Optical fiber
In 2019, the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic commemorates 40 years since the launch of research into optical fiber technology in the Czech Republic.

SPIE organizes the Optics + Optoelectronics symposium every second year, in 2019 at the Congress Hotel Clarion in Vysočany in Prague on April 1 - 4. Apart from the fact that specialists from IPE preside over four subcofnerences out of 18, this year they prepared a novelty - a specialized workshop and a subsequent excursion to the laboratories of optical fiber technology in Suchdol, Prague. An important guest of the program will be Erich Spitz, a French physicist of Czech origin who will commemorate the extraction of the first single-mode optical fiber in the world.
