  • Remarkably stable metal-organic frameworks on an inert substrate: M-TCNQ on graphene (M = Ni, Fe, Mn) 

    Jakub, Zdeněk; Kurowská, Anna; Herich, Ondrej; Černá, Lenka; Kormoš, Lukáš; Shahsavar, Azin; Procházka, Pavel; Čechal, Jan (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2022-07-07)
    Potential applications of 2D metal-organic frameworks (MOF) require the frameworks to be monophase and well-defined at the atomic scale, to be decoupled from the supporting substrate, and to remain stable at the application ...
  • Rapid oxygen exchange between hematite and water vapor 

    Jakub, Zdeněk; Meier, Matthias; Kraushofer, Florian; Balajka, Jan; Pavelec, Jiří; Schmid, Michael; Franchini, Cesare; Diebold, Ulrike; Parkinson, Gareth S. (Nature Portfolio, 2021-11-10)
    Oxygen exchange at oxide/liquid and oxide/gas interfaces is important in technology and environmental studies, as it is closely linked to both catalytic activity and material degradation. The atomic-scale details are mostly ...
  • Polymer pencil leads as a porous nanocomposite graphite material for electrochemical applications: The impact of chemical and thermal treatments 

    Trnková, Libuše; Třísková, Iveta; Čechal, Jan; Farka, Zdeněk (Elsevier, 2021-05-01)
    Pencil graphite electrodes are a simple, disposable, and low-cost alternative to screen-printed graphite electrodes. In terms of stability and sensitivity, pencil electrodes often outperform conventional carbon ones. This ...

    Enhanced superconductivity of FeSe in the 2D limit on oxide surfaces as well as the prediction oftopological superconductivityat the interface to topological insulators makes the fabrication of Fe-chalcogenide monolayers ...
  • Complex k-uniform tilings by a simple bitopic precursor self-assembled on Ag(001) surface 

    Kormoš, Lukáš; Procházka, Pavel; Makoveev, Anton Olegovich; Čechal, Jan (Springer Nature, 2020-12-01)
    The realization of complex long-range ordered structures in a Euclidean plane presents a significant challenge en route to the utilization of their unique physical and chemical properties. Recent progress in on-surface ...
  • Single-layer graphene on epitaxial FeRh thin films 

    Uhlíř, Vojtěch; Pressacco, Frederico; Arregi Uribeetxebarria, Jon Ander; Procházka, Pavel; Průša, Stanislav; Potoček, Michal; Šikola, Tomáš; Čechal, Jan; Bendounan, Azzedine; Sirotti, F. (ELSEVIER, 2020-06-01)
    Graphene is a 2D material that displays excellent electronic transport properties with prospective applications in many fields. Inducing and controlling magnetism in the graphene layer, for instance by proximity of magnetic ...
