Mgr. Jan Jurcak, PhD. (*1978)
Research field: Observations of photospheric structures with high spatial resolution. The main interest is in the analysis of penumbral fine structure using spectroscopic and spectropolarimetric data. The analysis of Stokes profiles using the inversion code SIR (Stokes Inversion based on Response functions).
