Welcome

Dear visitor, welcome to the web page of the Nanocarbon group, which is an informal assembly of Dept. of Low dimensional Systems (head Dr. Martin Kalbáč) and group of Dr. Otakar Frank at the Dept. of Electrochemical Materials (head prof. Ladislav Kavan) from J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and group of assoc. prof. Jana Vejpravová from Department of condensed matter physics, Faculty of mathematics and Physics, Charles University.

We are running common projects, share experimental equipment, rooms, and of course passion for nanostructured carbon.

Our research interests include nanocarbon based materials: graphite, graphene, nanotubes or nanodiamonds, and related low-dimensional objects like layered transition metal dichalcogenides, but we also span a broad range of potential aplications, from electronics to mechanics, from conversion of energy to its storage, biomedicine and others.

How do structural properties of graphite affect large ion (de-)intercalation? Pls find below our recent publication on a very systematic study to understand large dual-ion intercalation in graphite- #Aqueousbattery

Happy to share our recent review article based on "Mixed sp2–sp3 Nanocarbon Materials: A Status Quo Review" https://www.mdpi.com/1280970 #mdpinanomaterials via @nano_mdpi

The succesful applicant will work with Dr. Matěj Velický and his team on a five-year project exploiting tunable electrochemistry and spectroscopy of two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors. The aim of the project is to develop a state-of-the-art in-situ spectroelectrochemical method for characterization and control of 2D materials’ physical properties. To achieve this… more information
