Visitors from Malaysia

On 13 and 14 September, scientists from universities based in Malaysia – Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi MARA Pahang – visited the Centre of Polymer Systems. The guests included Professor Saiful Amri Mazlan, who is a world-leading expert in the research on and development of magnetorheological elastomers: systems that change their stiffness, in a controlled manner, in the presence of an external magnetic field. These materials are used in various damping applications, magnetic sensors and actuators.
Research on these materials is carried out at the Centre of Polymer Systems as well; headed by doc. Michal Sedlačík, the local scientists have already achieved several joint publications in prestigious technical journals.
The purpose of this visit was to further expand international cooperation in the form of joint projects on new topics as well as facilitate the mobility of researchers,” says doc. Michal Sedlačík.
Conversation topics included, for example, the development of 3D printing technology for magnetorheological elastomers which will make it possible to define complex internal structures with potential applications in soft robotics.
“We also discussed in detail the possibilities of cooperating in research on more subjects, including research on the fatigue behaviour of rubber materials – i.e. those that are definitely in the focus of the commercial sector in the Zlín region,” adds doc. Sedlačík.
