Double success of Department of Physics at Milan Odehnal Award

Dagmar Bendová was awarded a second prize at Milan Odehnal Award 2022. She was joined by Jakub Cimerman who got an honourable mention. The competition for young scientists up to 30 years of age is organized every two years by Czech Physical Society, the scientific section of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists. The ceremony will take place in Pilsen in July. 

Ing. Dagmar Bendová had a success with her work concerning the saturation of gluon density. For his work on the phenomenology of the quark-gluon plasma, Ing. Jakub Cimerman got an honourable mention. Complete results can be found on the UCMP webpage

Altogether, the competition had 13 participants, each of whom have mostly sent three works. According to jury, the quality of the considered works was extraordinary and the competition was very even. For this reason, besides the four award-winning works, the jury also granted four honourable mentions. 

Success of Karolína Syrokvaš at Czecho-Slovakian Student Science Conference in Physics

Karolina Syrokvas a Aleksaj Gaj LargeA student of the Nuclear and Particle Physics, Bc. Karolína Syrokvaš, won a first price in a Nuclear and sub-nuclear physics cathegory at the Czecho-Slovakian Student Science Conference in Physics. This year, the conference was held at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics of the Comenius University Bratislava. Karolína successfully presented her work "Systematic uncertainty of mass composition of cosmic rays interpreted from measurements of depth of shower maximum using different Monte Carlo generators" in the finals between 26. - 27. May 2022. 

The dean of the Faculty, doc. Ing. Václav Čuba, Ph.D., personally congratulated Karolína together with other successful students. 

Students of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering are taking part of this conference traditionally. Since 2014, they placed on the winners' podium every year and four times got a first price.

Roman Lavička obtained Werner von Siemens Award

siemens 4622

On Thursday 19. 5. 2022, Roman Lavička obtained Werner von Siemens Award for a third place in a category of the Best dissertation thesis for his work Ultra-Peripheral Collisions at ALICE. Besides the diploma, he got a bonus of 20 000 Kč, as did his supervisor prof. Jesus Guillermo Contreras Nuno from the Department of Physics. 

Werner von Siemens Award is granted by the Czech Siemens to the best students, teachers and young scientists. Independent committees chose the best works, projects and scientist in eight categories from 568 applications.  




Day as a Female Scientist celebrated a huge success!


By the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly from 2015, Fabruary 11th is recognized as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The goal is to celebrate the essential role of women in the world of science and support their access to the education in science, as well as participation in scientific activites.

The Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering together with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering celebrated this day by organizing an event Day as a Female Scientist, for the sixth year in a row. The event offers high school students to explore the day-to-day work of a scientist. The number of applicants was so high that the registration was closed a day earlier. The participants, whose number was approximately twice as high as in previous years, experienced lectures, hands-on sessions, panel discussion and a festive dinner to end the day with.

Marek Matas received Josef Hlavka Award

awardThis prize is awarded to young researchers that have shown exceptional abilities and creativity in their field of science.

Marek has received the prize for his contribution to high-energy Quantum Chromodynamics. He was able to compute the gluonic structure of the proton with respect to its transverse coordinate with the help of the non-linear evolution equations and obtain thus a "3D scan of the proton". He then confirmed his predictions with various measurements from accelerator experiments and released his predictions for public use by the low-x physics community.
