Junior researcher Yevhenii Vaskivskyi was awarded SPO-2019 prize for the best poster presentation Investigation of metastable states in 1T-TaS2 by combining ultrafast spectroscopy with scanning tunneling microscopy in the 20th International Young Scientists Conference Optics and High Technology Material Science – SPO 2019, September 26 – 29, 2019, Kyiv, Ukraine.
Young researcher Jaka Vodeb was awarded SMEC Student Prize 2019 for an outstanding oral presentation Correlated Configurational States and a Quantum Charge Liquid in Layered Metallic Dichalcogenides in the international meeting Study of matter at extreme conditions (SMEC 2019), March 30 – April 06, 2019, Miami – East Caribbean – Miami.
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up, 40 foreigners were selected for a distinguished award by the Foreign Expert Medal of China’s State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs. After local recommendations, public voting, and expert review the list with the 40 laureates was finally presented by Lu Ming of the Ministry of Science and Technology at the China International Talent Exchange Conference held in Shenzhen in April 2018.
Among them is Dr. Romano A. Rupp, currently working as a guest researcher at the Jozef-Stefan Institute in Ljubljana. He received the medal dedicated to the “Most Influential Foreign Experts during 40 Years of China’s Reform” from Zhang Jianguo, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, during the Chinese New Year Reception in Beijing on January 27, 2019.
The award dedication says:
He is an expert in nonlinear optics and a distinguished researcher. He was the winner of the Sanqin Friendship Award. His research results won much attention and positive evaluations from the international scientific community and thus contributed to the enhancement of the academic level and the international reputation of the Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

On Friday, 18th January, 2019, the Dean of the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Prof. Dr. Anton Ramšak, presented the Faculty Prešeren Awards to the students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. Mimoza Naseska, a young researcher from our department, was one of the recipients of the Faculty Prešeren Award for her work titled “Ultrafast Spin Density Wave dynamics at intense optical pulse excitation”. The work was supervised by Assist. Prof. Dr. Tomaž Mertelj.
About the work
The experimental work for her master’s thesis was carried out at the Jožef Stefan Institute Department of Complex Matter. With the multipulse time-resolved optical spectroscopy, she investigated the femtosecond dynamics in iron pnictides with a spin density wave (SDW) state.
Using this technique she determined the fluence dependence of the timescale for optical destruction and recovery of the SDW state. She also found that the measured heating is significantly smaller than expected on the basis of the optical penetration depth data published in literature.
Dr. Ljupka Stojčevska Malbašić received the Best Poster Award at the 16th International Conference on the Formation of Semiconductor Interfaces (ICFSI 2017), for her paper: Study of the photoinduced hidden state in 1T-TaS2 single crystals doped with selenium by means of time-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (Co-authors from JSI; Asst. Prof. Tomaž Mertelj, Prof. Dr. Dragan Mihailović and Petra Šutar).
