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: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
