Spectroscopies in materials research

We do research in materials science using optical and THz spectrocopies. The applications are related to industry, biomedicine, pharmacy and monitoring of pollution of water and nano safety of food liquids. The group has devoted also to design innovative optical sensors for practical use in various industrial sectors.
