Two members of OptiCE team (Radek Poboril and Jan Vitasek) attended the exhibition LASER World of Photonics 2015 in Munich on 23rd June. Many companies offering products and solutions in photonics attended this exhibition. The most companies were from Europe, a plentiful representation also had Asian companies (China, Japan) or companies from North America. The most of exhibited products were aimed for an automatization of flow production. However, we are closer to the companies like Thorlabs, Edmund Optics, OceanOptics, Laser Components or NewPort which also offered their products. We examined and compared in detail NewPort optomechanic components with Thorlabs components.
In the days of 19th to 22nd April, the members of the OptiCE team (Jan Vitásek, Stanislav Hejduk, Petr Šiška, Petr Koudelka, Jan Látal, Lukáš Hájek, Aleš Vanderka, Radek Pobořil and Adrej Líner) have been trained to work with simulation software LightTools by dr. Mertinem Djiangem from Light Tec company. This training was aim on basic work and optimization of light sources and it was supported by the ExCom project.
In the days of 26th March to 3rd April, the members of the OptiCE team (Vladimír Vašinek, Petr Šiška, Petr Koudelka and Jan Látal) have been trained in the Optiwave Inc. headquarters in Ottawa (Canada). The aim of this training was to increase expertise in working with simulation software OptiFDTD, OptiSPICE, OptiGratting. In addition, our members visited Carleton University, where they established cooperation with the prof. Winnie N. Ye. And on this occasion, they do not forget to visit prof. Cheben in the National Research Center (National Research Council Canada), where they discussed the possibilities of cooperation between the NRC center and the OptiCE team.
Representatives of the OptiCE team (Vladimír Vašinek, Petr Šiška and Andrej Líner) presented their results at the SPIE Photonics West 2015 conference. The conference took place from 7th to 12th February 2015 in San Francisco (USA). During the conference, members of the OptiCE team presented four posts with these topics: Ageing of fiber optical devices, Software design of segment optical transmitter for indoor free-space optical networks, Software design of optical link for indoor wireless optical communication network used LEDs as source visible light communication and RFoG deployment into the next-generation networks.
Dear colleagues and students,
We would like to invite you to a seminar "Invitation to Telecommunications Educational Seminar aimed at Integrated optics" by internationally renowned person prof. Dr. Pavel Chebeň. The seminar will be take place in lecture halls EC2 and EC3 on 29-30 January 2015.
The members of the OptiCE team Jakub Čubík, Stanislav Kepák and Andrej Líner attended practical internship at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow during the period from September to December 2014. Under the leadership of prof. Ivan Glesk, they participated on solving of projects, acquired new experience and knowledge in the field of optical sensors, gain an overview of practical experience in instrumentation and software equipment of local the laboratories and improve their presentation and communication skills in English. In the free time, they got to know not only the Glasgow but also other cultural sights and technical attractions of Scotland.
Dear members, colleagues, collaborators and students,
with great pleasure we announce you, that it managed to submit the HORIZON 2020 project. This project is called "Sensor Network as Internet of Things" in terms of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. This project is aimed to support young researchers in their activities in terms of PhD studies at the visiting University, in the development of specialized and interdisciplinary scientific knowledge across sectors and research orientation towards practice. The main goals of the program include transnational and inter-sectoral mobility and breaking the barriers between academic and professional spheres which allows scientists to gain new skills and a broader scope of competencies. On the project MSCA, EU has allocated 6162 million for the period from 2014 to 2020 and this money will subsidize 25 000 students in doctoral programs. Our team is enrolled in this project together with 8 academic institutions and 15 partners from the industrial sector managed by the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.
