4th UKP-Workshop 2017 – Save the Date!

15.09.2016

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.

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.

Im Focus: Safe glide at total engine failure with ELA-inside

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.
