Together with a group from University in Tokyo, Japan, our colleagues Petar Pervan, emeritus of the Institute Milorad Milun and alumni Ivo Pletikosić have published a paper in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences about the acceleration effect of acceleration of hydrogen absorption by palladium through surface alloying with gold.
Our colleague Ivor Krešić has published a paper together with collaborators from Great Britain and France on self-organization of magnetic dipoles in cold rubidium atoms illuminated by laser light using a feedback mirror.
On July 6, 2018, a CALT Project (Center for Advanced Laser Techniques) opening conference was held on the premises of the Ministry of Science and Education in Zagreb. The conference gathered more than 80 participants from the academic community as well as national institutions and companies interested in research based on advanced laser techniques.
On Monday the 28th, 2018, a Contract was signed in the Ministry of Science and Education, according to which the sum of 39,558,639.75 Hrk is awarded to the project “Cryogenic center of the Institute of Physics – KaCIF” within the “Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014.– 2020“, financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
Our colleague Petar Pervan has together with groups from USA and Italy published a paper in Physical Review Letters on the electron band structure of tin selenide, a layered thermoelectric material.
We hosted students participating in the international PLANCKS 2018 event.
Together with our colleagues Valentin Jadriško, Borna Radatović, Davor Čapeta, and Marko Kralj, a group of researchers from Universität Münster, Germany, has recently published a paper on the transfer of strain at the grain boundaries of MoS2 monolayers grown by chemical vapor deposition. The results demonstrate that large-area artificially grown MoS2 monolayers are promising for mass-produced nanomechanical devices.
On Thursday, May 3rd 2018, the CERN Expert Mission led by CERN's Director for International Relations Charlotte Warakulle visited the Institute of Physics.
The ceremony marking the signing of the contract for the Grant for the strategic project "CALT (Advanced Laser Technology Center)"
Together with our colleagues Borna Pielić and Marko Kralj, group of researches from Germany has recently published a paper on the growth of single-layer disulfides on vdW substrates in ultra-high vacuum. Growth of Different TMDCs require only a small change of parameters in the synthesis procedure, making this method attractive for wide use.
