The technology of dry coating of microparticles
with use of a spout-fluid bed apparatus
The key element of the technology is use of a device for coating fine particles from A, B and C groups in accordance with
Geldart’s classification with micropowders and nanopowders. It
works in a spout-fluid bed system with diluted bed circulating inside. The apparatus enables dry multi-layer coating of particles
of a diameter less than 1 mm, at a low temperature and over a
short time (from 1 minute), without use of any solvent. During
coating, the dry powder is fed at a constant flow rate, which guarantees obtaining of homogeneous coat of the final product. The
fast circulating diluted bed allows coating the microparticles with
nanopowders without excessively blowing them away from the
column. The technology enables obtaining a high quality, homogenous and loose product without any agglomerates.
application
The technology may be applied for production of medicines, in
particular at the final stage of manufacturing of drugs containing substances sensitive to water and high temperatures, or
characterised by delayed or prolonged release in the form of the
microparticle cores or microcapsules featuring a coating of controlled properties. The device could also be used in the food industry, agrotechnology and for production of chemical fertilizers
and plant protection chemicals with delayed or prolonged release.

The terahertz technique
The terahertz band covers the spectral region from 0.3 to 10
THz (10 - 300 cm-1). The terahertz technology involves such elements as sources of terahertz frequency radiation, manipulation
of radiation, and its detection. The terahertz spectrometer is
a source operating in the time-domain arrangement (THz-TDS).
At the same time, the THz-TDS setup ensures an effective detection of a terahertz wave. The setup is based on two semiconductor LT-GaAs chips operating as both a THz source and a detector.
A femtosecond laser is applied as an actuating and sampling device. The terahertz wave is carried by parabolic off-axis mirrors.
In the numerical section of the device, the signal is processed to

Laser-fiber vibrometry
The multipoint fiber vibrometer offers a possibility to measure
vibration parameters (speed, displacement, acceleration of a
fluctuating surface and spectral analysis) of N points simultaneously. N ITU laser diodes operate as transmitters (1550 nm range).
The laser beams are split into reference and operating signals.
All reference signals are frequency Bragg shifted. The scattered
signals are multiplexed and mixed with reference signals forming
N heterodyne signals at N wavelength. The fiber amplifier EDFA
increases the amplitude of heterodyne signals and after demultiplexing, all wavelengths are split and coherently detected

Assessment of lossy sound compression quality
Assessment of lossy and lossless sound compression quality is
based on objective and subjective research. The former is performed with use of software which applies the technology of
modelling of psychoacoustic phenomena, resulting in obtaining
a yardstick for deformation of the lossy compressed signal, however in the domain of perception, i.e. where one is provided with
information if given deformation is perceived and to what extent.
Subjective research is a classic approach to audio signal quality
assessment with participation of a sufficiently large group of listeners (experts). It is conducted in the form of aural tests, whose
results are subject to comprehensive statistical processing.

Phonoscopy and automatic speaker verification
Phonoscopy is a branch of criminology involving areas which
include research into recorded spoken voice, identification of
people participating in a recording, drawing conclusions about
the personality, origins and characteristics of unidentified persons on the basis of their continuous speech, their emotional
www.weka.pwr.wroc.pl
state, illnesses and malfunctions of their speech organs. One
of the most important problems is identification of a person
performed with use of subjective methods, i.e. visual and spectrographic methods or language and measurement methods,
and also by means of objective methods, i.e. with use of the
technique of automatic voice verification. Subjective voice verification is rarely used, most notably in identification of crime
perpetrators. Application of automatic voice verification procedures widens the range of possible use beyond the area of
criminology; it is also applicable to access control, authorisation
and identity confirmation, identity confirmation during bank or
trade transactions performed remotely, on the phone, online
and in many other areas more. Automatic speaker verification
procedures apply techniques based on linear prediction, neural
networks and hidden Markov models. Research into creation
of the optimal algorithms that would enable one to identify a
person on the basis of their voice with full certainty, regardless
of their way of speaking, noise or encoding system, is being conducted in this field of knowledge.
application
Automatic speaker verification belongs to biometric, objective
methods of identification of persons and allows implementation
of systems that enable access by authorised persons to restricted
information stored in computer systems, remote verification of
speakers or a contractor, controlling devices by voice or by authorised persons as well as identification of speakers for court and

DSP processors, programmable systems
Application of DSP processors has enabled miniaturisation and
mobility of numerous tools beyond military industry, from controlling right through telecommunications to multimedia information and entertainment tools, creating many markets of
a great financial potential. Technology is developing in many
directions, thus making choices of applications more and more
difficult with the rapid development of multicore technology solutions. On the other hand, programmable systems enable implementation of a given conception into a device, i.e. production of
a processor featuring a structure dedicated to applications in the
branch field of real time digital signal processing.
application
Potential applications of DSP processors lie within the scope of
techniques requiring fast decision making when using mathematical models of phenomena, controlling techniques, driving units,
communication, medical and measurement equipment, optical
measurements and inspection, fast supervision as well as processing of large streams of data (visual techniques, image compression/
decompression techniques). In the case of programmable systems,
potential applications apply to implementation of the following systems: chip-located (e.g. processors, peripherals, dedicated application components), digital paths of parallel signal processing, digital
transmission systems as well as digital radar systems.

Tests of electromagnetic compatibility. Measurements and professional assessment of electric
energy
Tests performed at the Laboratory of Electromagnetic Compatibility in Electrical Power Engineering should be divided into two basic
groups:
I - Elecro-energetic objects, such as electrical switching stations media terminals and access points.
Supply voltage parameters are checked i.e.: frequency, voltage
value and changes, rapid changes of voltage, troublesome flicker,
supply voltage dips, short and long voltage supply breaks. Voltage
unbalanceas well as harmonics and interharmonics; analyses of
current and power.
II - energy receivers of phase current up to 16 A.
Tests of interference emission are performed (measurement of
harmonic emissions of the current, voltage fluctuations and flicker
caused by energy receivers) as well as resistance of receivers for
voltage dips and short breaks in supply: changes of voltage and
changes of frequency.
application
The laboratory performs standards compliance testing, in accordance with normalized procedures or procedures recommended
by standards: PN-EN 50160; PN-EN 61000-2-4, PN-EN 61000-3-2,

61000-4-13 PN-EN 61000-4-14, PN-EN 61000-4-28.
Electric energy supplied to receivers should meet quality parameters provided in normative and legal documents. The laboratory
has at its disposal instruments allowing monitoring and analysis
of electricity quality and the impact of the receiver on the quality
of electricity in the access point.
Meeting the demands of norms harmonized with the electromagnetic compatibility directive for receivers of electricity constitutes the grounds for labelling products with the CE mark. The

Faculty of Geoengineering,
Mining and Geology
In 1968, in response to the growing requirements of the extraction industry, the Department of Mining was established at the
Wrocław University of Technology. The natural consequence of the
interdisciplinary character of the research conducted was a change
of the name to the Department of Geoengineering, Mining and Geology, which took place in 2004.
The scientific research services of the Department cater for the
current needs of the strong economic environment connected with
the domestic and regional raw material industry. The scientific potential and laboratory facilities enable the Department to operate
for the benefit of the transfer of research work to the economy in
the fields of mining, mechanization and automation of mining, geology, geotechnology, economics, geodesy, geocomputer science,
mineral engineering and work safety.
The Department boasts the Certified Belt Conveyor Laboratory and
the Certified Laboratory of Work Safety. The beneficiaries of the
Department’s research work are KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., brown
coal mines, numerous extraction industry companies from the
whole country as well as manufacturers of belt conveyors.

The Faculty of Computer Science and Management boasts over
almost 45 years of tradition. It was the first faculty of this teaching profile among Polish technical universities. Since the beginning of its existence, it has effectively co-operated with economic
entities. These traditions are continued especially now when
initiating various forms of co-operation between business and
science has become an obvious need. The work of the Faculty research and expert teams encompasses also participation in projects, preparation of documents which are of strategic importance
to the development of the region, such as: Strategy of Energetics
Development in Lower Silesia and Regional Innovation Strategy
for Lower Silesia. Some other examples of various forms of cooperation in the fields of computer science and management are
as follows: application software testing, using utility software in
classes, lectures for students run by various companies’ employees, dedicated courses developed by various companies’ employees, student internships and apprenticeships, research and expertise, projects performed by student teams, joint projects, projects
developed on request, Forum of IT Companies, organization of
joint events, conferences, competitions, e.g. Lower Silesian Team
Programming Competition, PM Excellence Forum, etc., also presentations of companies.
The faculty educates specialists in three fields: Computer Science,
Systems Engineering and Management. There is also a wide offer
of postgraduate courses, e.g. Polish-American Business School
offering Executive MBA courses.

Application of semantic metadata to analyse
data from new perspectives
The technology was demonstrated with the example of a WWW
browser featuring analytical capabilities, a so-called “analyzer.” The
application allows the following:
• correlating query results with regard of the context (perspective adopted),
• determining coherence and compatibility of the resulting
collection on the basis of set relevance thresholds,
• grouping collection documents,
• improving document ranking primarily based on term
weighing.
Correlation of results from the perspective of a given DAC node in
the “analyzer” results in narrowing or broadening of a given query’s
results by means of facet application (hyperlinks filtering results
with the number of target results, known e.g. from the left column
of allegro.pl). Facets are created for authors and tags, i.e. A and C
nodes. D Nodes are visualized in a traditional way as a document
title (post) list with content fragment (summary) and metadata:
author, update date, blog where the post originates from and associated tags (analogous to search results e.g. in Google). Coherence analysis is performed by regulating connection relevance
thresholds. As far as compatibility is concerned, by means of an
applicable scrollbar, the relevance threshold can be set between notions (tags). As for coherence, similar threshold is set for groups
of authors.
Document grouping is performed by means of DAC graph grouping. Since grouping influences the ranking, it must be performed
for each result collection of a search/analysis.
Nowadays, by means of URI identificator starting with ‘http://’ we
can refer not only to WWW documents, but also humans, products, or events. Each time we create a link, an association is created. Even when we mark people as our friends on FB or films as
our favourite, we create associations, i.e. Linked Data.
application
WWW analysis can be performed on many levels. In the case of
application of the analysis method to reranking, in order to enable
the performance of the experiment in practice, it was limited by

various assumptions. The choice of 3 types of objects as WWW
representatives is already a limitation. Currently, on WWW, one
can find associations not only among documents, authors and
notions. It seems reasonable to take into account events (time
aspect), objects, projects, companies, groupings and other issues
recognizable by means of URI.

Large scale image database search is based on measurement of
image similarity. Visual similarity measurement facilitates high
efficiency detection of identical or almost identical fragments of
many images. It also allows building effective search engines of
visual content.
Visual similarity measurement is based on two mechanisms:
similarity measurement of fragments of images and geometrical
analysis of similarity. One of similarity measurement techniques
is a method based on the so-called bags of words. A bag of words
is a histogram (in most cases one dimensional) representing a
single image constructed from many visual words. A visual word
is a single vector of features representing a fragment of an image, subjected to lossy compression to a single number. This
number represents the group number (cluster) and is a result of
grouping vectors which represent images. Basic measurement
of image similarity amounts to the measurement of histogram
similarity. The other technique referred to is based on a variety
of image transformations. The basic and the most often applied
transformation is affine transformation of two images. On similarity analysis, this transformation is automatically reproduced so
that the images subject to transformation can match each other
as closely as it is possible.

Automatic speech recognition
Automatic speech recognition is a new quality in humancomputer contact. It allows natural information input to the
computer making it possible for the user to simultaneously
perform other manual activities. Unfortunately, generally accessible software does not support speech recognition in Polish or
it is impossible to apply it to certain domains of uses. Hence the
need of individual solutions suited to the needs of the user and
integration with the user’s software. The Department employees’ experience in this field facilitates quick creation of speech
recognition systems by means of available (paid and free of
charge) tools and their integration with the user’s software.

Faculty of Mechanical
and Power Engineering
The Faculty of Mechanical and Power Engineering is one of these
faculties which have developed together with the Wrocław University of Technology since the very beginning of its existence. At the
beginning, the faculty’s mission was educating mechanical engineering staff to build and operate heating equipment in professional
and industrial power industry. Our faculty graduates built the first
Polish power plants: “Turów”, “Bełchatów” and “Dolna Odra”.
A very distinctive feature of the faculty is its intensive co-operation with industry which facilitates one’s development meeting the
expectations of the job market. A good example here is the development of the Mechanical Engineering and Machine Construction
Course to respond to the market’s needs in the areas of process
apparatus, refrigeration and aviation engineering. The growing role
of environmental protection in power engineering and in civilization development as well as significant scientific and technological
achievements in this field contributed to the establishment of an
individual course of study – Power Engineering. The first graduates completed their studies and left the university walls in 2008.
The faculty finds it especially important to provide a high level of
education. In 2006 and later also in 2011, Mechanical Engineering
and Machine Construction courses obtained a positive opinion of
the State Accreditation Commission. In 2010, Power Engineering
field of study obtained a positive opinion of the State Accreditation
Commission. Thanks to the fact the curricula in the courses combine mechanical engineering issues with heat-flow phenomena,
which is uncommon at other Polish and European universities, the
graduates of the Faculty of Mechanical and Power Engineering are

Purification of boiler fumes from gas contamination (SO2, NOx, CO2) and mercury using the semidry counterflow reactor
Fumes from the boiler will be purified from the following contaminations: SO2, NOx, Hg by sprinkling with water (or waste wa-
ter) in the reactor. The product created as a result of cleaning, in
the form of fine particles made of CaSO3 ∙ ½ H2O, Ca(NO3)2 and
Hg(NO3)2 molecules, will be removed with fly ash in the electrofilter (or any other high-efficiency duster). It can be expected that
lower temperature and in consequence smaller stream of fume
volume will increase the dust-cleaning efficiency of the electrofilter and Ca(OH)2 created as a result of water (or waste water)
injection to fumes flowing through the reactor will partly remove
CO2 from the fumes.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was established as one
of the first two faculties of the Wrocław University of Technology, which had just started its activity in 1945.
The faculty is the educational institution’s fundamental scientific and didactic organizational unit and it acts fully independently in creating its image in the field of scientific activity and
co-operation with industrial companies and economic units
both in Poland and abroad.

Laser cutting technology of polymeric materials.
Temperature measurement technology
The technology applies laser radiation for cutting, drilling and heating all types of thermoplastic, chemically hardening and thermo
hardening plastics. The solution developed can also be applied for
cutting composites produced from plastics, metals and non-metals: ceramics, wood, natural fabrics, leather etc. An advantage of
the laser cutting technology lies in improving the quality of cutting
plastics by reduction of partial melting of the edge of the material undergoing the cutting process and enabling cutting of plastics
and their composites without polluting the environment with toxic
gases and without ignition of the material.
Temperature indices are used to define and control the temperature range of operation of machines’ and devices’ parts which work
in difficult conditions, e.g. in contact with loose materials such as
coal, ash, cinders or materials fired in high temperature and in contact with gases, e.g. exhaust fumes, vapour or liquids. The temperature indicator may be installed in elements which are in motion,
e.g. rotating elements. By controlling the indicators, a maximum
temperature of operation of machines and devices elements can
be inferred, and thus it is possible to determine material changes
which occurred in the course of their operation, without the need
for performing additional material tests.

Microwave heating, thanks to its specific nature,
constitutes an alternative to traditional, conventional
methods, which deserves particular attention …
Scientific Research and Technology Offer
Production of functional materials using the
zol-gel method and testing the morphology and
crystalline structure of preparations
faculty of mechanical engineering
The offer’s focus is production of nanomaterials (powders/coatings) with use of the zol-gel method, which guarantees low
price and mild production conditions. The particles being manufactured may be characterized by biological, magnetic and
optical activity. In order to prevent nanoparticles aggregation,
they may be placed on SiO2/TiO2 carriers or added to the layer of oxides. The carrier powder with active nanoparticles may
be easily used as a filler which provides a product with the required properties, e.g. of a biological or magnetic nature. Such
powders may be added both to fabrics or packaging and to paint
coatings, improving their usability and providing them with antiseptic and self-purification properties.
The offer also includes morphological and structural profiling of
substances used in industry. Applying X-ray diffraction enables
fast description and control of the quality of materials as well as
determination of technological processes’ efficiency.
Raman spectroscopy enables quick identification of substances,
even in low concentration as well as an analysis of pollution and
defects.
Scanning microscopy is used for testing the surface morphology,
which enables checking correctness of processes.
The specific surface analyser makes it possible to determine the
size and distribution of pores of materials involved in pharmaceutical, electronic and other industries.
58
application
Due to the possibility to controlling the zol-gel process and thus
obtaining various forms of products (powders, layers), nanomaterials produced this way may be widely used. They may be used in the
powder form as fillers, providing the product with required characteristics. In the form of thin layers they may be applied directly to
the surface, even featuring a complex shape, without the necessity
to carry out complicated processes, such as chemical vapour deposition. Thin layers prepared this way, depending on their chemical
composition, provide surfaces with anticorrosive, catalytic or biological properties.
The research carried out in the Laboratory of Zol-Gel Materials and
Nanotechnology may be applied in particular in the areas which
require fast assessment of product quality. Another application involves defining chemical purity of products and process substrates.
Knowledge of morphology and specific surface of preparations is
necessary in particular in pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, electronic
and chemical industries, for production of catalysts and construction materials.

Reverse Engineering
Reverse Engineering consists in digitalization of real-world objects into their 3D computer models. Resulting from those actions are digital images of measured objects (usually as clouds
of 3D points) – such data may serve as a basis for design, computer analysis and simulation or just comparisons of physical
objects with their computer models (inspection). A digital model
obtained may also be used to directly produce an object with use
of computer controlled manufacturing technology. Our unique
technological potential enables capturing and processing geometric data from a broad range of physical objects, both natural
and artificially made.
Virtual Reality

Lean Manufacturing
Lean Manufacturing is a concept of process organization which
due to elimination of wastage enables shortening the time from
placing an order to product shipment, from an idea for a product
to starting production and from investment to return on it. Lean
Manufacturing stems from industrial practices of Toyota, whose
excellent economic results led to popularising this idea. The distinctive characteristics of Lean Manufacturing are, among others,
work standardization, JIT (Just In Time) supply system, incorporating quality into the process or a single piece flow or pull system. Lean Manufacturing supports the process of wastage elimination and allows production to be synchronised in value streams
using pull system and takt time.
Research outcomes and the team’s experience are put to use in
co-operation with companies and the Lean Enterprise Institute

Laser macro- and micro-processing technology
for manufacturing
Laser technologies for manufacturing are more and more widely
used in cutting, welding, hardening, powder cladding, purifying,
marking and other processes. Metals, plastics, ceramics, glass are
processed in macro- and micro-scale offering new technological
opportunities.
Due to various features of materials and specific technological requirements, in order to achieve optimum process result we carry
out research into selection of optomechatronic components and
optimization of processing parameters. They require interdisciplinary knowledge and equipment and include optics, thermics,
flows, material structures and characteristics as well as controlling devices and processes.

Laser cladding technology
Laser cladding technology is used to create precise functional
coatings on the objects being processed or to repair items which
underwent destruction or wear. The laser beam used during the
process is an energy source necessary to melt additional material and create coating on the item being processed. Using additional material in the form of powder allows cladded layers to
be created from a wide range of materials including ceramics,
metals and metallic alloys: iron, cobalt, nickel, titanium, rhenium, aluminium, copper and many more. The CAMT laboratory’s
equipment enables production of macro- and microscopic scale
cladded layers.

Oscillation measurement and analysis
The range of research includes defining dynamic features of machine tools and robots as well as bridge structures. In order to
measure oscillations and enforcing forces, multi-point systems
are used which enable determination of dynamic characteristics
of machines when they are excited by work cycle, percussive force
and various types of exciters. The software which we have at our
disposal allows carrying out advanced analysis of oscillations as
well as result visualisation and archiving.

Plastics injection is a cyclic process of manufacturing products
from polymer materials which involves melting the material (inserted into the machine most often in granules, chips or flakes,
in rare cases powder) and then injecting such warmed material
into an injection mould, where the material is solidified, adopting the shape of the forming cavity. The injection process is applied in production of elements characterised by complex geometry and elements which require precision in terms of shape and
dimensions, as well as products of simpler shapes and smaller
sizes, which cannot be obtained with use of other processing
techniques.

Optical measurements, optical tweezers
Two kinds of interferometric systems are used for measurements. The first one is the classic Mach-Zender system, while
the other is an optical vortex interferometer, which can be set
up in a variety of ways. With use of the optical vortex interferometer, two or three parameters can be measured simultaneously
with high resolution (e.g. the angle of rotation can be measured
against two perpendicular axes, independently). Measurements
offered include the following: wavefront geometry, properties of
birefringent media (also dichroic ones) and small rotation angles.
The compact polarymeter is a small device which can be used for
measuring, in one single shot, of three characteristics of birefringent media i.e. the elipticity and azimuth angle of outgoing light
and the phase delay between the fast and slow optical axes. The
resolution is relatively small (amounting to 2o-3o) but the simplicity of analysis and the one-shot measurement make it possible to
measure media of fast changing characteristics.

Faculty of Microsystem
Electronics and Photonics
The faculty originated from the Department of Electronics, which
came into being in 1954 at the Faculty of Communications of the
University of Technology. In 1968 the Faculty of Communications
changed its name to become the Faculty of Electronics, while
the Department of Electronics, together with the Department of
Electronic Components and Circuits as well as the Department of
Mechanical Constructions, then undergoing establishment, were
merged into the Institute for Electronic Technology. In the subsequent years, the institute was reorganised due to the rapid development of microsystems technology to finally transform on 1 January 2001 into a separate faculty by the University’s Vice Chancellor’s
ruling. So far, the Faculty of Microsystem Electronics and Photonics
(W-12) has been the University’s youngest faculty.
The faculty offers two courses: Electronics and Telecommunication
(1st and 2nd degree studies) and Mechatronics (1st degree studies).
The faculty also runs a 3rd degree course in Electronics.
The faculty focuses on research and technical activity within areas
pertaining to modern technologies of producing electronic microand nanocircuits as well as optoelectronic circuits and the use of
these technologies in other fields. As a research unit operating
within these spheres, it enjoys a high rank in the academic world.
According to the parametric assessment conducted in the years
2005-2010, the faculty is a 1st class unit (currently class A). Additionally, in both the assessments in the G5 uniform units group
„Electrical engineering, automatics, electronics and information
technologies”, the Faculty of Microsystem Electronics and Photonics was given rank 1 among the basic organisational units of higher
education institutions.

Lab-on-chip instruments for electrophoretic DNA
analysis
Lab-on-chip technology utilizes the newest microengineering
solutions and allows development of miniature devices for quick,
high efficiency analysis of DNA. Glass lab-chips with capillary
flow channels allow automatic transport, dosing, separation and
extracting DNA in volumes amounting to single nanolitres with
use of electroferetic techniques as well as they make it possible
to detect DNA with the high sensitivity fluorimetric method. The
results of analyses are represented in real time and recorded in
a digital data base. Glass lab-chips utilize standard biochemical
reagents and are intended for multiple use.
The chemical industry’s increasing interest in microreaction technology is due to a significant reduction of the costs of chemical
plant construction, start-up and maintenance. Implementation of
a new chemical reaction on an industrial scale - on a “macro” scale
- first requires development of a small test chemical plant and
then making a large financial commitment to the construction of
a large plant - a chemical production facility. On a “micro” scale, it
is possible to skip the test system, while the cost of transferring
the chemical process from the laboratory phase to production, to
put it in simple terms, does not exceed the cost of a few/several
identical micro reactors.
application
Conducting chemical reactions on a micro scale is steadily gaining
in importance. Testimony to that is the growing market of microfluidic chip manufacturers, including chemical microreactors (e.g.
Mikroglas Gmbh, Little Things Factory LTF, Microchip, Ehrfeld), as
well as companies that offer development of chemical systems
with use of microreactors (e.g. the company Microinnova Austra,
LONZA Italy). A steady increase in educational activity is taking
place as well, which may be exemplified by the chemical plants
at the University of Cambridge in Prof. Steven Ley’s team, or the
educational systems offered by companies such as Mikroglas of
Mainz, Germany.

application
Analysis of DNA with lab-chip instruments allows a significant increase in the efficiency of DNA tests, most notably making it possible to improve sensitivity and shorten analysis times, decrease
sample and reagent consumption, automate the test process and
minimize probability of human error. Compared to commonly applied plate instruments for electroforetic DNA analysis, the developed lab-on-chip instruments’ characteristics include ten-fold
higher efficiency of DNA separation, approximately 80-fold shorter testing time as well as a higher degree of analysis automation.
