Members of the Chapter

You may be also interestein in the history of memberships or the history of officiers.

Prof. Jan Franc: Official website

Zdeněk Kašpar: President

I study at the Charles University PhD. programme Physics of Nanostructures. I focus on antiferromagnetic spintronics, mainly electrical transport measurements. I am a SPIE/OSA member since 2014. My function as an officier is a treaserer. I also participate in our chapter's propagation activities. Being a member of this organization is a great opportunity to try and learn many new things. From grant applications to present a talk in front of people. And those skills are not common in school… As a chapter's officier I attended a student workshop and conference Frontiers in Optics/Laser Science in Rochester NY. LinkedIn profile.

Martin Rejhon: PR

I study Ph.D. programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the Charles University, department of Quantum Optics and Optoelectronics, I focus on the semiconductor X-rays detectors. Furthermore, I study the epitaxial graphene on SiC surface, this research is supported by grant agency of the Charles University. I have been a member of SPIE since 2014 and I actively participate in the Demonstrations of Physics on Schools. ORCID ID:

Vojtěch Vozda: Sectretary

I am a PhD student at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles Univ., department of Quantum Optics and Optoelectronics. My field of interest is interaction of short-wavelength intense radiation with matter. I am the member of SPIE for several years and I am trying to help with the chapter managment and propagate physics (especially optics) to younger students and to general public. During my free time I do many sports and travel. The most interesting experience are written on my blog

David Wagenknecht: Vice President

I have been member of the Chapter since an academic year 2013/2014. I participate in the Demonstrations of Physics on Schools project and during the performances on high school I usually have sessions connected to light-emitting diodes, lasers or another optical topics. In my position as an officer of the Chapter, I focus especially on organising activities for members and I am the administrator of this website. My field of interest in the present PhD program at Charles University is a condensed matter physics and ab initio calculations; I received a master's degree after graduating from quantum quantum optics and optoelectronics. See my website for more information about me:

Martin Zukerstein: Treasurer

I am a PhD student at the Department of Chemical Physics and Optics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. I focus on ultrafast laser spectroscopy of semiconductors, nonlinear optics and laser physics. I am the member of SPIE & OSA student chapter since 2015. In the same year I became its vicepresident and organizer of the project Demonstrations of Physics on Schools.
