ABOUT

I’m PhD. student of Plasma Physics at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. I have completed master's degree program of Plasma Physics and Nanotechnology. This study gave me strong knowledge of general physics and also view on research and development in the field of nanotechnology (materials, analytical methods and utilization).

Thin films have become my main focus, especially technology of deposition and characterization of thin films. Currently I’m aiming to synthesize nanolaminate structures that exhibit high hardness and maintain ductility.

I’m a member of research group, which focuses on thin film deposition using magnetron sputtering and plasma diagnostic. This work enables me to cooperate also witch people outside the academic circles. I participated on contract research of developing an industry technology.
