The creative scientific work at the Faculty of Chemical Technology is the result of many actors and synergies. From the perspective of long-term publishing activities in internationally respected publication media, the involvement in national and international scientific projects and the establishment of independent scientific schools in cooperation with doctoral students and younger colleagues, we can identify eleven personalities who represent the main development trends in the field of natural and technical sciences. We present you brief profiles, bibliometric profiles and publication characteristics of these important selected scientists of our faculty.
In disciplines of natural and technical sciences, it is customary to assess long-term activities from the point of view of measurable outputs, which are mostly based on the work published in international journals indexed within the Web of Science. The citation analysis of these published works is then usually considered to be a measure of international importance of the field. At the “Web of Science Categories” level, Chemical Technology has been outstanding in many fields for a long time. In particular, these are: Chemistry Analytical, Materials Science Ceramics, Physics Condensed Matter, Biochemical Research Methods, Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry, Polymer Science, Materials Science Textiles, Physics Atomic Molecular Chemical.
By its nature and by definition, science is an international activity. International cooperation is therefore an integral part of quality scientific work and, above all, it is essential in the long term in building viable creative teams. We maintains intensive international cooperation especially in the field of doctoral study programs. One example among many is the International Cooperative Graduate Program with the National Institute for Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan, where our PhD students participate in one-year internships as part of their doctoral studies. This research institution is one of the world’s most successful materials science institutions.
Within the Faculty of Chemical Technology, the Centre for Materials and Nanotechnologies (CEMNAT; established in 2013) has the largest international and scientific reach. Activities of the Centre, headed by prof. Ing. Miroslav Vlček, CSc., are oriented mainly to the field of materials science (photonics, electronics, renewable energy sources, chemically active surfaces, etc.). With regard to the focus of the Centre, materials are also studied in nanoscale forms (nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanofibers and thin films). The basic and applied research resulting from its activities is represented in the selection below by the scientifically most efficient researcher of CEMNAT Dr.-Ing. Jan Macák. Since 2016, the Pardubice-based CEMNAT, which has top-class instrumentation at its disposal, has been included in the Czech Republic Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation.
