Laser Technology at the glasstec 2012
The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be presenting laser technology for glass and photovoltaic material processing at the world’s most important fair for glass technology, the “glasstec” in Düsseldorf (October 23rd to 26th, 2012).
Visitors to the fair can see laser processed glass and solar energy exhibits, or talk to one of our experts on:
Laser welding of glass tubes
• Laser forming, cutting and welding of flat glass and glass tubes
• Glass-metal connections
• Welding with glass powder filler material
• Laser processing of photovoltaic materials, e.g. structuring or annealing thin layers, texturing Si solar cells and further possibilities (cutting, drilling, etc.)
One „LZH Highlight“ at the glasstec shows laser welding of glass tubes for solar collectors. The advantages of laser welding, in comparison to conventional flame welding, include controlled thermal heating and automation. Process reliability is increased, and the energy costs can be cut by up to 70% by using laser technology.
Also, processing of photovoltaic material will be shown at the stand. One example of the advantages of using laser radiation for processing silicon solar cells is structuring the surface of the to achieve higher efficiency rates
Be sure to visit our stand (Hall 11, Stand F 69) at the glasstec in Düsseldorf.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
