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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
