    Dávid Hovančík a Ph.D. student at the Department of Condensed matter physics is the leading author of the paper Robust intralayer antiferromagnetism and tricriticality in the van der Waals compound VBr3 selected as Editors' choice in PRB. This study is the result of a large collaboration between experimentalists and theoreticians from the Department of Condensed Matter Physics, Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Institute of the Czech Academy of Science, Hochfeld-Magnetlabor Dresden, and MGML.

About our department

We are a physics department dedicated to the study of condensed matter, i.e. the physics of solids and liquids. We are a research department with a strong focus on theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics. Our department also houses the scientific infrastructure of MGML, which is a state-of-the-art facility for research in condensed matter physics.

What do we do?

We work on the latest problems in condensed matter physics. We have 4 groups: Group of Magnetic Properties studies the physical properties of a wide range of materials, from high-temperature superconductors to rare earth metal alloys and actinides. Group of Structure Analysis focuses on the study structure and microstructure of advanced materials using X-ray diffraction. Group of Theoretical Physics models a wide range of physical phenomena in condensed matter, in particular using quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence. Physics of Nanostructures Group concentrates on comprehensive research of nanostructures with a focus on their use in optoelectronic, biomedical and environmental technologies.
