On October 17, 2017 the LaserForum visits the city of Buchs in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen with the topic "Ultrashort pulse lasers: new technologies, materials processing & medical applications". Host is the NTB Interstate University of Technology Buchs. The LaserForum take place on international ground for the first time in 2017. The event has been organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in collaboration with partners from industry and research for ten years now.
Ultrashort pulse lasers generate light pulses in the megawatt range and a with pulse duration in the range of pico and femtoseconds. They are the ideal industrial tool for micromachining – i.e. cutting, drilling, ablation, or structuring – of various materials such as metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers and even biomaterials.
At the LaserForum 2017 speakers from Switzerland, Austria, France and Germany present the latest scientific and technical results in the field of ultrashort pulse laser technology and examples of applications.
The program features three sessions, "New Technologies for Ultrashort Pulse Lasers and Systems", "Materials Processing with Ultrashort Pulse Lasers" and "Medical Applications of Ultrashort Pulse Lasers". Following the lectures and discussions, the participants are invited to join a guided tour of the NTB Interstate University of Applied Sciences.
Partners of this year's LaserForum, in addition to the NTB, are the traditional co-organizers of the event, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V., and the Chair of Applied Laser Technology at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
The LaserForum 2017 is also supported by the Swiss networks Swissphotonics and Swissmem (Focus Group Photonics), and the business development company St. GallenBodenseeArea.
The LaserForum events series presents selected issues and trends surrounding the application of laser technology in different fields once a year. The forum offers a platform for discussion among industry experts. The event is aimed at developers, manufacturers and users of laser technology.
The LaserForum 2017 is held in German.

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....
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...
