We are continually looking for hard-working individuals with fresh ideas to join our team. Do not hesitate and contact us!
List of offered student projects is available here.
The team of Bioelectrodynamics at the Institute of Photonics and Electronics AS CR focuses on research in the field of high-frequency and photonic bio-signals. Activities of the team cover development of experimental equipment for measurement, measurement itself, as well as theoretical description of mechanisms generating signals measured. In radio-frequency band we are dealing with measurement of very weak electromagnetic cellular signals. For these measurements we are developing micro- and nano-structure sensors with low-noise preamplifiers and electromagnetic shielding. In optical region we focus experimentally on non-thermal emission of photons from cellular cultures. Experimental work in both bands is followed with modeling of biophysical processes which generate electromagnetic filed at cellular, primarily supra-molecular, level.
