Preparation and characterisation of optical materials (J. Pejchal)

Preparation of new materials (halides, oxides, phosphate glasses) of quality and purity and study of their optical properties with prospective applications for radiation detectors (scintillators) and solid state lasers (operating in mid IR region).

Crystal growth of high temperature oxides by micro-pulling-down method and of halide materials by vertical Bridgman method.

Study of thermal properties of prepared materials using methods of thermal analysis, e.g. determination of phase transitions in crystalline solids and glass properties.
