Jan Pilař at Radio Junior

Our colleague Jan Pilař, who works on the development of the Bivoj laser system at the HiLASE Centre (FZU), was a guest of Radio Junior on Tuesday 17.1.2023. The presenters Jana Rychterová and Patrik Ondříček talked to him about what a laser is, who invented it, why it is called that, what it is used for and how it actually works. Listen to the full interview (in CZ) to find out more about lasers. You’ll even learn how far a laser can reach, how we can cut with it, why people developed it, or what type of laser is used in laser tag.
