Jiří Tuček received his PhD. in Applied Physics at the Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in 2008. In 2013, he became an Associate Professor at the Department of Experimental Physics at the Faculty of Science of the Palacky University. He is currently a Senior Researcher at the Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials, Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic. In 2015, he was appointed as a part-time lecturer at the Graduate School of Science, The University in Tokyo. He is the author or co-author of more than 90 publications, author of one chapter in the book, and co-editor of processings from the international colloquium on “Mössbauer Spectroscopy in Materials Science”. His research interests include magnetism in the nanoworld, particularly the magnetic behavior and properties of iron-containing compounds such as iron and iron oxide nanosystems, 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, and carbon nanostructures.
