The Scientific Advisory Committee of EPJ is delighted to welcome Dr. Libor Juha as the new representative for the Czech Physical Society.
Libor Juha obtained his Ph.D. degree at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Engineering Physics of the Czech Technical University in Prague in June 1995. He is the head of the Department of Radiation and Chemical Physics of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the scientific director of the PALS (Prague Asterix Laser System) Research Centre, the joint laboratory between the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He performs experimental investigations of various phenomena occurring on the border between the high-energy-density physics and the high-energy chemistry. His main current research activities are associated with a characterization and applications of XUV/x-ray lasers of various kinds. In addition to that, he is lecturing at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Engineering Physics of the Czech Technical University in Prague and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague. He spent ten years (2008-2017) in the service to communities of Czech and Slovak physicists as the editor-in-chief of the Czecho-Slovak Journal of Physics - Československý časopis pro fyziku, one among several successors to the Journal for Cultivation of Mathematics and Physics - Časopis pro pěstování mathematiky a fysiky founded in Prague in 1872.
