IVAM’s LaserForum visits the Swiss canton of St. Gallen with the topic ultrashort pulse lasers

06.09.2017

On October 17, 2017 the LaserForum visits the city of Buchs in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen with the topic "Ultrashort pulse lasers: new technologies, materials processing & medical applications". Host is the NTB Interstate University of Technology Buchs. The LaserForum take place on international ground for the first time in 2017. The event has been organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in collaboration with partners from industry and research for ten years now.

Ultrashort pulse lasers generate light pulses in the megawatt range and a with pulse duration in the range of pico and femtoseconds. They are the ideal industrial tool for micromachining – i.e. cutting, drilling, ablation, or structuring – of various materials such as metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers and even biomaterials.


The tenth IVAM LaserForum takes place in Buchs in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen on October 17, 2017.

IVAM

At the LaserForum 2017 speakers from Switzerland, Austria, France and Germany present the latest scientific and technical results in the field of ultrashort pulse laser technology and examples of applications.

The program features three sessions, "New Technologies for Ultrashort Pulse Lasers and Systems", "Materials Processing with Ultrashort Pulse Lasers" and "Medical Applications of Ultrashort Pulse Lasers". Following the lectures and discussions, the participants are invited to join a guided tour of the NTB Interstate University of Applied Sciences.

Partners of this year's LaserForum, in addition to the NTB, are the traditional co-organizers of the event, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V., and the Chair of Applied Laser Technology at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

The LaserForum 2017 is also supported by the Swiss networks Swissphotonics and Swissmem (Focus Group Photonics), and the business development company St. GallenBodenseeArea.

The LaserForum events series presents selected issues and trends surrounding the application of laser technology in different fields once a year. The forum offers a platform for discussion among industry experts. The event is aimed at developers, manufacturers and users of laser technology.

The LaserForum 2017 is held in German.

Im Focus: How receptors for medicines work inside cells

G protein-coupled receptors are the key target of a large number of drugs. Würzburg scientists have now been able to show more precisely how these receptors act in the cell interior.

The human genome encodes hundreds of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). These form the largest group of receptors through which hormones and...

Im Focus: Like a Revolving Door: How Shuttling Proteins Operate Nuclear Pores

Nuclear pore complexes are tiny channels where the exchange of substances between the cell nucleus and the cytoplasm takes place. Scientists at the University of Basel report on startling new research that might overturn established models of nuclear transport regulation. Their study published in the Journal of Cell Biology reveals how shuttling proteins known as importins control the function of nuclear pores – as opposed to the view that nuclear pores control the shuttling of importins.

Genetic information is protected in the cell nucleus by a membrane that contains numerous nuclear pores. These pores facilitate the traffic of proteins known...

Im Focus: Bit data goes anti-skyrmions

Today’s world, rapidly changing because of “big data”, is encapsulated in trillions of tiny magnetic objects – magnetic bits – each of which stores one bit of data in magnetic disk drives. A group of scientists from the Max Planck Institutes in Halle and Dresden have discovered a new kind of magnetic nano-object in a novel material that could serve as a magnetic bit with cloaking properties to make a magnetic disk drive with no moving parts – a Racetrack Memory – a reality in the near future.

Most digital data is stored in the cloud as magnetic bits within massive numbers of magnetic disk drives. Over the past several decades these magnetic bits...

Im Focus: Life-long implants – vision and state of the art

Fraunhofer Institutes FEP and IWU have merged their expertise in order to advance a new generation of medical implants.

Implants are routinely employed in hospitals and dental practices daily. They are technologically mature and offer support for people in many different ways....
