Light for Innovation: LZH at the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2015

03.06.2015

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.


As an independent, non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) stands for innovative research, development and consulting.

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.

Biomedical Photonics

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.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

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...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

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...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

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...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

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....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

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...
