Latest observation by GRANDMA network allows scientists to set limits on specific astrophysical phenomena. Astronomers were looking for gravitational waves to see events invisible to optical and radio telescopes.
The results of the NextBase international project, with the participation of scientists from the FZU, have brought hope for the restoration of European competitiveness in the production of solar panels. The project has developed prototypes of solar cell with high efficiency and low-cost potential.
In late nineties, a unique terawatt iodine (1315.2 nm) laser system Asterix IV, originally developed, built and operated at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching near Munich, was moved to Prague.
The Institute of Physics has launched a new version of its website today that represents a fundamental shift away from its previous Internet presentation.
The patented solution of scientists from the Institute of Physics and Czech Technical University prolongs the lifetime of nuclear fuel rods under nuclear reactor accident and working conditions by coating the surface of fuel rods by a thin polycrystalline diamond layer.
The computing programme “Jana” has connected the worlds of crystallography and excellent research in magnetism
A work published Science in March 2020 shows that the development of crystallographic calculations also plays an important role in top physical research.
Today is an important milestone in the laser history. On the 16th of May 1960, the American physicist and engineer Theodore Maiman designed and launched the first functional laser system in the world and this year we celebrate its 60th anniversary.
A photo taken by an electron microscope sent to a competition for the cover page of a prestigious journal Materials Today published by Elsevier brought success to our PhD student Karel Tesař.
