June 6th 2017 at Villa Lanna, the director of the Czech Academy of Sciences professor Eva Zažímalová awarded twenty-three young scientists with the Otto Wichterle Prize. Three of them – Ing. Vítězslav Jarý, Ph.D., RNDr. Lukáš Ondič, Ph.D., and Ing. Jakub Vícha, Ph.D. – are employed at the Institute of Physics (IoP) of the CAS.

The Prize, named in honour of Prof. Otto Wichterle, the world renowned Czech chemist who also became the first post 1989 director of the Czech Academy of Sciences, is given to young scientists under the age of 35 for outstanding scientific achievement.

Vítězslav Jarý, Ph.D., the postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, was awarded the prize “Česká hlava” (literal translation “Czech Head”). In particular, Vítězslav Jarý obtained the price of ČEZ group for the excellent PhD thesis in technical sciences.

Recently there has been increasing demand for new materials which can be used for detection of invisible ionizing radiation (X-ray, gamma ray), for example in industry (searching for leakage in materials, looking for new natural resources), medicine (CT, PET scanners), security (security checks at the airport gates), physics (LHC particle accelerator in CERN).
