Vít Procházka, born in 1980, has a permanent position at Palacký University Olomouc (since 2019) in the Czech Republic, performing research and teaching activities as an Associate Professor.
His research interests include: Mössbauer spectroscopy, nuclear resonant scattering and X-ray diffraction, development of Mössbauer spectrometers, experiments with application of synchrotron radiation, emission Mössbauer spectroscopy, theoretical calculations of resonantly scattered radiation and measurements of Lamb-Mössbauer factor. He took part ina number of synchrotron radiation experiments (DESY/Germany, ESRF/France) using various experimental techniques, e.g. NFS, NIS, EXAFS, XANES. Recently, he has shifted his focus on the application of nuclear resonant scattering in the field of gamma-optics and the utilization of radioactive sources for this purpose. This newly found interest includes development of an experimental equipment, design and conduction of experiments and their subsequent evaluation.
He has presented scientific results at numerous international scientific meetings (Ireland, Brazil, Germany, Slovakia, Russia, Italy) and published more than 40 peer-reviewed international papers (over 200 citations and H index = 8). More than 5 students have received the MS/Bc degree under his supervision. Currently he also supervises four Ph.D. students. Additionally, he regularly gives lectures on solid state physics and atomic and nuclear physics at Palacký University Olomouc.
