International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14: Impulses for the Production Technology of Tomorrow

10.12.2013
Laser users and manufacturers from diverse economic branches will be meeting from May 7 to 9, 2014 at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 in Aachen, Germany. Users, manufacturers and developers have used this international platform to intensively exchange ideas on the current status and perspectives of laser technology. The program can now be seen online at www.lasercongress.org.

For the tenth time, around 60 laser experts from research and industry will be informing visitors about the newest processes and beam sources as well as the latest developments and trends in laser technology. Technology suppliers and customers can profit from the exchange of experience.

The organizer, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT anticipates, once again, over 600 participants. Interested parties can now register for the AKL’14 at www.lasercongress.org and receive an early bird discount until March 21, 2014.

Individualized Series Production thanks to »Digital Photonic Production«

Linking the virtual world with that of laser production is opening up new horizons for production technology, which thus enables individualized or particularly complex components to be manufactured under inexpensive conditions. Presentations by companies from the energy, automobile and aviation sectors will show how “Digital Photonic Production” can pave the way for new business models. In addition to the generative processes, ablating and structuring processes will be elucidated by way of examples.

Ultrashort Pulse Laser – Putting Full Power out on the “Street”

USP lasers are increasingly making their way into the industrial environment. In three different sessions at the symposium on May 8 and 9, 2014, under the label “Ultrashort Pulse Laser Essentials,” experts will be informing participants on the foundations of and latest developments in beam sources for high power USP lasers. They will show various applications for micro and macro processing using examples from the manufacturing industry. Moreover, they will present the state-of-the-art of this technology as well as perspectives for processing fiber-reinforced plastics.

Innovation Award Laser Technology 2014

On May 7, 2014, within the scope of the AKL’14, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V. and the European Laser Institute ELI will be awarding the “Innovation Award Laser Technology” for excellent innovations in the development and application of lasers in production technology. The award is endowed with 10,000 Euros. The European research prize is directed at applicants from the European industry as well as European universities or R&D centers. Applications can be submitted until January 17, 2014. For further information, please see www.innovation-award-laser.org.

Supporting Organizations

The International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 is organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT. The European Commission, the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V., the European Laser Institute ELI as well as the industry associations SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI all assist the forum as supporting organizations.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
