On Tuesday, November 8, the dissertation defense of our colleague Aleksandra Baskakova from the microwave group took place in meeting room No. 80 on the topic of New Microwave Components for Distance and Imaging Measurement. The supervisor of the work was prof. Ing. Karel Hoffmann, CSc. At the end of the defense, a fruitful discussion took place, which pointed to the topicality and practical applicability of the developed microwave components in practice. The commission made up of experts on the given topic clearly agreed on a positive outcome of the defense, and then an informal discussion took place in a relaxed atmosphere with glasses of beer, wine, sparkling wine, rum and plums:) We wish Dr. Baskaková much success in her future life!
