Scientists have a very good idea of how the individual proteins fit together and know their structure very well. But we know very little about exactly how molecules perform their work in real time, because the processes are simply not visible. That is why the Nano-Optics Science team led by Marek Piliarik builds microscopes that cross the boundaries of conventional microscopy.
Come see inside our laboratories. Do not hesitate and register today, the capacity is limited!
Optical Biosensors team organized 10th Advanced Study Course on Optical Chemical Sensors – ASCOS2017: Biochemical sensors in medicine (July 20 - July 27, 2017). ASCOS 2017 was held in beautiful setting of Castle hotel Třešť in Czech Highland region under the support of Czech Academy of Sciences.
Erika Gedeonová won 1st prize in the Young Scientists’ Session at the XVII Workshop of Physical Chemists and Electrochemists. Congratulations!

Multi-conference SPIE Optics and Optoelectronics was organized at Prague under chairing of Prof. Homola within April 24-27, 2017. President of the Czech Academy of Sciences Prof. Eva Zažímalová welcome all 700 participants at the beginning. In frame of this meeting an excursion to Institute of Photonics and Electronics was organized on April 25 and experiments of preform preparation and drawing of optical fibers was demonstrated.
Institute of Photonics and Electronics CAS organized seminar 3BIO: Biophotonics and Bioelectronics for Biomedicine on Friday Nov 25, 2016.
Jiří Homola has been elected to the Photonics21 Board of Stakeholders. Photonics21 is the European Technology Platform, which represents the photonics community of industry and research organizations and develops a common photonics strategy for future research and innovation in Europe.
The foundation Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdeňky Hlávkových awarded excellent Czech scientists and academics as well as extraordinary activities of students from Czech universities and the Czech Academy of Sciences.
Urban mobility, CO2 capture and storage, integrated photonics and smart systems for personalized health-care were the four themes of interdisciplinary symposium EU-US Frontiers of Engineering that was hold from 17 to 19 October 2016 at Aalto University near Helsinki, Finland. About 60 outstanding engineers from Europe and the USA around the age of 30-45 years were selected to attend the symposium. The photonics session was co-chaired by Pavel Peterka from the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.


IPE carries out fundamental and applied research in the scientific fields of photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. In these fields, IPE generates new knowledge and develops new technologies.
