For scientists

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.
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.
