Aim of the mission
The goal of the project conducted during the STSM stay in Ljubljana was to develop an algorithm for determining the number of layers in graphene and MWCNT samples using XRD data analysis, and to create a web application that could be used by anyone to obtain processed results on the distribution and number of layers in these samples. The algorithm was developed using Python and its common modules, and was split into two stages, with the second stage still in progress. The algorithm requires a high number of combination calculations, which can be time-consuming. To make the model more
Summary of the Results
The Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana is a top research institution in central Europe. A visit there would benefit my STSM goals within COST Action CA17139, leading to collaboration, ongoing work, and paper submissions with applicable results. This could also strengthen scientific and economic links among partner countries.
