16th May, 2010 marks an important anniversary - 50 years since Theodor Maiman lit up the first laser ever.

Our country succeeded shortly thereafter. Our Institute was one of the first three workplaces in the former Czechoslovakia which independently managed to run the laser within a few weeks of spring 1963. We have also subsequently achieved many major accomplishments in this area.
