RNDr. Antonín Fejfar, CSc.

(*1962, Počátky)


Institute of Physics of the CAS

A. Fejfar studied physical microelectronics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague from 1981 to 1986. In 1991 he defended his dissertation thesis on the organic semiconducting thin films and then he went for a post-doctoral stay to Kyoto University, Japan (1991 - 1993). Since 1994, he works at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS). He returned to Kyoto University in 2007–2008 as a visiting professor and since 2014 he has been a visiting researcher at the École Polytechnique in France.

In his research he specializes to physics of thin films of nanostructured semiconductors for applications in solar cells and photonics. He is the (co)author of more than 140 publications, which have been cited more than 1300 times (h-index 22) and of 1 international patent. He led several grant projects, including international ones (H2020, FP7, Barrande, DAAD).

Since April 2017 he became a President of the Council of Sciences of the CAS after serving as its Vice-President for the Mathematics, Physics and Earth Sciences from 2011 to 2017. He is a member of the Committee on Energy of the CAS, a member of the Scientific Council of CEITEC Nano at Brno University of Technology and of the Nanometer Structures Division of the International Union of Vacuum Sciences, Technologies and Applications (IUVSTA). He is one of the main organizers of the international summer school series on Physics at Nanoscale. He has supervised students on graduate and undergraduate levels as well as high school students in the Open Science project. He takes part in popularization of science, in particular in the field of solar energy and nanosciences.
