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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
