On April 22 and 23, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be holding the Third UKP Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology in Aachen, Germany.
Scientists, laser manufacturers and users from a wide variety of branches from Germany and abroad will meet here to catch up on the latest trends from ultrafast laser technology.
Over 20 speakers from eight different countries will be showing newest results on ultrafast lasers and optical systems for manufacturing. Special emphasis will be given on the economic integration of ultrafast lasers into production.
The development of ultrafast lasers – having pulse durations in the area of a few hundred femtoseconds to only few picoseconds, as well as power ranging into the kilowatts – has given rise to an ever-increasing variety of applications.
These lasers are currently at the threshold of mass production and have similar growth rates as, for example, CO2, diode or fiber lasers of the past. Stable ultrafast laser systems with power levels up to 100 W can already be purchased on the market. Quite often, however, these outputs cannot be used with existing scanner systems without wasting resources.
For this reason, the workshop will focus on processes and systems which enable the use of full laser power. For example, quick scanning or appropriate beam forming could be used to increase productivity.
In addition to fundamental principles of ultrafast laser technology, the workshop is offering an overview of the current beam source developments and new system technologies. In the sector of process technology, speakers will discuss the latest applications and process approaches, which are expanding today’s frontiers regarding range of materials, processing speed and quality.
Around 160 participants are expected to attend, whereby the increased share of visitors from abroad reflects how relevant this topic has become internationally. Due to an increasing demand among international participants, the conference will be held in English with simultaneous translation into German. One can register as of now at www.ultrafast-laser.com.

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...
