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.

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.
Based on the previously announced tenders and the new Ordinance on the structure and work of the Institute of Physics, on 1st of March, 2018 a record number of employment contracts were signed.
From Monday, February 26, 2018, he started to work as a senior expert in economic affairs, Mrs. Kristina Stažić. We wish our new colleague a welcome and a lot of success at work.
