Energy crisis: seminar has brought the perspectives of research and application communities closer together

News: Institute of Physics - Sun, 29/01/2023 - 17:16
Will we be left with high electricity bills and is the transmission network in the Czech Republic sufficiently dimensioned? Current topics of the last months became the subject of the Current and Future Energy workshop, which was organized in the Solid21 lecture hall on January 17 by the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where research into renewable sources is running e.g. within the Pilatus project. The invitation to take part in the discussion was accepted by Jan Bartoš from the Czech Transmission System Operator (ČEPS) and Pavel Řežábek, the Chief Economist of ČEZ.

Transmission optical elements for banknote and document security using selective deposition of thin film structure

News: Institute of Physics - Thu, 15/12/2022 - 09:34
The subject of the present project is to develop completely new optical security features that can be used on modern banknotes and plastic documents with transparent areas. The innovation of the solution lies in the combination of the inscription of specific micro- and nanostructured elements and the selective sputtering and reactive sputtering of thin layers, multilayers of metals and metal oxides that exhibit defined inhomogeneity. The project is carried out in effective cooperation between IQS Group s.r.o. and FZÚ AV ČR, v. v. i.
