Nositelé medaile Jana Marka Marci z Kronlandu


prof. Marcel Miglierini

Marcel Miglierini graduated in 1981 from the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava where he works since then at the Institute of Nuclear and Physical Engineering. In 1995, he has received the Doctor of Science degree and in 1997 was appointed as a full professor in physics of condensed matter at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava.

In 1990, he was granted the Monbuscho fellowship and has performed an 18-month research at Osaka University in Japan. In 1995, he has obtained scholarship from the Région du Pays de la Loire and accomplished a 11-month stay at Université du Maine, Le Mans, France. Further long-term stays abroad comprise a 10-month research in 1998-99 at the Universität Wien, Austria as a visiting scientist, 2-month lecture stay in 1992 in Japan and a 2-month stay in 2001 at Georg August Universität Göttingen in Germany as a DAAD fellow. Major fields of scientific interests include magnetic and structural properties of disordered materials prepared by rapid quenching and/or mechanical grinding (amorphous metallic glasses, quasicrystals, nanocrystals, powder steels) and their hyperfine interactions, structural positions of iron in archaeological, biological, chemical, geological, mineralogical, and metallurgical systems. They are studied predominantly by nuclear spectroscopy methods (Mössbauer, NMR, electron-positron annihilation, gamma spectroscopy), atomic and magnetic field microscopy and by special analytical techniques based on synchrotron radiation.

He has published 230+ original papers (175+ in international scientific journals) and one chapter in a book. He has acted as editor of 8 scientific proceedings that were published as books by Kluwer and American Institute of Physics. The number of citations indexed in WOS is 1 200+ with h = 16. He has delivered more than 30 invited lectures at universities abroad and had 27 invited lectures at international conferences. He was declared by the Mössbauer Effect Data Center, Asheville, USA as one of the four most productive authors in the field of Mössbauer spectrometry worldwide during the years 1990-2000. In 2011, he was awarded the title Professor of the Year at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava and in 2015 he was declared at the same university as the Scientist of the Year.

Since 1994, he organizes the series of international conferences entitled Mössbauer Spectrometry in Materials Science which are regularly held every two years. In 1998 and 2002, he was one of the directors of NATO Advanced Research Workshops. He was a member of organizing and program committees of 20+ international conferences. During 2004-2009, he was a chairman of Knowledge Management Committee of the ENEN Association (European Nuclear Education Network). He has organized and chaired the Winter School of Synchrotron Radiation 2011, 2013, 2014 with international participation.

He represents Slovakia in the International Board on the Application of the Mössbauer Effect (since 1998) and in the consortium CENTRALSYNC which ensures access to the synchrotron source in Grenoble for researchers from the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia (since 2008). During 2010-2011, 2013-2014, and 2015-2016 he was a chairman of the Steering Committee of this consortium. Since 2003, he is a president of the Slovak Spectroscopic Society.
