Patrik Švančara

Institution Nottingham
About Patrik Švančara is a low-temperature physicist. He is interested in the hydrodynamics of superfluids, especially He II, the superfluid phase of liquid helium-4. He obtained his PhD at the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, where he studied turbulence in He II experimentally, focusing on the flow visualisation and second sound attenuation techniques. He then joined the group of professor Weinfurtner at the University of Nottingham in late 2021 as a postdoctoral research fellow. His goal is to design and operate set-ups cooled down nearly to absolute zero temperature, in order to explore analog gravity systems in superfluid helium.
