The French Embassy awarded the graduate of MathPhys
Dr. Stanislav Valenta from the Institute of Particle and Nuclear Physics of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University was awarded in the competition of research works organized by the French Embassy in the Czech Republic.
The first place in the category of nuclear research, called Becquerel Prize, was awarded to dr. Stanislav Valenta for his dissertation Study of statistical gamma decay in well-deformed rare-earth nuclei. He defended it last year under the guidance of doc. Milan Krtička and is now continuing his research.
The French Embassy awards are awarded annually for outstanding diploma and doctoral theses. This year's 25th edition of the competition was attended by a total of 60 young researchers younger than 33 years. The awards were given out in six categories.
Another awarded besides dr. Valenta was Dr. Ladislav Maršík, who received a special price for his research in computer science.
The award ceremony took place in the Hall of Fame at National Museum at the end of June. The awards were presented to the laureates by Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel laureate in chemistry.
