Material science and engineering

The Material Science group of the CAAS will further develop their excellent competence in studies in material structure and properties, preparation of new materials as well as in understanding of the relations between the structure and properties of materials; for example in advanced tribology and biological applications of materials. Solid state physics and physics of materials is studied primarily at FNSPE (https://sites.google.com/site/kmatpok/kontakt,
https://kiplwww.fjfi.cvut.cz/drupal7/?q=zakladni-informace-admathttps://kiplwww.fjfi.cvut.cz/drupal7/) and FEE and at Southampton University (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/engineering/about/staff/tp1n10.page), where our member dr. Polcar has recently been employed.

The program is composed of six sub-programs implemented by six working groups:

A) Preparation of Materials Structures (Ladislav Kalvoda)
B) Advanced Tribology (Tomáš Polcar)
C) Applied Biological Materials (Petr Kolenko)
D) Microelectronics (Jan Voves)
E) Modelling of Materials (Michal Beneš)
F) Material Characterization (Miroslav Karlík)

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, […]
