Well known for his active role in the field of thermal conductivity, Ludovit Kubicar began his scientific career when he attended the Technical University of Bratislava, where he studied Solid State Physics. In 1997, Dr. Kubicar took on the role of symposium coordinator at the Institute of Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava. Kubicar was the lead developer of the transient technique to measure specific heat, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of materials, and co-authored the patents for the pulse method and hot-ball method. He also participated in various studies at prestigious institutes, including the National Physical Laboratory, the University of California, the National Metrology Institute of Germany, and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan. In 2000, Kubicar received the “INCHEBA 2000” award at the 32nd International Chemical Fair in Bratislava for his Thermophysical Transient Tester RT 1.02.
