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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
