Provider European Space Agency AO/1-6052/09/NL/CBI 2010-2011 Proposer Ing. Stanislav Pospíšil, DrSc,. UTEF ČVUT Praha Co-proposer Jiří Vacík, CSc., ÚJF AV ČR, v.v.i. Title Neutron Facilities in the Czech Republic for Calibration and Testing of ESA-Compliant Neutron-Sensitive Devices
The subject and principal aim of this proposal is the study and evaluation of neutron source facilities in the Czech Republic within preparatory activities for ESA purposes/needs. A parallel smaller part is the design and realization of short-term modifications of instruments. Long-term and major modifications and instrument upgrades can subject of future work.Read more...
Provider European Comission FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2011-1 Number 283883-NMI3-II 02/2012 - 01/2016 Proposer Joint project of European neutron and muon reseach facilities Title NMI3-II: THE INTEGRATED INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE FOR NEUTRON SCATTERING AND MUON SPECTROSCOPY (FP7)
The NMI3 project falls within the activity 'Research Infrastructures' of the EU 7th Framework programme. The Integrated Infrastructure Initiative for Neutron Scattering and Muon Spectroscopy (NMI3) brings together 21 partners from 13 countries, including 10 research infrastructures, together with other interested organisations (see overview on the web).
NPL is funded as one of the partners within the NMI3 program of FP7. Therefore, within its Access activities, we are able to support our users from EU member countries and associated states, except those from Czech Republic, by the reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses.
For more information on user access to the NPL experimental facilities, see this page.Read more...
Provider European Comission U1327500299137 2012 Proposer RNDr. Anna Macková, PhD., UJF AV ČR, v.v.i. Title Preparation and study of optical structures prepared by ion implantation Název Příprava a studium optický struktur připravených pomocí iontové implantace
The materials doped by erbium ions are currently used for optical signal amplification or generation. Important factors influencing the luminescence properties of a lasing ion is the surounding crystal field. In this project we would like to use the ion-implantation technique followed by subsequent annealing as a useful way to influence the crystal field of implanted ion in LiNbO3, ZnO and special glasses.
This project continue in previous projects SPIRIT no. 117 (2011) and RITA No. 025646 (2007-2009) .Read more...
