Feasibility study for the laser fabrication of three-dimensional microstructured scaffolds for cells with defined architecture out of biodegradable pre-polymers/td> Edvinas Skliutas Dr. Sima Rekštytė To investigate the suitability of various pure and photosensitized biodegradable pre-polymers for the laser fabrication of large-scale (~mm^2) microstructured scaffolds for cells By the end of the project it is expected to optimize laser radiation parameters needed for the fabrication of large-area microstructured scaffolds with defined architecture for cell growth experiments 2017 October 2 – 2018 April 30 Research Council of Lithuania (No. 09.3.3-LMT-K-712)
Femtosecond beam shaping along curved trajectories by means of glass phase masks Mykolas Karpavičius Prof. habil. dr. Valdas Sirutkaitis To investigate the possibility of forming accelarating beams with glass phase masks and to estimate the viability of their application in micromachining. By the end of the project we will manufacture glass phase masks that can form accelerating beams that are applicable for micromachining purposes. 2017 October 2 – 2018 April 30 Research Council of Lithuania (No. 09.3.3-LMT-K-712)
Measurement of photonic crystal fiber dispersion using cross-correlation frequency resolved optical gating (XFROG) technique Miglė Kuliešaitė Assoc. Prof., Dr. Vygandas Jarutis Apply a new experimental method for measurement of non-birefringent photonic crystal fiber dispersion and determine the accuracy of this method. At the end of the project cross correlation frequency resolved optical gating (XFROG) technique will be adapted for the measurement of highly nonlinear non-birefringent photonic crystal fiber dispersion 2 October 2017 – 30 April 2018.
