How lasers are making us virtually immortal
Femtosecond laser pulses weld glass without any additional material. The process is economical and ready for industrial practice.
Cutting semiconductor material on a wafer scale requires optics that work with maximum precision - and that’s exactly what Ingeneric has developed.
Femtosecond lasers are storing data in quartz crystals. Once inside, the information can live on for eternity.
Dr. Ulf Quentin uses ultrashort pulsed lasers to produce surface structures on a nanometer scale. He recently received an award for his work from the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT).
Instead of cutting glass by ablation, just take a laser and generate a tension inside the pane so it fractures in a controlled fashion. And with the right optics this happens at a speed of one meter per second.
Smartphones, tablets and phablets have changed our lives. With the next generation of all-in-one mobile devices well on its way, it is lasers that are driving innovation for each and every component.
