At the 2023 SCES conference, Ph.D. student Dávid Hovančík was recognized with the Best Poster Prize for his research on vanadium triiodide. His study provides fresh insights into the lattice symmetry and uncovers a promising potential application in ultrafast THz spintronics. The research, offering significant understanding into the behavior of 2D van der Waals materials, has been published in the prestigious Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.
The recent publication is an outcome of Dávid Hovančík’s diploma thesis work. His comprehensive study on solid solutions of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic actinides was carried out within the European Erasmus+ student project and as a cooperation between MGML and Presov’s University UnipoLab. The thesis was evaluated as an excellent work and awarded with the Rector’s Award of University of Presov.
