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.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
