Advanced Materials & Technologies


Palacký University Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials (RCPTM) is a modern centre for research and development of nanomaterials and chemicals that may find application in medicine, biotechnologies, the food industry, and environmental protection. Excellent results have also been achieved by the RCPTM optics experts, who peer into the world of photons and quantum information processing and explore the mysteries of cosmic radiation.

Today, RCPTM has approximately 100 scientific team members, 25% of whom are foreign specialists. They have cutting-edge devices at their disposal, including the most efficient high-definition electron microscope in the Czech Republic. The RCPTM experts focus on chemical, material, and optical research in seven priority research areas:

  • Environmental Nanotechnologies
  • Carbon Nanostructures, Biomolecules and Simulations
  • Biologically Active Complexes and Molecular Magnets
  • Optical and Photonic Technologies
  • Nanomaterials in Biomedicine
  • Magnetic Nanostructures
  • Nanotechnology in Analytical Chemistry 

The list of achievements in basic and applied research is extensive; the RCPTM experts publish more than 200 original publications in prestigious foreign journals every year. The Centre is involved in a number of international grants and projects, as well as in long-term collaboration with more than 50 of the world’s leading institutions.
