Laser physics and photonics (LASE)
Program coordinator: prof. Ing. Helena Jelínková, DrSc.
The Laser Physics group will further develop the existing research programs in ultra-intense and ultra-short pulse lasers, studies of laser plasmas, laser acceleration and particle production in connection with laser facilities like ELI Beam-lines, PALS and HiLASE. The group is also strongly involved in theory and simulation of laser plasma formation and evolution, in photonics and in optical spectroscopy. Laser physics and photonics are being dominantly studied at the FNSPE (http://kfe.fjfi.cvut.cz/kfe/en/research/index.html).
The LASE program’s work will be divided into five domains (sub-programs):
A) New active media and techniques for solid state lasers (Václav Kubeček)
B) Femtosecond laser interactions with targets (Jiří Limpouch)
C) Theoretical research into photonics and plasmonic structures (Ivan Richter)
D) Optoelectronics – photonics structures (Václav Prajzler)
E) Spectroscopy (Zdeněk Bryknar)
