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.
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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
