We are pushing the boundaries of basic and applied research
Our researchers focus on both basic and applied research and contribute to the development of society at national and global levels. The Institute of Physics actively supports scientists at all stages of their careers and builds international scientific teams.
The results of the NextBase international project, with the participation of scientists from the FZU, have brought hope for the restoration of European competitiveness in the production of solar panels. The project has developed prototypes of solar cell with high efficiency and low-cost potential.
In late nineties, a unique terawatt iodine (1315.2 nm) laser system Asterix IV, originally developed, built and operated at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching near Munich, was moved to Prague.
The computing programme “Jana” has connected the worlds of crystallography and excellent research in magnetism
A work published Science in March 2020 shows that the development of crystallographic calculations also plays an important role in top physical research.
