Photos of liquid crystals under a polarized microscope brought the second place to Vladimíra Novotná in the category of ‘Photogenic Science’.
The nomination for the annual Otto Wichterle Premium is intended for outstanding young scientists up to the age of thirty-five employed at the Academy of Sciences who achieved top results in their fields.
If you wish to have the best scientific team to be in the front line of global science, you need to start looking for its members at an early stage. Ideally at a secondary school level.
Authors extended the application of the method further to the fields where the knowledge of the so-called absolute configuration of molecules is indispensable, such as pharmaceutical research or molecular biology. The new method will be used in laboratories and the development of drugs will become faster, simpler and more effective.
The Otto Wichterle Award is a prestigious honour coming with a financial reward which has been awarded to excellent young scientists by the Czech Academy of Sciences since 2002
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences received a record amount of 1670 visitors during its Open Days
More than one thousand visitors attended the Researchers’ Night Festival at the Institute of Physics
Each site of the Institute had a special programme, designed particularly for students with a deep interest in physics, and last but not least, the laser centres sites in Dolní Břežany had rich programme activities for the general public.
Czech Researchers Discovered a New Way of Controlling Magnetic and Electronic Properties of Molecules
This may open new doors for developing novel optical sensors, photoluminescent materials, catalysts, and pharmaceuticals
