MU prorector's awards for exceptional results during their postgraduate studies received those absolvents that successfully finished their doctoral studies in the standard length of 4 years. Concurrently the absolvents needed to achieve outstanding results through their research. Research quality is reflected in their dissertation thesis and the scientific articles published in highly regarded journals of Q1 levels. The explanatin of Q indexes of publications can be found for example here.
The award includes a financial bonus for the graduate and their supervisors. The prorector aims through this award to motivate current Ph.D. students to finish their studies in a standard length of time with the best possible results. More about this year's award ceremony can be found here.
Only two fresh graduates in the physics field were awarded for the academic year 2021/2022: dr. Marta Šlapanská and dr. Katarína Bernátová. Both graduates studied the doctoral program Plasma physics at the Department of Physical Electronics. They were a part of the Deposition of Thin Films and Nanostructures research group.
Dr. Katarína Bernátová and her supervisor prof. Petr Vašina were awarded. The topic of dr. Bernátová's dissertation thesis was "Study of sputtered particles densities in non-reactive and reactive HIPIMS process." Dr. Marta Šlapanská and her supervisor dr. Jaroslav Hnilica were rewarded. The topic of dr. Šlapanská's dissertation "Diagnostics of HiPIMS process in the presence and absence of traveling ionization zones." Both theses deal with diagnostics of HiPIMS of thin films, which is necessary to optimize various deposition processes.
The last year awards for the academic year 2020/2021 were the first. Last year, dr. Petr Bílek and his supervisor dr. Zdeněk Bonaventura from the Depatment of Physical Electronics recieved this award again. More can be found here.
