Dalibor Repček was awarded for his excellent poster presentation named Multiferroic Quantum Criticality in (Eu,Ba,Sr)TiO3 System in the Student Poster Competition at the International Symposium on Applications of Ferroelectrics (ISAF) within the joint ISAF-PFM-ECAPD conference held in Tours, France from June 27 to July 1, 2022.

The ISAF meeting is actually an important annual international conference gathering scientists all over the world working on both fundamental science and applications of ferroelectrics. The first ISAF meeting was held in 1968; since that time, annual meetings have been hosted all around the world, including Prague in the year 2013 within the joint UFFC, EFTF and ISAF-PFM Symposium, co-organized by the Department of Dielectrics.
Having this in mind, Dalibor Repček got a prestigious award from the community engaged in ferroelectrics and related materials for his experimental work on quantum critical phenomena in multiferroic materials. More specifically, he looks for an experimental proof of the theoretically predicted multiferroic quantum criticality in (Eu,Ba,Sr)TiO3 solid solution [1]. His PhD research is done under supervision of Dr. Stanislav Kamba and in collaboration with colleagues from Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University (Prague, Czech Republic) and from CEITEC (Brno, Czech Republic).
