Postdoctorand Ing. Tibor Ižák, Ph.D was awarded by the 1st prize of Best Young Researcher Contribution Content on the international conference on thin films, surfaces and interfaces (Solid State Surfaces and Interfaces, SSSI), which was held from 21 until 24 November in Piestany, Slovak Republic. SS...
The team of scientists from the Institute of Physics was awarded the 1st place at the international conference Nanocon 2016 for the best poster on the topic Top-down and bottom-up fabrication of polycrystalline diamond-based photonic crystals. The competition consisted of more than 220 posters from...
Researcher of LNSM from Laboratory of diamond and carbon nanostructures in cooperation with Electrotechnical Institute of Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava (group of Dr. G. Vanko) published in Materials & Design journal a complex procedure for evaluation of thermally induced stresses in p...
Two profoundly different carbon allotropes – nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) and graphene (G) – are of considerable interest from the viewpoint of a wide range of biomedical applications including implant coating, drug and gene delivery, cancer therapy, and biosensing. Within a close cooperation with...
Two invited lectures at international conferences were presented by the LNSM scientists. It was a lecture on size control of nanodiamonds presented by Dr. Stehlik at the EMN Meeting on Nanoparticles, May 2016, Singapore, and a lecture on electronic properties of diamond nanoparticles presented by Do...
Feature Article of Advances in Engineering, the leading source of engineering research news, has been published in 2016 about our result that photoluminescence of nanodiamonds is influenced by charge transfer from various substrates.
Material Research Society News reported about our results, including an opinion of an independent expert from the United States. They described our developed a simple two-step approach how to control size and purity of HPHT nanodiamonds down to 1 nm (in spite of some theoretical predictions that suc...
In the year 2016 the President of the Academy of Sciences of the CR granted The Otto Wichterle Award based on the recommendations of the Jury for granting The Otto Wichterle Award to a LNSM scientist, Ing. Štěpán Stehlík, Ph.D. for his research on structure, electronic and optical properties of nano...
LNSM scientists cooperated with coworkers from Utrecth to develop a new method for visualization of electric fields induced by single molecules with atomic spatial resolution. The work, which was published in highly prestigious Nature Communications [1], extends the imaging capabilities of single mo...
Scientists from the LNSM together with colleagues from Utrecht University developed a new method to image the electrostatic field of molecules at the atomic level. The work, which was published in the prestigious journal Nature Communications, advances our current possibilities to image individual m...
