About Jiri Ctyroky
He graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Since then he has been with the Institute of Photonics and Electronics in Prague. He is also professor of Applied Physics at the Czech Technical University. His main interest has been in physics, design and simulations of photonic and plasmonic devices.
About Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences
The Institute of Photonics and Electronics is one of 52 independent public research institutions of the Czech Academy of Sciences. It performs basic and applied research in the fields of optical (bio)sensors, nano-optics, fiber lasers, nonlinear optics, bioelectrodynamics, and nanomaterials for opto- and microelectronics.
The yearly Optical Wave and Waveguide Theory and Numerical Modelling (OWTNM) workshop has, since 1992, provided a forum for lively debates, intended to bring forward new ideas in the field of theoretical and computational photonics.
Basic physics and novel applications, artificially structured materials and new devices, elegant mathematical techniques and efficient numerical methods to tackle the Maxwell equations form the constantly evolving subjects. These are discussed in a traditionally open and relaxed atmosphere.
