In response to significant demand, AKL’12 will also include a focus seminar on the topic of ultrashort pulse (USP) laser technology for the very first time. USP lasers with pulse length in the picosecond and femtosecond ranges are widely regarded as the premier precision tool of the future. Experts will be introducing the foundations of this technology and showing how USP lasers can be used for applications such as structuring solar cells, manufacturing medical technology products and processing fiber-composite components in lightweight construction environments.
Echoing the successful format of previous conferences, the main program will once again be covering the very latest laser manufacturing systems for micro and macro materials processing as well as innovative developments of laser beam sources. Participants will learn about a wide range of laser applications such as processing high-strength car body parts and producing high-quality wear protection coatings. Furthermore, they can find out what perspectives new laser beam sources can offer manufacturing.
For those participants who are more interested in the commercial and sales side of laser technology, the Technology Business Day (TBT) will provide relevant, up-to-the-minute information on the current status and future perspectives of the European, Asian and American laser markets. In addition, experts from various sectors of manufacturing industry will be highlighting recent material trends and discussing the technological challenges these present to laser material processing.Live demonstration of laser technology

In meningococci, the RNA-binding protein ProQ plays a major role. Together with RNA molecules, it regulates processes that are important for pathogenic properties of the bacteria.
Meningococci are bacteria that can cause life-threatening meningitis and sepsis. These pathogens use a small protein with a large impact: The RNA-binding...
An analysis of more than 200,000 spiral galaxies has revealed unexpected links between spin directions of galaxies, and the structure formed by these links...
Two prominent X-ray emission lines of highly charged iron have puzzled astrophysicists for decades: their measured and calculated brightness ratios always disagree. This hinders good determinations of plasma temperatures and densities. New, careful high-precision measurements, together with top-level calculations now exclude all hitherto proposed explanations for this discrepancy, and thus deepen the problem.
Hot astrophysical plasmas fill the intergalactic space, and brightly shine in stellar coronae, active galactic nuclei, and supernova remnants. They contain...
In living cells, enzymes drive biochemical metabolic processes enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very ability which allows them to be used as catalysts in biotechnology, for example to create chemical products such as pharmaceutics. Researchers now identified an enzyme that, when illuminated with blue light, becomes catalytically active and initiates a reaction that was previously unknown in enzymatics. The study was published in "Nature Communications".
Enzymes: they are the central drivers for biochemical metabolic processes in every living cell, enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very...
Early detection of tumors is extremely important in treating cancer. A new technique developed by researchers at the University of California, Davis offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue. The work is published May 25 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
