Jewishness and Czechness in the Work of Viktor Fischel
Kodet, Jan ; Brožová, Věra (referee) ; Janoušek, Pavel (advisor)
Diplomová práce Židovství a češství v díle Viktora Fischla pohlíží na vybraná díla tohoto spisovatele s akcentem na problematiku židovství a češství. Věnuje se tvorbě člověka, jenž musel dvakrát emigrovat z rodné země, a zamýšlí se nad tím, jak jako syn židovských rodičů ve svém díle vlastní židovství reflektoval. Po úvodní části Dva domovy Viktora Fischla věnované autorově biografii je v tematickém oddílu Básník Viktor Fischl představena Fischlova poezie. Práce nahlíží na rozdíly mezi sbírkami, které básník napsal před válkou v Čechách a za války v emigraci. V části Prozaik Viktor Fischl je zachyceno autorovo hledání Boha tváří v tvář holocaustu. V povídkách zasazených do koloritu svatého města odhaluje, jak se autor dotýká židovské mentality, židovských zvyků a obyčejů a neopomíjí ani soudobou otázku napětí mezi Židy a Palestinci. O Fischlově češství pak vypovídá motiv krásy rodinných vztahů, Praha a archetyp české vesnice. Powered by TCPDF (
Movement in connection with space, structure and sound of material in architecture Josip Plečnik
Palátová, Dana ; KODET, Jan (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jitka (referee)
Being inspired by architecture and using non-traditional space for new dance production is nowadays an increasingly popular feature. This thesis extends the research on the functionality and operation of space on building the choreography; it looks at this relationship especially through dance, which is based on these two concepts. In my choreographic works, I focus on this issue as could have been also proved in my previous thesis Scenography and space in choreography of Sasha Waltz from 2011. When preparing chorographical and subsequently theoretical research for my diploma thesis, the procedures governing architects were practically applied to the movements. I observed the movement and creation process being influenced by my choreography. The work title also stresses out, except the space itself, the importance of texture, shape and sound materials in it that advance the creation of dance choreography. On this basis, I created choreographic principles which I analyze in detail also in my work. This work is divided into four main chapters. The first chapter is devoted to the issue of connecting architecture and dancing, its historical development, the concept of site specific performances, to the choreographers who work with this theme and particularly dance in sacred space. The second chapter describes the creations and bibliography of architect Josip Plecnik. He constructed the church of the Sacred Heart by which I was initially inspired for my choreography. This architectonical treasure is in more details described in the third chapter. The last chapter as the final shape is represented by the choreography Materia which was created on the basis of the findings from previous chapters that means of the spaces of Plečnik's church. An integral part of this thesis is a DVD attached, showing the performance Materia, and embedded images which shall serve for better orientation and visual imagination to the topic. The aim of this work is multiple: to point out the relationship between architecture and dance; to address the problems existing in contemporary dance due to its transfer into certain areas and propose possible solutions for avoiding that problem or using this issue for chorographical inspiration. In this work, I use a compilation method based on an analysis of the basic sources and documents and I add my own texts and knowledge gained during the process of creating this production. This piece can also serve as a source for further research in the field of choreography.
Event Timing Device Providing Subpicosecond Precision
Pánek, Petr ; Kodet, J. ; Procházka, I.
We are reporting on the latest experimental results achieved with an event timing device using a surface acoustic wave filter as a time interpolator. During the tests of the first version of the device, the noise of the filter excitation was identified as the dominant source of the measurement error. Therefore a new concept of the excitation with very low level of the noise energy was designed. This new solution led to considerable improvement of the device performance. It results from the experimental measurements that the single shot precision is repeatedly lower than 500 fs RMS when time marks generated synchronously with the time base are measured. When asynchronous time marks are split into two event timers and the resulting time difference is measured, the single shot precision is below 700 fs RMS per channel. In this case the measurement is affected not only by random errors, but also by non-linearity of the time interpolation. The temperature dependence is below 0.1 ps/K. Operating the device in a common laboratory environment without temperature stabilization, the stability TDEV better than 3 fs has been routinely achieved for range of averaging intervals from 10 s to several hours
Single Photons Optical TwoWay Time Transfer Providing Picosecond Accuracy
Procházka, I. ; Blažej, J. ; Kodet, J. ; Pánek, Petr
We are reporting on a new approach to an optical two-way time transfer based on signals of individual photons. This approach enables to reach extreme timing stabilities and minimal systematic errors using existing electro-optic technologies. In our indoor experiment we have achieved sub-picosecond precison and 3 ps accuracy of a two-way time transfer via free space optical channel. The entire system is compact and simple. It is a perspective technique for space application, where it might provide picosecond accuracies over space distances
Local ties controlin application of laser time transfer
Kodet, J. ; Schreiber, U. ; Eckl, J. ; Procházka, I. ; Pánek, Petr
In many fundamental physical experiments time plays an important role. The standard way for the comparison of time and frequency is the application of GNSS signals and the Two-Way Satellite Time and Frequency Transfer - TWSTFT. This technique is based on radiofrequency signal transmission. Recently, there was a rapid increase of optical time comparison development, which uses the Satellite Laser Ranging network (SLR). Currently the French project T2L2 is in operation on board of Jason 2 and the European Space Agency project ELT in support of the Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space (ACES) is under development. The goal of both projects is the time synchronization with a precision below 40 ps rms and an absolute error well below 100 ps. Comparing the results of the optical time transfer with the GNSS time comparison requires unprecedented control of the local ties between the different observation techniques. One of the possible methods is the application of the Two Way Time Transfer (TWTT) on a single coaxial cable. Such a system can be implemented using two or more event timers, which are interconnected by a standard coaxial cable.
VLBI receiver chain monitoring
Michálek, V. ; Kodet, J. ; Schreiber, U. ; Ploetz, Ch. ; Procházka, I. ; Pánek, Petr
he most demanding goal of the Global Geodetic Observing System initiative is the definition of station positions to an accuracy of 1mm and the corresponding velocities to 0.1 mm/year. The main remaining sources of error are caused by systematics, leading to intra- and inter- technique biases. In this work, we have focused on Very Long Base Interferometry (VLBI) and phase calibration generator currently in operation. This unit is injecting calibration tones into the detection chain through an input coupler located near the input of the antenna. The tones propagate further through entire detection chain and are recorded with the observed signal. Then they are extracted in post processing. These tones are generated out of an atomic frequency standard. The supplied frequency is significantly influenced by temperature and mechanical changes since usually a long cable is employed to bring the frequency to the calibration unit. To monitor the electrical length of the cable, calibration with a picosecond precision is essential. We have redesigned a phase calibration unit so that it enables the implementation of the Two Way Time Transfer (TWTT) method on single coaxial cable using two event timers to monitor the electrical length of the critical cable. Such a system has been installed in parallel to the unit currently in operation. The comparison of the TWTT method with previous measurement method is presented
Scenography and space in choreograpy of Sasha Waltz
Palátová, Dana ; Kodet, Jan (advisor) ; Wiesner, Daniel (advisor) ; Matásek, Petr (referee) ; Eliášová, Bohumíra (referee)
Sasha Waltz is not just a significant phenomenon in modern dance in Germany. Her artistic influences have overlapped into traditional ways of staging operas and erode cliché experiences, which are understood as static installations, such as museums. In the thesis I have tried to map the work of Sasha Waltz through space and her set design from the beginning of her career to the present. I had the opportunity to personally see and compare her debut and latest projects. To collect the main sources of my thesis about the work of Sasha Waltz, I spent several months gathering information and conducting personal interviews
