LZH at the LASER World of Photonics 2017: Light for Innovation

16.06.2017

At this year's LASER – World of PHOTONICS in Munich from June 26th to June 29th, 2017, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be presenting the latest research results and services in hall A3 at stand 506. Popular monuments from the skyline of Hannover will be illustrating the core competencies of the LZH.

The focus is on optical components and systems, optical produc-tion technologies as well as on industrial and biomedical optics. Among other things, the LZH will be presenting optics for special applications, compact lasers and the latest developments in the field of laser material processing and quality control. Seven monuments from Hannover will vividly illustrate the LZH’s spectrum of activities. From laser material processing of metals and plastics to additive manufacturing and up to optical coatings, Hannover demonstrates its innovation potential.

Optical components and systems

In the field of optical components, the LZH provides customer-specific solutions even for difficult and unusual problems. At the exhibition, among other things, the research institute will show telescope lenses for space applications and miniaturized complex filters. Be it the characterization of optics, coating services or optics coating for research and other purposes, the LZH is the right partner not only at the LASER 2017.

For the first time, this year, the LZH will be presenting a compact laser head for LIDAR1, LIBS2 and material processing that emits high pulse energies at large repetition rates. The passively Q-switched solid-state laser works with a wavelength of 1030 nm and 515 nm. Also for the first time, the LZH shows a fully glass-based cladding light stripper that extracts leakage radiation from optical fibers in a well-targeted way, and pump combiners that deliver pump radiation to fiber lasers monolithically.

Optical production technologies

From wire-based deposition welding with deposition rates of more than 10 kg/h to Selective Laser (Micro-)Melting, stereo-lithography and nozzle-based processes up to Two-Photon-Polymerization – the LZH will be presenting the state-of-the-art in additive manufacturing: from the macro- to the nanoscale.

Another topic in the field of optical production technologies is the use of lasers underwater. At the stand of the LZH, processes for cutting sheet metal and for analyzing material on the seabed will be shown. In the field of lightweight construction, the institute presents adapters made of steel-aluminum for the light-weight ship building of tomorrow. Further exhibits cover an automated glass welding process with filler material as well as a laser-encoded shaft for torque measurement.

Industrial and biomedical optics

In the field of industrial and biomedical optics, this year’s focus is on quality-control with light-based methods. At the exhibition, among other things, the LZH will be demonstrating how the Opti-cal Coherence Tomography can be used for inline quality control during laser transmission welding. The three-dimensional imaging of 3D-printed parts made of plastics using laser grid tomography is suitable for controlling manufacturing results, too.

1 LIDAR (eng.: Light detection and ranging) is an optical method for distance measurement, similar to the radar.
2 LIBS (eng.: Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) is a method to analyze the composition of a material.

Im Focus: Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Im Focus: First-ever visualizations of electrical gating effects on electronic structure

Scientists have visualised the electronic structure in a microelectronic device for the first time, opening up opportunities for finely-tuned high performance electronic devices.

Physicists from the University of Warwick and the University of Washington have developed a technique to measure the energy and momentum of electrons in...

Im Focus: Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...

Im Focus: Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics: Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.

Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...

Im Focus: Extremely hard yet metallically conductive: Bayreuth researchers develop novel material with high-tech prospects

An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".

The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
