UKP Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology 2015: Save the Date!

16.09.2014

On April 22 and 23, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be holding the Third UKP Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology in Aachen, Germany.

Scientists, laser manufacturers and users from a wide variety of branches from Germany and abroad will meet here to catch up on the latest trends from ultrafast laser technology.

Over 20 speakers from eight different countries will be showing newest results on ultrafast lasers and optical systems for manufacturing. Special emphasis will be given on the economic integration of ultrafast lasers into production.

The development of ultrafast lasers – having pulse durations in the area of a few hundred femtoseconds to only few picoseconds, as well as power ranging into the kilowatts – has given rise to an ever-increasing variety of applications.

These lasers are currently at the threshold of mass production and have similar growth rates as, for example, CO2, diode or fiber lasers of the past. Stable ultrafast laser systems with power levels up to 100 W can already be purchased on the market. Quite often, however, these outputs cannot be used with existing scanner systems without wasting resources.

For this reason, the workshop will focus on processes and systems which enable the use of full laser power. For example, quick scanning or appropriate beam forming could be used to increase productivity.

In addition to fundamental principles of ultrafast laser technology, the workshop is offering an overview of the current beam source developments and new system technologies. In the sector of process technology, speakers will discuss the latest applications and process approaches, which are expanding today’s frontiers regarding range of materials, processing speed and quality.

Around 160 participants are expected to attend, whereby the increased share of visitors from abroad reflects how relevant this topic has become internationally. Due to an increasing demand among international participants, the conference will be held in English with simultaneous translation into German. One can register as of now at www.ultrafast-laser.com.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
