Jan VANDA was born in Czech Republic. He received his Ph.D. from VSB-TU Ostrava in 2009 at the department of telecommunications in the field of optoelectronics. After short experience in industry as quality manager, he joined for one year FORTH-IESL as a post-doc in the Marie-Curie program. Post-doc programme was followed several months position in the area of developing printed Fresnel lenses and one-year experience in Czech Office of Standards Metrology and Testing as national secretary in IEC. Since 2011, he is working as a researcher at Institute of Physics, ASCR, in the HiLASE Centre, where is he in charge of LIDT laboratory. His research interests include fiber optics, photonics, lasers and laser induced damage threshold.
