Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014

12.11.2013
International conference, April 8-9, 2014

“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will be hosted on April 8-9, 2014 by Fraunhofer IPT in cooperation with Fraunhofer ILT and the Institute of Plastics Processing IKV.

The international conference focuses on optical polymer components. Addressees of the event are participants from industry and research who are interested in manufacturing methods and the application potential of optical polymer products. Central to the conference are the following topics:

• Illumination optics
• Light guides
• Imaging optics
• Special optics
“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will deliver a clearly focused and structured insight into the technological limits of polymer optics. The application-orientated, interdisciplinary presentations will aim to explain developments along the manufacturing process chain of optical polymer components. Acclaimed experts from industry and research will discuss current technologies and will present their ideas for future polymer optics developments.

Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

The aim of the Fraunhofer IPT is to develop new and optimize existing
solutions through practice-oriented research and development.
The Fraunhofer IPT transfers the results of this R&D directly
into practice in client companies, which come from a wide range
of industries – the automotive industries and its suppliers, especially
tool and die making, as well as fine-mechanics and optical
industries, aerospace industries and machine tool manufacturers.
Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT
The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, founded in
1985, is one of the most important contracting research and development
institutes of its sector worldwide. Its experts develop
and optimize laser beam sources and laser processes. In close
cooperation with its clients, it uses laser technology to solve tasks
for production, measurement technology, environment, energy,
medical technology and biotechnology.
Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the
Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University
The Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) is one of the biggest institutes
engaged in this field of research. In organisational terms,
IKV is divided up into the four specialist departments of Injection
Moulding, Extrusion and Rubber Technology, Part Design and
Materials Technology, and Composites and Polyurethane Technology.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
