The group focuses on the search and preparation of materials - crystals, nanostructures and glasses - of high quality and purity with interesting optical properties, with the prospect of their use as near-infrared lasers and as so-called scintillators used in neutron, gamma and X-ray detection in industry, medicine, safety and other applications.
The group also deals with the preparation of model crystalline systems for the study of luminescence or scintillation mechanisms. Physico-chemical properties of prepared materials are studied using various methods of thermal analysis.
