This has been confirmed by carbon isotope analyses
of atmospheric methane and the methane being distributed within the network. The carbon isotope composition of methane emitted by the hypothetical methane source in Krakow, derived from carbon isotope
analyses of atmospheric methane and the twocomponent mixing model, is equal ca. -54.2‰ [4].
Measurements of carbon isotopic composition of
methane present in the city gas yield the value of 54.4±0.6‰ which is virtually identical with the isotopic
signature of the hypothetical methane source within
a
73
the city. The leakages of CH4 estimated by Kuc et al.
for the period 1996-1997 [4] were in the order of
2.15x107m3 yr-1, a significantly higher value than that
derived in the present study. This apparent reduction
of CH4 leakages is most probably linked to major
improvements of the distribution infrastructure of the
city gas network in the course of the last decade, as
testified by the gas operator.
