IAP-ASM experts visit ustutt
In February 2017, two experts from Institute of Applied Physics of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, Dr. Elena Achimova and Dr. Vladimir Abaskin, visited the Institute of Technical Optics, University of Stuttgart. During the visit, Moldavian researchers with their German colleagues, Dr. Giancarlo Pedrini and Dr. Daniel Claus, designed an installation for recording phase structure by application SLM and powerful laser VERDI. Moreover, new diffractive phase structures were recorded on the samples of Chalcogenide Glasses Nanomultilayers and Azo-died polymers prepared in Moldova. Below is a photo of the installation for recording:
The recorded diffractive phase structures were then investigated by using a digital holographic microscope available at the Institute of Technical Optics. It has been modified for this particular application. The results of the measurements with the holographic microscope have shown that the diffractive phase structures written on the chalcogenide material and azopolymers have complicated surface structure.
