Who we are?
We are a multidisciplinary research group at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University focusing on the physics of advanced nanomaterials and their nanostructures. Our key expertise is materials design and preparation of hybrid nanomaterials, including magnetic-field assisted chemical synthesis. Our signature techniques are in situ optical micro-spectroscopies in variable temperature and static magnetic fields up to 14 T, as well as in high-frequency magnetic fields up to 1 MHz.
We are part of the Nanocarbon group, which is an informal assembly of Dept. of Low dimensional Systems (Prof. Martin Kalbáč) and a group of Dr. Otakar Frank at the Dept. of Electrochemical Materials (head Prof. Ladislav Kavan) from J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and Physics of Nanostructures group. We are running joint projects, share experimental equipment, rooms, and of course, passion for nanostructured carbon and other low-dimensional materials.
