When two merge into one, it always brings more options. This can also be applied in the field of modern technology. What happens when we combine a laser and an optical fiber? We get a fiber laser - a source of a very intense and quality radiation beam, which has many applications.
Our student intern won 1st place in the Technology section at the III. Open Science student scientific conference called I am a young scientist! with his poster on Porous III-V semiconductors .
Europhysics News published an extract from our article called "Graphite/CdMnTe Schottky diodes and their electrical characteristic" in the Highlights from European Journals part of the magazine.
The two-day event was held in the conference room at Hotel DAP in Prague. The Technical Meeting of COST Action TD1001 (OFSeSa) was in the form of lectures on fiber sensors. A meeting of the Steering Committee of TD1001 took place at the end of the first day.
Jiří Homola, director of the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the AS CR, v. v. i., has been appointed professor of physics - quantum optics and optoelectronics - on the proposal of the Scientific Council of the Charles University in Prague, with the effect from 1 March, 2014.
Ondřej Kučera, a postdoctoral researcher of our Bioelectrodynamics team, was awarded the Werner von Siemens Award for the best doctoral dissertation in 2013
Alexander Kuna spoke about the second - the intangible, nevertheless one of the fundamental physical variables. Time itself is hard to describe, but it can be measured perfectly.
The TA ČR 2013 for the category of Original solution was awarded to the project entitled "Optical Packet Switch" on the creation of which our institute participated.
No one doubts that the invention of lasers has not only changed the world of technology but also the lives of the general public. The first laser beamed in California in 1960 and then in spring of 1963 in the Czech Republic. November 30, 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of the first laser university course which focused on teaching laser physics.
