The research aims to manufacture silicon solar cells and improve the efficiency by deposition of nano-films of TiO2, ZnO , enhancing the efficiency of the solar cell using nanotechnology. Silicon cells were fabricated using the pulsed laser deposition technique with different thicknesses and a constant temperature of 300 ˚C and a laser pulse (250) using laser energy (700,800, and 900mJ). The results showed that nano-films (TiO2, (ZnO) enhanced the efficiency of the solar ce.

In addition to scientifically evaluating the dissertation by Prof. Dr. Ali Munther Mustafa/ University of Technology/ Department of Production and Minerals Engineering, and Prof. Dr. Haider Hassan Jaber/ University of Babylon/ College of Materials Engineering, and linguistically by a Asst. Prof. Dr. Jamal Jalal Daoud/ University of Technology/ Department of Materials Engineering
After the discussion committee recorded its observations on the thesis, which were in between explanation and correction, the student's defense of her thesis, and the end of the discussion, the committee decided to evaluate the thesis, and decided to grant the student a master's degree with a Pass Grade
The thesis aimed to study the effect of coating layer on biological behavior and bacterial activity of Magnesium implant, as well as to study the effect on surface properties, wettability and ion release rate of Mg ions. Surface pretreatment methods was used for Magnesium implants which are (Laser pretreatment and Chemical pretreatment), and then the surface was coated with composite layer (Polycaprolactone matrix reinforced with MgO Nano-powder with different percentages (0.5%, 0.75%, 1%). The result was that the use of surface pretreatment methods improved the surface properties and enhanced the adhesion between the coating and the substrate. Also, the use of coating material (PCL + MgO Nano-powder) enhanced the biological activity and anti-bacterial effect of magnesium implant, in addition to reduce the ion release rate.

The Polymeric and Petrochemical Materials Engineering branch in the Materials Engineering Department, headed by Ms. Lec. Dr. Manar A. Najim, in the presence of Lec. Prof. Dr. Alaa A. Mohamed and Lec. Dr. Sura S. Ahmed, went with the third-stage students on a scientific visit on Wednesday, 3/5/2023, to the Nature Paints Factory for the production of dyes Ltd., where they learned about the methods of producing fatty, water-based, and rust-resistant dyes. A modern technology was also seen in the production of dyes in the form of powders, which are sprayed electrically on the surface to be painted with, and then treated thermally to become dyes with strong adhesion and resistance to scratching. Also, modern automated machines (robots) used in the production of plastic cans used to fill dyes of various sizes were seen.
