Material science and engineering (MATE)

Program coordinator: prof. Dr. RNDr. Miroslav Karlík

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)
