The success of the scheme include clarification of the development of magnetism in complex intermetallic compounds of uranium (80’s) or the discovery of a share on understanding the causes of the so-called giant magnetoresistance in some ternary compounds (90’s).
The department currently has magnetic properties of a broad base of experimental techniques for the study of magnetic, transport and thermodynamic effects of temperatures below 1 K, even in high magnetic fields up to 20 T . The research is based on technological base allowing refining of metals, metal single crystal growth or high-pressure synthesis of hydrides. Experimental techniques are complemented by modern methods of electronic structure calculations, which include fully relativistic effects, spin and orbital polarization. A deeper understanding of the observation of phenomena and to some extent predict material-specific properties.
A number of experimental methods, which are not available in Prague, such as sources of synchrotron radiation, neutrons, high magnetic fields, is used by international consortia and cooperation (ESRF Grenoble, ILL Grenoble, NHMFL Tallahassee / Los Alamos). Materials containing transuranium elements Np, Pu, Am are studied at the European Institute for Transuranium Elements in Karlsruhe.
These extensive capabilities are recently becoming more focused on the so-called functional materials and phenomena such as giant magnetocaloric effect observed in some magnetic materials, is being used in cryogenics, in organic cooling ap.
