The division focuses especially on the methods of precision mechanical engineering in mechanical and opto-mechanical devices including opto-electronics. We work in areas such as micro-machining, classical and wave optics or holography. Using our interdisciplinary knowledge we build unique devices and instruments such as a device for measurement of variable surface reflectance of materials, miniature eye endoscope, solar eclipse telescope etc. In our designs we work with many academics and industrial partners such as Meopta Optika s.r.o. – development of diagnostic methods and settings of optical systems, SQS Vláknová optika a.s. – development and numerical simulation for fiber optical systems, Stavus a.s. – development of optical and detection systems. In the academic domain we work together for example with the Institute of Scientific Instruments, Czech Academy of Sciences, and with partners abroad such as CERN – project OSQAR or JIRN Dubna.
