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 will not be left alone, we offer support with the aim of your learning, training, adequate degree of freedom and a lot of enthusiasm that this work will bring you. We make impossible things possible, we never give up and we push the boundaries of Czech laser technology forward, every nanometer.

About us:
The HiLASE Center focuses 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 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 additional support of the Commercial Laser Development team.
