Microstructuring of materials using brilliant laser light is one of the key topics now being investigated by the Laser Center (LFM) at the Münster University of Applied Sciences. The center’s founder and director, Professor Klaus Dickmann, specializes in structuring surfaces and lending them new functions.
The co-managing directors of LaserJob tell us how the ultra-short pulsed laser matches up to the hard reality of job-shop operations.
A simulation project at Fraunhofer ILT is advancing the use of picosecond laser ablation as a cutting technique.
High-tech materials such as glass, sapphire, ceramics and high-performance plastics are on the rise and light is almost the only way to work them.
How do you get a high-tech company off the ground? We asked someone who should know: Jörg Jetter, who took a strategic approach to launching his company 4JET Technologies and is always expanding into new markets.
