At this year’s LASER – World of PHOTONICS from June 22nd to 25th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will provide an insight into the newest research results and services from its three focus areas: Optical components and systems, Optical production technologies and Biomedical photonics in hall A3 stand 483/1.
With a new stand design and together with the spin-offs Cutting Edge Coating GmbH, Micreon GmbH and neoLASE GmbH, the LZH invites the visitors to get to know more about current re-search topics.
Optical components and systems
Using a model of an ion beam sputtering unit with a functioning optical wide band monitoring system, the LZH scientists will ex-plain high-precision control mechanisms for optical thin-film technology. Furthermore the topics optical qualifications and coating services from the LZH will play a key role.
In the area of optical systems, the LZH is presenting innovative solutions in the fields of fiber-optical components, ultrashort pulse lasers and lasers for use in outer space. A prototype of a Mars Organic Molecule Analyzers (MOMA) laser will be on dis-play, which will be part of the ExoMars Mission searching for life on the red planet. Furthermore, the LZH is presenting fiber splic-ers, which link several fiber lasers together, for example to opti-mize the processing of composites and polymers.
Optical production technologies
The LZH will show the scope of laser material processing in the area of Optical production technologies. Whether for printed cir-cuit boards on glass, ultra-thin yet robust sensors, or automated processes for cutting, welding or repairing carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) – the LZH is a competent partner.
In the area of lightweight construction, the LZH is not only doing research on making composites suitable for series production for automobile and airplane construction, the scientists are also working on joining nonsimilar materials or special materials. Concerning laser additive manufacturing, the LZH is showing the current state of the art in processing metals.
With this technology the scientists work on intelligent implants made of the shape memory alloy nickel-titanium, bioresorbable implants, or load adjustable components made of magnesium. The conservation of resources is the goal when established processes are being refined: The LZH will be presenting a laser-supported deposition welding process, which uses considerably less material and energy than conventional processes.
For the first time, the LZH will be showing research work from the area of Biomedical photonics at the LASER. Scanning laser optical tomography developed at the LZH makes volumetric visualization of transparent and nontransparent biological and technical samples possible.
With this method, samples from several 100 µm3 up to 64 cm3 can be visualized: from stem cell clusters in the sub-millimeter range up to complete mouse lungs in the centimeter range. One application area for this method is, among other things, to visualize the emergence and development of lung diseases and their progress.
The LZH would be glad to meet you in hall A3, stand 483/1.
