Particle and Nuclear Physics

The Particle Physics group is building on strong research activities in the fields of particle and nuclear physics which are realized by groups at FNSPE and FME. Members of the particle physics group are involved in leading experiments exploring the structure of nuclear matter (ATLAS, ALICE, STAR, CBM, D0) and anti-matter (AEgIS) as well as in the development of detectors for these experiments, future experiments and in theoretical studies concerning structure and properties of matter. The physics of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions and particles is studied at the Center for Physics of Ultra-relativistic Nuclear Collisions ( and other experimental and theoretical groups at FNSPE (


The works in the PARTPHYS program will be divided into seven domains (sub-programs):

A) Properties of jets and their modification in QGP (Jana Bielčíková)
B) Production and interactions of heavy flavors (Jaroslav Bielčík) 
C) Photonuclear interactions in ultraperiheral collisions (Jesus Guillermo Contreras Nuno)
D) Phenomenological models of cold nuclear matter effects (Jan Nemčík)
E) Monte-Carlo models of particle production in hadron collisions (Boris Tomášik)
F) Rydberg states of atoms in high energy plasma (Svatopluk Civiš)
G) Language for SCIENCE-ART-PUBLIC communication (Roman Berka)

news from the program

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, […]

Scientists, top managers, programmers, high-ranking civil servants, but also specialists in hospitals and various other workplaces – those are the jobs of graduates from the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). The Faculty emphasizes its scientific focus and engages master’s degree students in research, but there […]
At the end of October 2019, Google (through an article in Nature) announced that it had reached the so-called quantum superiority, the moment when a quantum computer works much faster than a supercomputer of classical architecture. Virtually all the media brought the Google success story as well as the reaction of probably the biggest competitor […]
