Added 12. 07. 2018 to category News

DSCN7430On Monday, July 9, 2018, almost 60 students and teachers of the renowned International Travelling Summer School on Microwaves and Lightwaves visited the HiLASE and ELI Beamlines Laser Centers in Dolní Břežany. The 28th anniversary of the summer school was held in the Czech town of Liblice and is organized by the Institute of Scientific Instruments of the CAS, v.v.i. (ISI). Postgraduate students from ten different European countries appreciated the opportunity to explore top scientific centers in the Czech Republic and to compare the centres‘ research with their own knowledge of the fields of high-frequency electronics, optics, laser and microwave technologies. The event was intended for graduates of electrotechnical faculties of technical universities (microwave and high frequency electronics), but also for graduates of science faculties (physical electronics, or optics and photonics).

DSCN7389On Monday 2. 7. 2018, a delegation from the influential Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials visited us to get acquainted with the possibilities of laser development and research at the HiLASE Center. Our team members presented HiLASE high energy nanosecond Bivoj laser, Perla laser system and microchip and fiber lasers. Moreover, the HiLASE Center laser technology for micro-machining, measurement and improvement of durability and performance of the materials were also introduced. Finally, both partners signed the Memorandum of Cooperation. The meeting was attended by the representative of the Korean Press. Together, we believe we will build on successful cooperation with the Korean Electronics Technology Institute, Korean Technical Universities and companies.

SPIE Photonics West 2018

Added 07. 02. 2018 to category News

01HiLASE researchers participated at the world’s largest annual event for the photonics, laser, and biomedical optics industries. SPIE Photonics West 2018 took place from January 27 till February 1, 2018 in the Moscone Center, San Francisco, United States. The presentations included three technology areas: BIOS (Biophotonics, Biomedical Optics, and Imaging Conference), LASE (Industrial Laser, Laser Source, and Application Conference) and OPTO (Optoelectronics, Photonic Materials and Devices Conference).

edfHiLASE scientists contributed to the conference by one invited paper presented by Danijela Rostohar, 3 presentations (Michal Chyla, Jitka Cernohorska and Jan Pilar) and 2 posters (Michal Vyvlecka, Jan Pilar). The business development team attended the Photonics West Exhibition. HiLASE booth attracted the visitors that were interested in excellent laser technologies such as world record-breaking superlaser “Bivoj”, delivering 1 kW of average power or industrial laser applications (LIDT, LSP etc.). Moreover, HiLASE crew shared the goals and challenges of new Horizon 2020 project called „HiLASE – Center of Excellence“ which was established last year in partnership with the Central Laser Facility (STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory). SPIE Photonics West 2018 was the flagship event for the photonics industry and it was a great opportunity for discussions, networking and establishing new partnerships.
