Dr. Lukáš Félix Pašteka awarded the Faculty Medal

28. 4. 2017: Each year, our Faculty awards Commemorative Medals to the significant members as a token of the highest appreciation and recognition of our excellent people.

The medal for excellent results of a young scientist aged 35 or less, was now awarded to the member of the Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Dr. Lukáš Félix Pašteka. We add our congratulations to this award, and we wish to our colleague many more results in the future that will continue to spread the good name of the Department and the Faculty at home, as well as abroad.

Research results of Dr. Pašteka in the focus

10. 1. 2017: Our Department's Dr. Lukáš Félix Pašteka, currently in a Post-Doctoral position at Massey University (NZ), and the results of his research shifted relativistic quantum chemistry of gold to a whole new level!

His results were published in the prestigious Journal Physical Review Letters, which could not escape the attention of media in the world, as well as in Slovakia. His discoveries are discussed at PHYS.ORG and SME Tech, where our colleague also gave a personal interview. Thank you, Lukáš, and we are very much looking forward to your return to the Department!

Mini-Erasmus Summer Term 2016

5. 4. 2016: As we do every term, the Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry participated, again, in the programme of Future Generation Europe Mini-Erasmus. Selected high-school students from all over Slovakia, who decided to try the lives of university students for one week, visited our labs, where we prepared our favorite experiments from the practical courses of Physical Chemistry and Laboratory Techniques. After lunch, they looked behind the curtains of computations in Theoretical and Computer Chemistry. We hope that this is not the last time we see our Mini-Erasmus students and we shall meet again soon!

Doors Open Day 2016

Jan 22, 2016: Together with other departments of the Faculty, the Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry also warmly welcomed high-school students, who are currently looking for the right university for their further careers. Those, who were interested in the Chemistry branch, could have a peek into our Computer Chemistry Lab, and into the Laser Spectroscopy Lab. For all we have our fingers crossed and we wish everyone the right choice, and we hope that with many we will soon be seeing each other at our department even more frequently.

The department celebrated 50 years of existence

Nov 6, 2015: Half a century of the Department’s existence was celebrated among current and former colleagues, guests from the management and many departments of the Faculty, from the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Czech Technical University in Prague, as well as from other partner institutions. Speeches were delivered by the Vice-Dean Zuzana Kovačičová, by the Vice-Dean Marta Kollárová, by Professor Emeritus Ľudovít Treindl, by Professor Pavel Hobza and by a former Associate Professor, Milica Miadoková. Persisting support was also expressed by many Alumni of the Department. You can have a taste of this special occasion in our photogallery.
