Light for Innovation: LZH at the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2015

03.06.2015

At this year’s LASER – World of PHOTONICS from June 22nd to 25th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will provide an insight into the newest research results and services from its three focus areas: Optical components and systems, Optical production technologies and Biomedical photonics in hall A3 stand 483/1.

With a new stand design and together with the spin-offs Cutting Edge Coating GmbH, Micreon GmbH and neoLASE GmbH, the LZH invites the visitors to get to know more about current re-search topics.


As an independent, non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) stands for innovative research, development and consulting.

Optical components and systems

Using a model of an ion beam sputtering unit with a functioning optical wide band monitoring system, the LZH scientists will ex-plain high-precision control mechanisms for optical thin-film technology. Furthermore the topics optical qualifications and coating services from the LZH will play a key role.


In the area of optical systems, the LZH is presenting innovative solutions in the fields of fiber-optical components, ultrashort pulse lasers and lasers for use in outer space. A prototype of a Mars Organic Molecule Analyzers (MOMA) laser will be on dis-play, which will be part of the ExoMars Mission searching for life on the red planet. Furthermore, the LZH is presenting fiber splic-ers, which link several fiber lasers together, for example to opti-mize the processing of composites and polymers.

Optical production technologies

The LZH will show the scope of laser material processing in the area of Optical production technologies. Whether for printed cir-cuit boards on glass, ultra-thin yet robust sensors, or automated processes for cutting, welding or repairing carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) – the LZH is a competent partner.

In the area of lightweight construction, the LZH is not only doing research on making composites suitable for series production for automobile and airplane construction, the scientists are also working on joining nonsimilar materials or special materials. Concerning laser additive manufacturing, the LZH is showing the current state of the art in processing metals.

With this technology the scientists work on intelligent implants made of the shape memory alloy nickel-titanium, bioresorbable implants, or load adjustable components made of magnesium. The conservation of resources is the goal when established processes are being refined: The LZH will be presenting a laser-supported deposition welding process, which uses considerably less material and energy than conventional processes.

Biomedical Photonics

For the first time, the LZH will be showing research work from the area of Biomedical photonics at the LASER. Scanning laser optical tomography developed at the LZH makes volumetric visualization of transparent and nontransparent biological and technical samples possible.

With this method, samples from several 100 µm3 up to 64 cm3 can be visualized: from stem cell clusters in the sub-millimeter range up to complete mouse lungs in the centimeter range. One application area for this method is, among other things, to visualize the emergence and development of lung diseases and their progress.
The LZH would be glad to meet you in hall A3, stand 483/1.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

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.
