Laser Technology for Innovators at the International Congress for Laser Technology AKL’12 in Aachen

07.12.2011
Laser users and manufacturers from all sectors of industry will be meeting in Aachen on May 9-11, 2012 to share experience and gather new ideas at the International Congress for Laser Technology AKL’12. Many of the new developments presented here will become tomorrow’s standard production techniques.
The complete program is already online at www.lasercongress.org.
At the 9th AKL organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, some 70 laser experts drawn from industry and research will report on the latest trends and developments in laser technology and present new laser sources and processes. More than 500 participants are expected to attend.

The main focus of this industry forum lies on communicating research results and practical experience in laser material processing, on both the micro and macro scale. Laser-based additive manufacturing techniques are set to revolutionize the production environment. The customized mass production of metallic components is no longer a science-fiction dream. A spotlight will also be thrown on laser polishing. The parallel event »Laser Technology Live« on the premises of Fraunhofer ILT features some 70 presentations including a demonstration of the institute’s automated laser polishing plant. This event takes place on May 11.

Ultrashort pulse lasers – the tool of the future for high-precision applications

In response to great demand, a new Focus Seminar dedicated to Ultrashort Pulse Laser (UPL) Technology is being offered at this year’s congress. Experts in the field will talk about the latest developments in high-performance ultrashort pulse lasers in presentations covering both the technology basics and numerous application aspects.

Those wishing to attend AKL’12 can register immediately on www.lasercongress.org. An early registration discount is offered to everyone who registers before midnight on March 23, 2012.

Innovation Award Laser Technology 2012

The official presentation of the Innovation Award Laser Technology 2012, awarded jointly by the industry association Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V. and the European Laser Institute ELI, will take place during AKL’12, on May 9, 2012. This award honors outstanding innovations in the development of lasers and laser applications for use in a production environment. Individuals or project groups working for universities, R&D centers or companies established in Europe are eligible to apply for this European research award, which is endowed with 10,000 euros in prize money. The closing date for applications is January 20, 2012. For more information, please consult: www.innovation-award-laser.org.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
