Nuclear chemistry

The Nuclear Chemistry program will be focused on the study of chemical effects initiated by radiation or related to the decay of atomic nuclei. The team will further develop international collaboration with CERN (via the Crystal Clear Collaboration and COST FAST), JINR Dubna and Université Pierre et Marie Curie. The Nuclear Chemistry group participates in cutting edge research within the development of ultrafast detectors, study of the origins of life or the design and synthesis of advanced radiopharmaceuticals. Nuclear Chemistry is studied at FNSPE ( which is the only place in Czech Republic with this specialization.

It consists of three research groups representing three sub-programs:

A) Advanced materials (Jan Bárta)
B) Advanced processes (Martin Ferus)
C) Chemical support for material sciences (Barbora Drtinová)



doc. Ing. Václav Čuba, Ph.D.

news from the program

To demonstrate the so-called quantum supremacy of a quantum computer based on photons, Chinese scientists used a solution to a computational problem formulated at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Specifically, the Gaussian Boson Sampling protocol, developed by Craig Hamilton and Igor Jex of the FNSPE and their partners, the group of Christine Silberhorn of the University of Paderborn (FRG). The research team of the Chinese University of Science and Technology published a report on the results on December 3, 2020 in the journal Science.
The largest ICHEP2020 particle physics conference, which took place between July 28 and 6 August 2020, attracted over 3,000 particle physicists. Originally, the organizers expected that about a thousand of them would arrive in Prague, but due to the pandemic, the plans had to change and the conference moved to the online environment. In total, […]
