At the last AKL, over 600 participants took advantage of this platform for applied laser technology, located centrally in Europe, to catch up on the latest developments in this sector and to collect ideas for future activities.
Among the top topics at the AKL’14 count additive laser processes as well as the development and application of ultra-short pulse lasers. The international audience can listen to the roughly 80 speakers from science and industry either in German or English.
The technology conference forms the core of the biannual congress, which will take place from May 8 to 9, 2014. This time, the connection of laser manufacturing processes with the digital world will play a central role: under the motto “Digital Photonic Production,” experts will be exhibiting new technological and economic perspectives for processes such as laser welding, cutting, drilling, ablating and generating. In addition to these laser-based processes, which encompass macro as well as micro processing in various branches of the manufacturing industry, a third highlight will lie on the youngest developments of laser beam sources of the next generation. Be it tunable solid-state lasers, diode, fiber or ultra-short pulse lasers, AKL’14 will be presenting current innovations from the industry and applied science.
Laser Knowledge for Users, Beginners and Decision Makers
The technology conference will be accompanied by a sponsors‘ exhibition, at which over 40 renowned laser, component and system manufacturers will be ready to answer the professional audience’s questions regarding laser-based solutions. Due to great demand, a Laser Technology ABC seminar for “laser novices“ will again be offered. On May 7, 2014, experts will be offering companies with little experience in laser technology a structured, praxis-oriented overview of the advantages lasers can offer them.
On the Technology Business Day’14 on May 7, 2014, managing directors, marketing managers as well as sales directors will be able to receive an overview of the laser markets worldwide and sector-specific insight for the use of laser technology in the manufacturing industry.
The schedule of the AKL’14 will be published in fall 2013 at www.lasercongress.org.
The International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 is organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT. The European Commission, the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V., the European Laser Institute ELI as well as the industry associations SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI all assist the forum as supporting organizations.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
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...
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...
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...
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....
