We are a group of researchers with expertise in theoretical condensed matter physics. We apply the principles of quantum and statistical physics to a wide range of materials, molecules and nanostructures. Our effort is aimed at interpreting, understanding and designing experiments at our department, in the Czech Republic and in laboratories worldwide. Our day-to-day routine may include brainstorming ideas, working out the formulas with pencil and paper, coding them in state-of-the-art computational tools and even operating high-performance computers.

Students studying with us are quickly introduced to cutting-edge topics like machine learning, topological insulators and materials for quantum computing.
