Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014

12.11.2013
International conference, April 8-9, 2014

“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will be hosted on April 8-9, 2014 by Fraunhofer IPT in cooperation with Fraunhofer ILT and the Institute of Plastics Processing IKV.

The international conference focuses on optical polymer components. Addressees of the event are participants from industry and research who are interested in manufacturing methods and the application potential of optical polymer products. Central to the conference are the following topics:

• Illumination optics
• Light guides
• Imaging optics
• Special optics
“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will deliver a clearly focused and structured insight into the technological limits of polymer optics. The application-orientated, interdisciplinary presentations will aim to explain developments along the manufacturing process chain of optical polymer components. Acclaimed experts from industry and research will discuss current technologies and will present their ideas for future polymer optics developments.

Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

The aim of the Fraunhofer IPT is to develop new and optimize existing
solutions through practice-oriented research and development.
The Fraunhofer IPT transfers the results of this R&D directly
into practice in client companies, which come from a wide range
of industries – the automotive industries and its suppliers, especially
tool and die making, as well as fine-mechanics and optical
industries, aerospace industries and machine tool manufacturers.
Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT
The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, founded in
1985, is one of the most important contracting research and development
institutes of its sector worldwide. Its experts develop
and optimize laser beam sources and laser processes. In close
cooperation with its clients, it uses laser technology to solve tasks
for production, measurement technology, environment, energy,
medical technology and biotechnology.
Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the
Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University
The Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) is one of the biggest institutes
engaged in this field of research. In organisational terms,
IKV is divided up into the four specialist departments of Injection
Moulding, Extrusion and Rubber Technology, Part Design and
Materials Technology, and Composites and Polyurethane Technology.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
