OPSA - Centre of Excellence for
Optical Spectroscopy Applications in Physics
The aim of this project is to improve the level of scientific
and technological research in the Centre for Solid State Physics and
New Materials of Institute of Physics in order that it should become
the Centre of Excellence for Optical Spectroscopy Applications
(OPSA) in Physics, Material Science and Environmental Protection.
The OPSA Centre should contribute to improving the existing and
establishing new links with European Centers in the field of
applications of the advanced spectroscopy techniques in diverse
fields of the natural science, through the active exchange of
scientists between OPSA Centre and European institutes and
universities, international workshops and training of young
The main objectives of the Centre of excellence for OPSA are as
•To promote long term research into understanding phenomena,
mastering processes and developing research tools in the field of
Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies through an upgrade and renew of our
•To develop human potential by educational and training activities.
•To promote cooperative research and technological and educational
activities between research centers, universities and industry in
the field of Micro- and Nano-technologies and Microsystems.
The OPSA project addresses the following thematic area of FP6
Programme: 3.4.1 Nanotechnologies and nanosciences. In particular
this project contributes to: 188.8.131.52 Long-term interdisciplinary
research into understanding phenomena, mastering processes and
developing research tools.
