I am involved in theoretical research on electronic structure of
solid. More specifically, in ab-initio calculations of electronic and
magnetic structure of solids, layers and clusters and in calculations
of their x-ray absorption and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism
spectra. Most of my calculations were done using a
real-space multiple-scattering or KKR
method. However, I have got some first-hand experience
with plane-wave calculations and
second-hand experience with FLAPW
I enjoy cooperating with some research groups in
the Czech Republic.
I am involved in some international networks as well
Areas of recent research interest
Local aspects of the electronic structure of solids - links
between real and electronic structure.
X-ray absorption spectroscopy of solids in the near-edge region
(XANES a.k.a. NEXAFS). Especially I like to deal with low-dimensional
and non-crystalline systems.
Magnetic and spectroscopic properties of transition metal clusters
Magnetocrystalline anisotropy of solids.
Tutorial on spectroscopy
You may find something useful in an introductory talk
on core level
spectroscopy given at a hand-on course on theoretical spectroscopy
in Pilsen in 2015. (Yes, that's the city that
its name. However, the tutorial is about physics. Sorry chap...)
Things which I did in the past (and possibly still know something
Electronic structure of superconductors: Bogoliubov-de Gennes
Weak superconductivity (superconductor-normal metal
Oscillatory magnetic coupling in multilayers
Bremsstrahlung isochromat spectroscopy.
Last but not least, may I take this opportunity to invite you to
visit a page devoted
to my research
beyond the realm of physics. I prefer to call this kind of
research as "non-physical" or "extra-physical", to stress that it
stands outside physics and not against it. (Which reminds me our
English teacher explaining us the linguistic difference between
