Light creates Progress - Call for Papers for the LANE 2010 Sixth International Conference currently under way

The Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH (blz) and the Chair of Photonic Technologies (LPT) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg will host the LANE 2010 Sixth International Conference and Exhibition on September 21-24, 2010 in Erlangen. The focus of the LANE 2010 conference will be on Photonic Technologies. The deadline for the submission of papers is February 15, 2010

The International Conference and Exhibition "Laser Assisted Net Shape Engineering" (LANE) will take place in Erlangen for the sixth time on September 21-24, 2010. In the field of Photonic Technologies, the conference wants to facilitate the implementation of the latest scientific research into application, offer an opportunity for the mutual exchange of experiences and provide an international platform where young scientists can present their research work. At the four-day conference, presentations and poster sessions will be accompanied by an industrial exhibition and a varied social program.

Look beyond one's own specialist field
The LANE conference will also look at adjacent technologies. One Special Session will therefore deal with developments in Additive Manufacturing. The presentation of the work of young and ambitious researchers at the Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) highlights the future-oriented character of the LANE conference.
International visibility of the scientific contributions
In 2010, Laser Material Processing will again be an important topic of the conference. Mobility, Life Sciences, Information Technology and Energy will be of special interest. Within these fields, the papers submitted should focus on Beam Sources, System Technology, Processes and Process Optimisation. Any scientists, researchers and users interested are asked to submit abstracts by February 15, 2010. After a successful reviewing process, the papers will be published for five years in Elsevier's renowned online journal "Physics Procedia" and thus made available free of charge to interested researchers all over the world.
Erlangen Innovation Award Optical Technologies
The Erlangen Innovation Award Optical Technologies of the Registered Association for the Development of Laser Technology at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, which is endowed with prize money of 3,000 Euros, will be awarded at the LANE 2010. The award wants to reward excellent achievements in the field of Laser Technology and Application, such as new products, inventions or patents. Applicants must submit a detailed project description and CV by May 31, 2010. The award winner will get the chance to present the innovative project or product to an international audience as a keynote speech.

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
