Nowadays, many of our achievements are based on laser technology and it forming our life without peeing present in public. Thanks to this universal tool as well as the countless, enthusiastic and talented scientist and engineers, young and old, many new applications will emerge....

Only 30 per cent of the global research and development workforce are women. Although women now enter professional institutions in numbers nearly equal to men, they are still substantially less likely to reach the highest echelons of their professions. Gender difference in science is...

The automotive, chemical as well as pharmaceutical industry and not to neglect the medical institutions are demanding compact, easy to use and hermetically sealed plastic parts in high volumes. Due to the availability of high-power diode-based fiber coupled laser sources plastic welding is rapidly...

Demand for products made from ultra-high strength steels is increasing. While traditional ‘cold’ sheet metal forming techniques, such as roll forming and stamping, are ideally suited to mild steels, using them for ultra-high strength steels often results in cracking, spring-back or distortion.1 These problems can be...
