The main task of the technical team is to provide full technical support to the HiLASE Centre scientific team, starting with visualizations, through the construction of mechanical and opto-mechanical parts and equipment, through control systems to ensuring the running of workshops, laboratories, buildings and related technologies.
We are experienced specialists who deal with the technical aspects of scientific work. We provide development of our own mechanical structures for individual research teams. We specialize in the design of precise opto-mechanical devices with special requirements (IR radiation, vacuum, vibration, LN2 cooling, etc.).
Control system team
Our goal is to programme and build control systems for our laser centre. The field of application is wide: from automation of laser processes through the security system of persons and equipment to the design of electronics.
Jakub Horáček holds an engineering degree from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at TUL, specializing in automatic control systems. Currently, he is pursuing his PhD at the Faculty of Mechatronics, Informatics, and Interdisciplinary Studies at TUL. He possesses experience in various laser laboratories and their associated control systems. For instance, he collaborated with the LLNL HAPLS team in the development of diagnostic software. Since 2013, Jakub has been employed at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He joined the HILASE Centre team in 2017 in the capacity of a control systems engineer and has been serving as the head of the Engineering & Technical Support department since 2023.
