On April 26 and 27, 2017, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen will hold the 4th UKP-Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology. The event is an opportunity for scientists, laser manufacturers and users to come together and learn more about the latest trends from the ultrafast laser sector. More than 20 international speakers will report on the most recent developments in ultrafast laser beam sources and optical systems for ultrafast laser technology.
Parallel to developments in ultrashort pulse laser technology (USP), the past few years have also seen an increasing variety of ultrafast laser beam sources arrive onto the market. By now, the market offers users an increasing choice of wavelengths, including some in the unconventional range above one micrometer.
What’s more, the new USP lasers enable increasingly shorter pulses with low average outputs at ten-watt increments, even up to 100 fs. But which laser type is best for various custom uses with regard to efficiency and operating results? Then there’s the issue of finding the right system technology: How can USP lasers be integrated into existing production chains and what criteria need to be met?
Experts will be discussing answers to these questions at the 4th UKP Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology. As well as covering the basics of ultrafast laser technology and providing an overview of current developments in laser sources, key themes of the workshop will include new system technologies, application fields for new wavelengths above one micrometer and the potential for optimizing processes through beam shaping and beam splitting.
Participants will learn, for instance, how fiber-reinforced plastics can be processed precisely and efficiently using ultrafast lasers and how USP lasers are opening up new applications in medical technology.
Some 200 participants are expected, and the increased number of international visitors reflects the international importance of the topic. The conference language is English with simultaneous interpretation in German. Registration is now open at www.ultrafast-laser.com.

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
