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 groups of Dr. Otakar Frank, Dr. Matěj Velický, and partially Prof. Ladislav Kavan at the Dept. of Electrochemical Materials (head Dr. Otakar Frank) 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.

The successful applicant will work with Dr. Matěj Velický and his team on a project exploiting tunable electrochemistry and spectroscopy of two-dimensional (2D) materials. More information…
