current occupation

since 2015

Head of Physics department at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague.

since 2011

Head of Laboratory of Functional Nano-Interfaces at the Department of Thin Films and Nanostructures,
Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Theme: Fabrication, characterization, and understanding of interfaces and nanostructures based on inorganic semiconductor materials (mainly silicon, diamond), organic molecules (organic dyes, proteins) and cells. Physical and chemical parameters are employed to merge these materials and to control their growth, orientation and position. Measurement and correlation of structural, (opto-) electronic and chemical properties and phenomena on a microscopic level plays a fundamental role in this research. Based on the microscopic and macroscopic measurements, physical models of arrangement, properties, and functional mechanisms are constructed. Functionality (such as charge transport and transfer) is characterized with view to target applications in electronics, optics, medicine, environment, and security. Indispensable part is an extensive collaboration on national and international level.
