Wroclaw University of Science and Technology devotes much attention to new technologies and new fields of technology. Faculty of Microsystem Electronics and Photonics educates in the fields of electronic engineering and photonics, optoelectronics and fiber optics. Scientific work is carried in the field of design, measurement and analysis of photonic devices. In the Faculty of Electronics Group of Laser and Fibre Electronics is dealing with MOPA systems, fiber vibrometry, miniaturization and integration of lasers. Another Group is involved in designing and building fiber lasers using special fibers, optical study of human tissues and building fiber-optic networks.
At the Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology work: Fiber Optics Group and the Laboratory of Optical Spectroscopy of Nanostructures. The activities of the first concerns the modeling, characterization and applications of fiber optic systems for detection, communication and nonlinear frequency conversion. The OSN Laboratory conducts research of: semiconductor structures for photonics, time-dependent phenomena in photonic nanostructures and production of nanomaterials for biophotonics and photovoltaics.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering educates and is active in the field of laser usage for obtaining special purpose materials. Cooperation with many European centers, results in the participation in the European Framework Programmes. Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology is coordinating scientific activities.
