European Training Network on Visible light based Interoperability and Networking


The Wireless and Fiber Optics team lead by Prof. Zvanovec has got the prestigious international project H2020 - Marie Curie-Skłodowska - ITN “European Training Network on Visible light based Interoperability and Networking (VisIoN)” from the field of Visible light communications (VLC). Many prestigious universities and major industrial companies are involved:

  • Ecole Centrale Marseille (France)

  • Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (Germany)

  • Northumbria University, Newcastle (United Kingdom)

  • Universidad de las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain)

  • Instituto de Telecomunicações Aveiro (Portugal)

  • Ozyegin University (Turkey)

  • OSRAM GmbH, INDRA, Ford, OLEDCOMM, Philips, SQS Vláknová optika, EFACEC, Network Rail, LIghtbee

Outdoor trip


The department employees took part in the trip in Cecky raj. Besides the wonderful nature and neverending discussions, there was also a professional part including a measurement of the received signal attenuation in the outdoor environment.

A New Propagation Channel Synthesizer for UAVs in the Presence of Tree Canopies


In collaboration with University of Vigo, the Radiowave Propagation Team has now published an open access paper proposing a new UAV propagation channel synthesizer in the presence of tree canopies. The paper is published within a special issue "Recent Trends in UAV Remote Sensing" of a prestigious journal MDPI Remote Sensing and can be found here:

Jan Kracek was awarded in the Czech Head competition


On 22 November our graduet Jan Kracek was awarded the Doctorandus Price in technical sciences field in the Czech Head competition.

The main contribution of Dr. Kracek´s dissertation is an innovative concept of wireless power technology, combining approach of the electrical circuits theory which allows you to define general optimizable and measurable characteristics of transmission chains for wireless power, together with approach of the electromagnetic field theory, which binds characteristics with geometrical  and material properties of electromagnetic structures in wireless power supply.

The photogallery from the ceremony can be found here.

The dissertation defended by Milan Prihoda


Our PhD. student Milan Prihoda defended his thesis Microwave Methods for Interferometric Measurements.

Congratulations, Dr. Prihoda!

New project for the optical team


Wireless and fiber optics team and a company PROFiber Networking CZ s.r.o. received a new project from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. The project is focused on a developement of an analyser of optical components mode structure.

Best Student Paper Award


The authors from the optical team, namely Petr Chvojka, Stanislav Zvanovec and Petr Pesek, together with their colleagues Paul Anthony Haigh (University of Bristol, Bristol, UK) and Zabih Ghassemlooy (Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) were awarded a Best Student Paper Award (see the certificate here) at the OPTICS 2016 (7th International Conference on Optical Communication Systems) in Lisbon, Portugal.
