An international physics conference “Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics”, taking place in Prague in August 2022, dealt with small nanosystems with sizes from tents to hundreds of nanometres in non-equilibrium conditions. The behaviour of such systems is thought to have a significant impact on the future of nanotechnologies, quantum computers development but also on the future of chemistry and medicine.
The recently deceased Ing. Ludvík Smrčka, DrSc., an outstanding researcher and a friend, as remembered by four of his colleagues.
A new diamond-titanium nanocomposite may help decompose dangerous chemical warfare agents such as Soman in much more effective manner. It was developed in cooperation of scientists from the Czech Academy of Sciences including the FZU, Czech Technical University, Military Resarch Institute and Uppsala University.
The conference and workshop were focused on the latest discoveries in the area of crystal growth, epitaxy, characterization and applications.
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.
Has significantly contributed to clarifying the mechanism of superconductivity in the boron-doped diamond. He also reopened the problem of relativistic transformation of temperature, which plays a decisive role in the relativistic physics of thermal phenomena and in cosmology.
Award for a research of biofilm formation – attachment and growth of bacteria monitored by real-time ATR-IR spectroscopy
Pavla Štenclová, Ph.D., received the Austin Barnes´ Prize for the best poster. The presented results were obtained during the research stay at the University of Ulm.
The works presented results of basic research of diamond material with potential application in wastewater treatment and the detection of pollutants in water or in the atmosphere.
The first place in the competition Photogenic Science belongs to a photo by dr. Filip Dominec called "A stain on semiconductor sample" which recalls a medieval town.
Czech scientists were awarded during the 9th International Conference on Nanomaterials – Nanocon 2017 in Brno.
RNDr. Jan Čermák, PhD. has received an award at the 3rd International Forum on Multidisciplinary Education and Research for Energy Science
