Technical support

The main task of the technical team is to provide full technical support to the HiLASE 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. At the same time, the technical team ensures the safety of the building, laser laboratories and experimental workplaces. There are 14 engineers and technicians with many different specializations, divided into four groups.
