Prof. Károly Osvay Lecture
We hosted Prof. Károly Osvay from the renowned Institute for the Application of High Intensity Laser in Nuclear Physics, Department of Optics and Quantum Electronics, University of Szeged, Hungary.
Prof. Osvay delivered a seminar on the topic: Ultrashort pulse laser developments and applications: from a university lab to the ELI-ALPS facility.
The University of Szeged started its first scientific research in the field of optics and spectroscopy back in the 1950s and the first laser was used 50 years ago. Research has continued over the years, and in 1998 Tewati Laser System and related laboratories were established. Recently, the University of Szeged achieved new success with the opening of the ELI-ALPS facility in 2017.
In addition to the development of laser diagnostics and phase envelope stabilization, selected experimental results from Tewati Laboratory were presented as ultra-fast measurements of the photo-cycle of a protein and its potential for ultra-fast computation, etching with a resolution below 100 nm from fused silica and femtosecond ellipsometry.
Researchers from the Institute of Physics Ivan Balog and Damir Dominko hosted the seminar and after the lecture the seminar participants asked questions and discussed with Prof. Osvay as a top authority and one of Hungary’s leading scientists in the development of a laser neutron source.
