Department of Functional Materials

belongs to the Condensed Matter Division of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences

The department consists of 3 research groups FMC, MNB and MCM

Research within the department focusses on  active or passive functionality imprinted to the solid state materials on the structural level,

Currently, we are mainly working on:
