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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
