Member of the Science Board, Physics
"Each day, science keeps improving our thinking, driven by the desire to implement its power. Physics does so in the simplest possible way by direct confrontation of simple natural phenomena and our ideas."
Professor Radim Filip specializes in quantum optics, interaction of light with atoms and nanoparticles, quantum optomechanics, quantum optical communication, and quantum information processing.
Professor of optics and optoelectronics in the Department of Optics, Faculty of Science, Palacky University in Olomouc. Author or co-author of more than 130 articles for high-impact journals, including Nature Physics, Nature Communication and Physical Review Letters. Most of his methodology proposals have been experimentally implemented. He oversees an international team of young scientists and students involved in quantum physics and quantum technologies.
In 2005, he received the prestigious Humboldt Foundation Research Fellowship. In 2007, he received the Czech Science Foundation Special Prize for his Ph.D. project. In 2011, he won the Czech Science Foundation Chair Award for discoveries in quantum physics.
Attended extended fellowship programs at the Max Planck Institute in Erlangen, Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby, and École Normale Supérieure in Paris.
Since 2014, he has worked as Research Director of the Center of Excellence for Classical and Quantum Interactions in Nanoworld that is involved in experimental and theoretical research on the interface between quantum and classical physics of optical and mechanical oscillators.
He teaches courses on laser physics, quantum optics, quantum optomechanics, radiation and matter interaction, and quantum informatics, and supervises postgraduate students and Ph.D. candidates.
In 2017, Jelínek became a member of the Neuron Science Board as an expert in Physics.
