Workshop “Laser Processing of Glass Materials” on November 26th, 2013 at the LZH
At the workshop „Laser Processing of Glass Materials”, which will be held at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) in November, the main topics to be covered are relevant beam source developments, joining, cutting and functionalization, as well as machine technology. The workshop will be organized by the LZH together with the Bayerisches Laserzentrum gGmbH.
In many areas of manufacturing and processing industries, processing of glass materials using the laser plays an important role. The laser has established itself as a processing tool, and continuing developments of beam sources are opening new application fields for the laser in glass processing.
For example, there are interesting developments in the growing field of display glass, which could take on a new direction based on laser applications. Completely new applications are developing in the field of construction technology, for example in the area of façade design based on laser coating. Discussions are currently taking place concerning the ultrashort pulse laser as the future tool for damage-free glass processing. New possibilities are also arising for the use of lasers for manufacturing fiber optical components.
Researchers, users and manufacturers in the field of glass processing, decision makers and workers in the R&D departments, production and marketing, and all interested visionaries are invited to attend, and to use the chance to talk with experts, and to exploit the know-how of two research institutes in the field of laser processing of glass materials.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
