AKL'10 presents a broad program covering all aspects of laser technology

08.12.2009
At the 8th International Laser Technology Congress AKL'10, to be held from May 5 to 7, 2010 in Aachen, around sixty high-caliber experts from research and industry will present information about current trends, new beam sources, practical applications and fundamentals from the laser technology sector. The complete program is now available online at www.lasercongress.org.

Thanks to its balanced and varied program, AKL will provide helpful information to laser users and manufacturers as well as business managers and marketing directors from a wide range of sectors. What's more, it will offer an ideal forum for an intensive exchange of expert knowledge.

On May 6, 2010 Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, Minister of Innovation, Science, Research and Technology, and Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Bullinger, President of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, will open the Technology Conference held in conjunction with AKL'10. Prof. Dr. Reinhart Poprawe, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, will be outlining the future of laser technology in the 'Gerd Herziger Session'. Senior managers from prominent laser manufacturers, including Dr. Peter Leibinger, TRUMPF, and Dr. Ulrich Hefter, ROFIN-SINAR, will be taking a look at the next generation of high-performance lasers.

From solar energy and medical engineering to aircraft construction - laser light is universally deployable!

In specialist sessions experienced speakers will focus on topics such as the high-power ultra-short-pulse laser and ultra-precision machining. For example, Dr. Achim Nebel from LUMERA LASER GmbH will explain the advantages of high-power picosecond laser beam sources for micro material processing. Dr. Keming Du from EdgeWave GmbH will illustrate various areas of application for the INNOSLAB laser and the customized properties it offers.

On the system engineering side, the winner of the Innovation Award 2008, Dipl.-Ing. Bertold Hopf from Daimler AG, will inform conference participants about new developments and quality assurance in remote laser welding. Dr. Godehard Schmitz will present concrete insights into the use of ultra-precision machining in industrial practice as reflected at Bosch company. Focusing on the innovation cluster project Integrative Production Technology for Energy-Efficient Turbomachinery (TurPro), which has a budget of 10 million euros, Dr. Andres Gasser from the Fraunhofer ILT will present latest research results in the field of turbine engineering. With reference to current projects, speakers will report on industrial products which have been processed for the first time using new laser techniques. For instance, Dr. Kurt Graichen from Berlin Heart GmbH will present titanium components of a heart support system which were polished by laser beam.

Solar technology holds a particularly important position as a driving force behind laser technology. The Technology Conference is therefore devoting three papers to this sector. Dipl.-Ing. Kai-Uwe Vayhinger from Manz Automation AG, for example, will highlight how laser techniques can be used for the high-throughput manufacture of solar cells. Two blocks of papers on the subject of laser measurement technology will round off the conference program. They will address the use of measurement techniques and systems in clinical diagnosis and bioanalysis.

From an international perspective: potential and prospects for the laser markets

The Technology Business Day TBT'10 will take place on May 5, 2010, the day before the Technology Conference. It is geared to the needs of business managers and marketing directors seeking specific information on the status of and prospects for the laser markets. Sector experts and market specialists will provide valuable information on the European, American and Asian sales markets for laser technology. They will include prominent figures such as Thomas Merk, ROFIN-SINAR Laser GmbH, David A. Belforte, Belforte Associates, Sturbridge, USA, Dr. Kunihiko Washio, Paradigm Laser Research Ltd., Tokyo, and Ph. D. Bo Gu, IPG Fiber Laser Technology Co. Ltd., Bejing.

Participants who have little or no experience of laser systems can acquire fundamental knowledge about how lasers function and their applications at the Laser Technology ABCs seminars, which also take place on May 5, 2010.

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:...

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...
