What tomorrow’s monitoring of coating processes might look like will be presented by the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) at the Optatec 2018 in Frankfurt/Main from May 15th to 17th, 2018, in hall 3 at booth A 58. This year’s three focuses of the LZH are: in-situ particle detection, spectrally high-resolution online monitoring and flexible measurement technology.
Especially for longer coating processes it is important to check the optics for defect growth and inclusions during the process.
The LZH develops systems for in-situ particle detection, which can be used to control complex coatings.
These make it possible to identify sources of contamination in the process and to minimize or even eliminate them.
Spectrally high-resolution online monitoring and flexible measurement technology
Complex multi-layer systems with the highest spectral requirements call for a high-resolution layer thickness monitoring in order to be able to meet the specifications.
The LZH is working on online monitoring systems that also meet future resolution requirements. Likewise, the LZH is researching a flexible measurement technology for quality control even for small optics and fibers.
At the trade fair, the LZH will continue to offer its expertise and advice in the area of coating and process development.
These include optics for space applications, astronomy, laser applications and lighting technology.

If you've ever tried to put several really strong, small cube magnets right next to each other on a magnetic board, you'll know that you just can't do it. What happens is that the magnets always arrange themselves in a column sticking out vertically from the magnetic board. Moreover, it's almost impossible to join several rows of these magnets together to form a flat surface. That's because magnets are dipolar. Equal poles repel each other, with the north pole of one magnet always attaching itself to the south pole of another and vice versa. This explains why they form a column with all the magnets aligned the same way.
Now, scientists at ETH Zurich have managed to create magnetic building blocks in the shape of cubes that - for the first time ever - can be joined together to...

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...
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.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have reported a new mechanism to speed up the charging of lithium-ion...
