AKL'10: Brilliant Prospects for the 8th International Laser Technology Congress in Aachen

15.09.2009
Laser manufacturers and users from various branches are meeting for the eighth time in the imperial city at the biannual International Laser Technology Congress AKL from May 5 to 7, 2010. The AKL'10 is organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT.

With over 500 participants, around 60 speakers and over 30 exhibitors, the AKL has established itself as the leading forum for applied laser technology in Germany. The international public can expect a wide range of lectures in complete German and English simultaneous translations.

From newcomers via system providers all the way to laser users, the AKL'10 will offer something relevant for every target group. Supporting organizations include the European Commission, the Association of German Engineers (VDI), the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V., the European Laser Institute ELI as well as the following industrial associations: the European Federation of Precision Mechanical and Optical Industries (EUROM), the German Industrial Association for Optical, Medical and Mechatronical Technologies Inc. (SPECTARIS), the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA) and the German Association of Machine and Plant Construction (VDMA).

Information, Inspiration and Networking
The technological symposium of the AKL'10 (May 6 to 7, 2010) will inform users and manufacturers about the latest developments and practical experience with laser production processes such as laser welding, cutting, drilling and removal. The conference will also emphasize new laser sources, like ultra-short pulse lasers or the next generation of diode, fiber and solid-state lasers. Within the framework of the sponsor's exhibition, around 30 companies will present practical laser-based solutions to the professional public for a whole range of branches from the manufacturing industry. On the Technology Business Day (May 5, 2010), managing directors, marketing officers as well as sales directors will receive an overview of the current status as well as the perspectives of the laser market world-wide. At the seminar "Laser Technology ABC's" (May 5, 2010), experts from laser praxis will offer a structured and praxis-oriented overview to companies with little experience in this area. The EU Innovation Forum "Laser Processing in Aeronautics and Power Generation" (May 5, 2010) is directed at experts from industry and science who work with laser material processing for turbine construction. Within the scope of the event Laser Technology Live (May 7, 2010), the Fraunhofer ILT and around 60 companies of the Application Center of the Fraunhofer ILT will present the latest results from application-oriented research and development.

The climax of the congress will be the presentation of the Innovation Award Laser Technology, endowed with €10,000 on May 5, 2010. It will be awarded by the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V. and the European Laser Institute ELI. The application documents can be downloaded from www.innovation-award-laser.org. In addition, the AKL'10 will offer laser users and manufacturers the opportunity to network and exchange experience during the entire event.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
