Task 2

The second task of National Research Programme 'Towards future technologies' – to acquire specialised research competences and skills required in relation to joining the ESA space infrastructure development technological programmes, and developing the research intended to develop the electromagnetic radiation generation, transmission and recording methods. Two measures have been envisaged with respect to the second task under the Programme:

1. Carrying out of fundamental and applied research with a view to developing electromagnetic radiation sources, generation systems and the materials required for them:

  • development of new generation electromagnetic radiation sources and their components by nanotechnology methods;
  • development of optoelectronic systems using new generation electromagnetic radiation sources;
  • development of ultra-short impulse (picosecond and femtosecond) solid state and fibre lasers, related coatings and optical components;
  • development of micrometric and nanometric material processing methods;
  • development of new generation functional and smart, nano-structural materials by design for new generation sources and generation systems;
  • it is intended that 4-6 projects will be implemented under this measure.

2.  Carrying out of fundamental and applied research with a view to developing electromagnetic radiation sensors, registration systems and the materials required for them:

  • broadband and selective sensors and their components developed according to nanotechnology methods;
  • development of photonic, plasmonic, ionic and other sensors according to carbon electronics principles;
  • development of new generation spectroscopic, imaging, telecommunication, detection systems and their components (lenses, filters, modulators, waveguides, etc.);
  • development of new generation functional, smart, nano-structural substances having qualities required for sensors and registration systems;
  • it is intended that 6-8 projects will be implemented under this measure.
