Laser Engineer

If you are an ambitious person proficient in laser technology and would like to explore the fascinating world of laser development, join us! Don’t worry, you won’t be left alone, we offer support with the aim of your learning, training, an adequate degree of freedom, and a lot of enthusiasm that this work will bring you. We are making impossible things possible, we never give up and we push the frontier of Czech laser technology forward, each nanometer at a time.

About us:

The HiLASE Center is focused on the technological development of a new generation of diode-pumped solid-state lasers with a wide range of configurations for scientific and industrial applications. We are aiming at laser pulse durations in the range of fs, ps, and ns with laser designs of regenerative or multipass amplifiers, q-switched lasers, fiber lasers, and MOPA architectures. We currently have several projects to develop such systems and as we grow, we are looking for further support of the Commercial Laser Development team.
