About us

We are part of the University Institute of New Technologies (NTC) at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, Czech Republic. Our team specialises in the innovative use of infrared radiation and thermal processes across a wide range of technical and non-technical applications. In our state-of-the-art laboratories, we conduct practical research and development to verify new solutions and create unique, customized technologies for our partners and customers. Our work aims to push the boundaries of what is possible with infrared and thermal technologies.

We are committed to developing environmentally friendly technologies that promote sustainability. We champion gender equality in research and support polytechnic education to motivate the next generation of scientists and innovators.


Our Infrared Technologies team currently consists of 25 professionals (including 1 Professor, 2 Associate Professors).

Laboratories and equipment

Our application laboratories include:

  • IR measuring systems (infrared cameras, spectrometers, infradetectors)
  • IR radiation sources (continuous and pulsed lasers, halogen and flash lamps, black bodies)
  • Positioning and Sample Handling (industrial robots)
  • Surface and Material Analysis (microscopes and profilometers)
  • Functional Sample Construction and Verification (additional equipment needed for the construction of functional samples of new measuring/testing systems and verification of their properties)


We are involved in the activities of professional organizations in the Czech Republic and abroad. For solving research and educational projects, we can offer our established cooperation with manufacturers of laser technology and infrared radiators, manufacturers of measuring systems and detectors, manufacturers of machinery and equipment, integrated rescue system in the Czech Republic and other research and educational institutions.
