Weekend programme after the competition

Fyziklani is not only the one day competition – we offer also an interesting programme full of physics. You can enjoy physics lectures from the scientists from the university, see the real laboratories and also the beautiful city Prague. We can provide you with accommodation in a hotel for the whole time.

You can register for the programme in the application for the competition and choose what part of the programme you want to take part in. Detailed information will be provided the day before the competition. Organizers will accompany you during the whole programme.

Payments for the weekend programme will be collected in cash (in CZK) during the registration before the competition.

The programme starts by rout in the evening after the competition. Specific times can be found on the website with programme.

Friday 19:00 – 23:00


The Residence of the Mayor of Prague, Mariánské náměstí 98/1
There will be a rout for all participants and teachers. Transfer will be collective with organizers. Formal clothing is required. The rout ends at 23:00 with the transfer to the TOP Hotel.

Saturday 9:00 – 11:30

Physical lectures

The Faculty, Ke Karlovu 3, 5
An interesting lectures in physics for high school students and teachers in czech and english.

  • 9:30 -10:45 Mgr. Tomáš Ledvinka, Ph.D. : Detection of gravitational waves - Wonders of the universe and the laboratories (CZ)
  • 9:30 - 10:45 prof. Mgr. Jakub Čížek, Ph.D. : Superfluidity and quantized vortices (EN)
  • The lecture provides a brief insight into interesting physical phenomena related to Bose-Einstein condensation and occurring at very low temperatures. In particular, the lecture is focused to behavior of cryogenic liquids, fluid dynamics of liquid helium, superfluidity, superconductivity and quantum turbulence. Unique feature of these processes is that the quantum mechanism is demonstrated on a macroscopic scale.
  • 11:00 -12:15 doc. RNDr. Stanislav Daniš, Ph.D. : Light! (CZ)
  • 11:00 - 12:15 RNDr. Robert Švarc, Ph.D. : From falling apples to merging black holes (EN)
  • The talk gives basic overview of the main ideas of Einstein’s general relativity and its applications in current astrophysics and cosmology. We try to explain remarkable advantages of the geometric description of gravity in terms of spacetime curvature together with its essential astrophysical predictions which have successfully passed various sophisticated experimental tests during last century.

Saturday 12:30 - 14:15

The end of the day's program - Return to the TOP Hotel

Sunday 9:30 – 11:30

Excursions in the laboratories of The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics

The Faculty, Ke Karlovu 3, 5

  • Transmission electron microscope lab (TEM)- The Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) works with an electron beam that penetrates the observed sample. Unlike the scanning microscope, it allows observation of the internal structure of materials. However, the sample must be thin enough to penetrate the electron beam. HRTEM (High Resolution TEM) allows observation of individual atoms.
  • Raman spectroscopy lab (RS)- Raman effect was discovered by Indian physicist C.V. Raman in 1928. It is an inelastic scattering of light. A photon interacts with a substance molecule and transmits part of its energy, changing its wavelength. The composition of the substance can be determined from this change.
  • OptoSpintronics lab (OSP) - An electronics industry that uses the properties of electrons called spin. Today, all hard disk drives work on this principle. If the spintronic processor could be put into operation, it would mean a significant acceleration of the processors.
  • Two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy lab (TDES)- Spectroscopy examines materials based on how they work with electromagnetic waves, in this case in the visible range. This is a widespread non-invasive method.
  • Optoelectronics and magnetooptics technological lab preparing monocrystals of semiconductors CdTe and (CdZn)Te (OMTPM)
  • Experiments in Low-temperature physics (ELTP)
Excursions and experiments in the laboratories for the single groups in English
9:30 - 10:00 10:10 - 10:40 10:50 - 11:20


Sunday 11:30 – 12:30
