Opportunities in Prague to advance your research
The conference offers 18 tracks covering a wide range of optoelectronic technologies - see how these advances may directly impact your area of research. Top submissions include: optical sensors, holography, high-power, high-energy, and high-intensity lasers, integrated optics, non-linear optics, laser acceleration - and much more.
Prague features the ELI beamlines facility - the gateway to new regimes in fundamental physics. The facility utilizes high-power, high-repetition-rate lasers for high-field physics experiments.
The ELI facility is the first international laser user facility, and opens a new era of laser-based research, attracting the world's best researchers to world-wide unique research opportunities.
ELI beamlines technologies push beyond the physical limits of conventional technologies, offering societal benefits in medicine, contributing further to what is known about material science, investigating the aging processes in materials under extreme conditions (nuclear reactors), as well as work toward helping to protect the environment by offering new ways to treat nuclear waste.
Prague, the capital, is not only the cultural and tourist nexus of the nation but also the economic one. Some of the companies doing business there, and in the Czech Republic at large, include: HP, Boeing, Oracle, Honeywell, Avast, Thermo Fisher /Microsoft Innovation Centers, and Siemens.
Prague continues to be an important centre for research. It offers of 39 out of 54 institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and is the headquarters for the Institute of Physics, as well as the Institute of Photonics and Electronics, the Institute of Plasma Physics, and the Institute of Experimental Medicine.
