“Laser Technology Live” at the AKL’18 International Laser Technology Congress in Aachen

23.02.2018

From May 2 to 4, the laser community convenes for the 12th time at AKL’18 in Aachen. Laser manufacturers, laser users and laser novices alike will have the chance to see 77 presentations on innovative applications from industry as well as the latest scientific research. At the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, over 600 participants from Germany and abroad will also be able to experience “Laser Technology Live” in Europe’s largest laser park. Register now for AKL’18 at www.lasercongress.org and take advantage of the early booking discount until March 9, 2018!

At the “Laser Technology Live” event at the Fraunhofer ILT’s user center on May 3, 2018, visitors to AKL’18 will be able to discuss new technological developments in depth with the Aachen-based researchers. The laser experts will be presenting a new development targeting quality assurance in Additive Manufacturing.

Using the example of Extreme High-Speed Laser Material Deposition EHLA, visitors will be able to see for the first time how the measurement of powder feed nozzles can be automated and standardized with a system-integrated module. This means the user knows exactly how much powder is being supplied, allowing the patented measurement technique to make a significant contribution to ensuring process quality and stability.

In the field of ultrafast lasers with high average power, it is all about power scaling: How can the increased average power be efficiently translated into machining processes with the aim to process metal, ceramics, and glass even faster while maintaining accuracy? Here, experts will be showcasing the two fundamental concepts: For the one thing the parallelization, using multi-beam technology and for another thing the machining with high repetition rates using fast deflection systems, such as a polygon scanner. Researchers will be available to answer any questions on these and other topics at over 80 live presentations.

Launch of the I³-Research Center Digital Photonic Production

On the evening of May 3, 2018, Fraunhofer ILT invites the participants of AKL’18 to the inauguration of the I³-Research Center DPP. In adopting the I³ format – integrated interdisciplinary institutes – RWTH Aachen University is pioneering a new and trend-setting form of interdisciplinary university collaboration. At the I³-RCDPP, 16 institutes from across 6 faculties will conduct research together on the use of the photon’s unique physical properties in the production of the future.

The German federal and state governments are funding a new research facility for this interdisciplinary research program, and the new building will be completed in the summer of 2018. The facility will be home to some 80 research scientists working on shaping the future of digital photonic production over 4300 square meters of laboratories and floor space. It joins the privately funded Industry Building DPP, opened in 2016, as a further addition to the Digital Photonic Production research campus.

Conference exhibition

The specialist technology side of the conference will be accompanied by a sponsors‘ exhibition featuring more than 50 renowned laser technology companies. Visitors will have the opportunity to enter into one-on-one conversations with the exhibitors, allowing them to learn more about innovative products and processes in laser technology, make new contacts or strengthen existing ones. All conference presentations will be given either in English or in German, with simultaneous translation into the other language.

Contributing organizations

The AKL’18 International Laser Technology Congress is organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT. It is supported by input from the European Commission, the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e. V., the European Laser Institute ELI, OptecNet and the SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI industry associations.

Im Focus: Distorted Atoms

In two experiments performed at the free-electron laser FLASH in Hamburg a cooperation led by physicists from the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear physics (MPIK) demonstrated strongly-driven nonlinear interaction of ultrashort extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) laser pulses with atoms and ions. The powerful excitation of an electron pair in helium was found to compete with the ultrafast decay, which temporarily may even lead to population inversion. Resonant transitions in doubly charged neon ions were shifted in energy, and observed by XUV-XUV pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy.

An international team led by physicists from the MPIK reports on new results for efficient two-electron excitations in helium driven by strong and ultrashort...

Im Focus: A Memory Effect at Single-Atom Level

An international research group has observed new quantum properties on an artificial giant atom and has now published its results in the high-ranking journal Nature Physics. The quantum system under investigation apparently has a memory - a new finding that could be used to build a quantum computer.

The research group, consisting of German, Swedish and Indian scientists, has investigated an artificial quantum system and found new properties.
