PhD degree awarded to Marek Mezera

During an on-line session on October 16th, 2020, Marek Mezera successfully defended his PhD thesis, titled “Picosecond laser-induced periodic surface structures – Progress strategies for metals, silicon and polymers” and was awarded the degree of Doctor.

The work was carried out at the Chair of Laser Processing at the University of Twente, under the supervision of prof. Gert-willem Römer and dr. Dave Matthews. Committee members were prof. Koopman (University of Twente), prof. Lasagni (Technical University Dresden, Germany), prof. Li (University of Manchester, UK), dr. Bonse (BAM, Germany), prof. Akkerman (University of Twente) and prof. van der Heide (University of Twente). The now Dr. Mezera was an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) of the Laser4Fun project. The public defense ceremony took place on-line at the University of Twente and the audience could “attend” the event partly through a video stream.

We congratulate Marek with this achievement!
