Hall A3, Stand 206

The research centre will show how, in the future, unexploded bombs can be defused more safely with a 3D-printed laser processing head with standard optical components. In addition, an internal laser processing head, the LZH-IBK, will be presented. This head makes it possible to roughen internal cylindrical surfaces like those in an engine block. Lastly, a mobile, hand-held laser processing head will also be shown that is designed to help emergency teams in traffic accidents to easily and safely cut vehicles. In that way, a quick rescue of injured persons shall be ensured in the future.

For the search for life on Mars, the LZH has developed a laser for the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer (MOMA) instrument. This laser will be part of the ExoMars 2020 mission. The LZH will present the flight model of the MOMA laser.

In addition, the scientists will demonstrate high-power single-frequency fibre amplifier systems for the next generation of gravitational wave detection. Likewise, these systems shall be used in optical communication (optical radio relay) and in quantum technologies.

The LZH scientists will also be presenting new coating concepts for frequency conversion. These are more efficient, more compact and more stable than conversion crystals and could replace them in the future. Furthermore, concepts for loss-free, ultra-fast optical switches will be presented that are suitable for high-power lasers. These components convey the laser power in a loss-free way and will allow significantly more powerful ultra-short pulse lasers already in the oscillator stage.

In addition, the research centre will show concepts for weed control with the laser.
