Bachelor and Master theses
The complete list of currently published bachelor's and master's theses can be found in the SIS. However, other works can be listed after agreement according to the interest and focus of the students. In this case, it is possible to contact the selected supervisor directly or contact our department (email@example.com), where we will be happy to provide you with further information, arrange a meeting, show the laboratories… and maybe have a coffee together: -)
For a better idea of what scientific topics students can deal with at our department, we have divided the topics of the published works into the following areas:
Physics of nanomaterials
In the field of physics of nanomaterials, the student works are focused on the preparation and characterization of various types of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanocomposites, nanofluids, nanostructures ...). According to their scope, these works aim to develop novel functional nanomaterials (e.g. antibacterial coatings, platforms for biodetection, nanomaterials for fuel cells), understand the relationship between their structure and functional properties, or understand and describe the mechanism of their formation. In addition, it is possible to offer works in which new deposition apparatus or software for their control are developed.
Physics of polymers and macromolecular substances
These works address the state-of-the-art investigation of temperature-sensitive polymers/hydrogels, which is enormously important, for example, for the development of "smart" systems for controlled drug delivery, the attractive research of conductive polymers and organic semiconductors, which play an irreplaceable role in photovoltaics and flexible electronics, or for the development of advanced detectors, as well as topics related to the development and characterization of new types of plasma polymers with tailor-made properties.
In addition to these topics, which are traditional for our department, we have also initiated research directed towards studying the interaction of plasma with polymers and biological systems (e.g. bacteria, proteins, seeds) in order to improve their functional properties (e.g. their ability to bind biologically active molecules), control their biological function (e.g. sterilization of bacteria, increase of seed germination).
Experimental research is supplemented by theoretical works. At our department, these studies deal with modern research directions in the areas of stochastic modeling, non-equilibrium transitions in biophysics and chemistry, dynamics and thermodynamics of molecular motors, fluctuations in quantum systems. Last but not least, interested students may participate in the research in the field of active matter.
