Anton Ramšak.jpgProf. Dr. Anton Ramšak holds a master's degree in Nuclear Physics from the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Ljubljana, and a PhD in the Gap Dynamics of Oxide Superconductors from the University of Ljubljana. He has been employed at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana since 1985. In 2005, he was appointed Full Professor of Physics. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow from 1991 to 1992 at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart. He is a regular guest researcher and lecturer at King's College London, Oxford University, QinetiQ, Imperial College London, University College London, and Complutense University Madrid.

In his doctoral dissertation, and also in his later work, Professor Anton Ramšak theoretically studied quantum models of strongly correlated electrons, including the coupling of electrons with magnons and phonons, and models for the description of high-temperature superconductors. For the last two decades, he has been conducting research on the theory of quantum systems, and especially nanoscopic systems, more specifically on the physical properties of quantum dots and quantum wires, the generation of quantum entanglement, the manipulation of quantum bits and quantum phases, and the properties of topological insulators. He has also investigated the phenomenon of quantum entanglement in the context of a comparison between the standard Copenhagen and Bohm interpretations of quantum mechanics. In these fields, he has led the Slovenian research group in several international and domestic projects. The most recent project carried out at the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) is related to the quantum transfer of information based on quantum entanglement. Professor Ramšak publishes his scientific research in the highest-ranking journals in the field of physics. In 2021, he published the monograph Quantum Mechanics (University of Ljubljana Press). His doctoral students have established themselves as successful teachers at the University of Ljubljana or become researchers at institutes and high-tech companies.

At the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Professor Ramšak has taught Theoretical Physics, Statistical Physics, and now for many years Quantum Mechanics and Classical Mechanics. He taught Statistical Physics at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste for two years.

He served as Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Ljubljana for three terms (2013-2015, 2017–2019, 2019–2021). Between 2011 and 2013, he was Head of the Physics Department and Vice-Dean for research. He was President of the Commission for Master's Studies at the University of Ljubljana (two terms, 2007–2013). Between 2006 and 2010 he was a member of the Scientific Research Council for Natural Sciences at the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS), and between 1997 and 2003 he was Chair of the National Exam Committee for High School Physics (two terms).

He was elected the Vice-Rector of the University of Ljubljana for research and development, for a period from 1st October 2021 to 30th September 2025.
