Research profile

The scientific activity of the department is performed in four main fields of research: surface physics and magnetism of ultrathin films (Prof. Józef Korecki), superconducting and magnetic oxides (Prof. Andrzej Kołodziejczyk, Prof. Andrzej Kozłowski, Prof. Zbigniew Tarnawski), magnetic and structural properties of intermetallic compounds and their hydrides and theory of electron transport in disordered systems (Prof. Antoni Paja), as well as expanded lattice intermetallics, nanocomposites and magnetoresistive oxides studied with synchrotron radiation (Prof. Czesław Kapusta).

The experimental base of the Department of Solid State Physics consists of nine laboratories: Mössbauer Spectroscopy, NMR Spectroscopy, EPR Spectroscopy, AC and DC Magnetometry, Surface Physics (in situ CEMS, LEED/AES, MOKE), Low Temperature Specific Heat, XRD, ARUPS and PPMS laboratory.

Staff of the Department: 7 Professors and 14 researchers (Dr.), 8 technical assistants, administration and service staff and numerous PhD and postgraduate students.
