What do you think about the Photonics industry? Carles Romani: Photonics industry, what a question? I think Photonics industry is very interesting full of people that know a lot about their specific technology, and I think, that makes it interesting and for somebody like me that...

Currently, additive manufacturing technologies (AM), and in particular Direct Energy Deposition technologies (DED) , which include Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) technology based on the GMAW process (Gas Metal Arc Welding), are attracting increasing interest from the industry and experiencing very significant growth. Despite reaching a...

Whereas LiDAR was first implemented close...

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...

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....

Laser lithotripsy, predominantly via advanced ureteroscopy, has become a major technique for the minimally invasive surgical ablation of ureteral and kidney stones. The...

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...

The use of real macro water channels allows to maintain a high optical efficiency when talking about actively cooled Diode Laser Stacks making them cost-efficient in terms of performance and maintenance. Our ENCAST Series consists of laser diodes mounted with our exclusive ClampingTM technology. The solder-free clamping of...

A brief introduction into Raman spectroscopy and related applications. An overview over the physics, the requirements on the laser source and the detector properties necessary to detect a proper spectrum. ...
