Dr. Klemen Bučar works in the field of experimental atomic physics, specifically with study of deexcitation of excited atomic and molecular states after electron, ion or photon excitation. The decay products, namely electrons and photos, can give us information about the internal quantum states of the observed system and transition probabilities. He performs his experimental work in the JSI lab and on several European synchrotrons (Elettra, Fermi, Soleil, ESRF, Max lab, Desy, Bessy II), where he joined over 60 experiments in the last 15 years. His pedagogical activities include work at the University of Ljubljana (Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, courses Physical Lab I and II) and at Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School (Sensor technologies, course Photon, Electron and Ion Detection Sensors).
