Department of physics provides training of teachers of physics
for secondary schools in combination with mathematics, chemistry,
biology, informatics or fundamentals of technology. It also ensures
bachelor and master studies of "Computer modelling in
physics and technology".
The department collaborates with Faculty of
Mathematics and Physics of Charles University Prague, Faculty of
Biological Sciences of University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice,
the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering of Czech Technical University in Prague,
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Technical University of
Liberec, Pädagogishe Hochschule Freiburg (Germany) and
Pedagogical University Czestochowa (Poland), University Paris VI
(France), Gent University (Belgium) and Welding Research
Institute in Bratislava (Slovakia), Institute of Solution
Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Ivanovo near
Moscow, and with all departments providing teacher training in
the Czech Republic.
Professional and scientific activities of the
department members concern:
- low temperature plasma physics
- plasma chemistry
- solar physics
- physics of thin films and composites
- computational physics
- theoretical physics
- didactics of physics
- computer application in teaching
Department members were holders or
collaborators of many grants in past years. The most
important ones are:
- Project COPERNICUS 94 CIPA-CT94-0183: "Industrial application of
low temperature plasmas".
- Project INCO - COPERNICUS ERBIC 15 CT98
of Plasma-Based Products and Processes".
- Grant from programme "Advancement of
information infrastructure for research and
development" of the Ministry of Education of the
Czech Republic INFRA (2) nr. LB98224: "Building up a
supercomputer terminal workplace at UJEP".
- The department of physics is engaged in
care about talented pupils. Each year it organize
together with Association of Czech Mathematicians and
Physicists the Physical Olympiad and a week's summer
school of young physicists.
- The department offers a course of lectures
on didactics of physics to teachers from the region.
- The department offers a research with
modern technologies (AFM, STM) for firms in the region.
