Assistant Prof.

Gaël Bastien, Ph.D.

I am interested in magnetic and electric properties of solid state. I am leading a Primus project on frustrated lattices of magnetic and electric dipoles.

Dr. rer. nat. Jeroen Custers

Research focus: Strongly correlated electron systems, quantum criticality, heavy fermion compounds, Kondo effect, topology and superconductivity in correlated f-electron materials.

RNDr. Petr Čermák, Ph.D.

Physicist using #neutrons. I have MaMBA. MGML local contact, opendata enthusiast, figshare ambassador, python lover.

RNDr. Silvie Černá, Ph.D.

I am dealing with hydrogen absorption in rare-earth and uranium compounds. I am interested in the influence of hydrogenation on the crystal structure and magnetic properties. At the same time, I am looking for compounds with future application.

RNDr. Klára Uhlířová, Ph.D.

Crystals are beautiful things allowing us to study their unique physical properties.


Nikolaos Biniskos, Ph.D.

Physicist using neutrons to investigate magnetism.
