International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 from May 7 to 9, 2014 - save the date!

17.09.2013
For the tenth time, laser manufacturers and users from different sectors will be gathering at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 in Aachen.

At the last AKL, over 600 participants took advantage of this platform for applied laser technology, located centrally in Europe, to catch up on the latest developments in this sector and to collect ideas for future activities.

Among the top topics at the AKL’14 count additive laser processes as well as the development and application of ultra-short pulse lasers. The international audience can listen to the roughly 80 speakers from science and industry either in German or English.

The technology conference forms the core of the biannual congress, which will take place from May 8 to 9, 2014. This time, the connection of laser manufacturing processes with the digital world will play a central role: under the motto “Digital Photonic Production,” experts will be exhibiting new technological and economic perspectives for processes such as laser welding, cutting, drilling, ablating and generating. In addition to these laser-based processes, which encompass macro as well as micro processing in various branches of the manufacturing industry, a third highlight will lie on the youngest developments of laser beam sources of the next generation. Be it tunable solid-state lasers, diode, fiber or ultra-short pulse lasers, AKL’14 will be presenting current innovations from the industry and applied science.

Laser Knowledge for Users, Beginners and Decision Makers

The technology conference will be accompanied by a sponsors‘ exhibition, at which over 40 renowned laser, component and system manufacturers will be ready to answer the professional audience’s questions regarding laser-based solutions. Due to great demand, a Laser Technology ABC seminar for “laser novices“ will again be offered. On May 7, 2014, experts will be offering companies with little experience in laser technology a structured, praxis-oriented overview of the advantages lasers can offer them.

On the Technology Business Day’14 on May 7, 2014, managing directors, marketing managers as well as sales directors will be able to receive an overview of the laser markets worldwide and sector-specific insight for the use of laser technology in the manufacturing industry.

The schedule of the AKL’14 will be published in fall 2013 at www.lasercongress.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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
