The ingenuity of pioneering breakthroughs can be witnessed in Aachen before the year is out. At its “AI for Laser Technology Conference” on November 6 and 7, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be tackling the question of how lasers can be used more efficiently with the help of artificial intelligence. Experts from companies including Daimler, Intel and Microsoft have already signed up for the event. The conference topics will range from machine learning in industrial settings to the use of augmented reality and analysis of neural networks.
The idea of holding a conference on the use of AI in laser systems originated at the Process Control group at Fraunhofer ILT, which has been researching the...29.08.2019 | Read more
Spectators will experience the fascinating power of thought-controlled systems on 17 September, as teams from all over the world go head to head in the CYBATHLON BCI Series 2019 at TU Graz. ‘Pilots’ who are paralysed from the neck down control avatars using brain-computer interfaces in a specially developed computer game. Tickets for race day are now available.
‘Pilots’ with physical impairments, who control computer avatars with their thoughts, will demonstrate how far brain-computer interface (BCI) research has come...16.08.2019 | Read more
"Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020" covers the entire spectrum of topics, from basic materials to design, from production to application, and thus provides the basis for an in-depth understanding of application-specific material and component behavior. The only limitation is the focus on material combinations that perform structural tasks in some way.
More than the sum of their parts!
Very often, innovative materials act as trailblazers for the introduction of new technologies and products. Hybrid materials and structures made or joined from...14.08.2019 | Read more
Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.
Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...
An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.
Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.
Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...
An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
