P2 Fisika Lipi Cooperates with Engineering Faculty of UMY


Engineering Faculty of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) encourages the students to foster research and sciences. Thus, the faculty cooperated with Research Center for Physics of Indonesian Institute of Sciences (P2 Fisika LIPI) by signing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Tuesday (12/4) at Stadium General of Engineering Faculty of UMY.

The MoU signing was attended by chairperson of Research Center for Physics of Indonesian Institute of Sciences, Dr. Bambang Widiyatmoko, M.Eng. and Dean of Engineering Faculty of UMY, Jazaul Ikhsan, S.T., M.T., Ph.D. The MoU is expected that the faculty can enhance the research. “I wish that, after this MoU signing, there are follow-up activities,” he hoped.

The MoU embraced conducting research and evolving sciences and technology; disseminating sciences and technology, particularly physics like theories, laser, instrumentation, optoelectronics, geophysics, and materials; expert exchange; sharing information and utilizing data; discussion, seminar and publication; coaching UKM partners as the implementation of appropriate technology; and others.

Dr. Bambang Widiyatmoko, M.Eng. mentioned history, vision, mission, budget, facilities, and infrastructures of P2 Fisika LIPI. “P2 Fisika LIPI possesses several research group like Dalam P2 Fisika LIPI sendiri terdapat beberapa kelompok penelitian yang antara lain Advanced Ceramic and Material Magnetic, High Temperature Materials and Coating, Fuel Cell, Baterai Lithium, Optoelektronik, Laser, Fisika Teori, dan Geofisika,” he informed.

After the MoU signing, the following agenda was public lecture of ‘Challenges of Prevention of High Temperature Oxidation and Corrosion in Power Systems’ by Dr. Toto Sudiro, a researcher of High Temperature Materials and Coating of P2 Fisika LIPI. He expounded that Indonesia produces high quality coal which can be used to rapid power plants. Government now begins concerning with the coal power plants. “However, the high quality coal is, indeed, explored to Japan while Indonesia itself utilize low-medium quality coal,” Toto presented.

He also explained how to prevent the high temperature oxidation and corrosion in power system using well materials and coating having durability toward corrosion, oxidation, and erosion. Coating refers to power system protection materials or so-called Thermal Barrier Coating System (TBC System). “The TBC System has two layers, namely metallic brand coal and ceramic topcoat,” he discussed.
