Secondary school students at the HiLASE Centre: Day of experimental physics

On Monday the 7th of November 2022, the HiLASE Centre welcomed a group of secondary school students who visited as part of the Day of experimental physics organised by FYKOS.

The students were welcomed by Ph. D. student from the Laser Shock Peening (LSP) group Ondrej Stransky. He prepared a lecture on the topic of lasers and their industrial use for the group. He introduced not only the LSP, LIDT (Laser Induced Damage Threshold) and LMM (Laser Micromachining) technologies which the Centre specialises in, but also other industrial applications.

Then, the group had the opportunity to have a look at the PERLA and BIVOJ laser system models in the lobby of the Centre.
