Underwater laser cutting process developed

Engineers at the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) and the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) are developing a process for automated, underwater laser cutting which could improve the cutting speed by a factor of seven. Once finished, the process could be used for dismantling nuclear power plants or sheet piling, and the maintenance and repair of offshore structures.

Element Six helps TiSa laser cool down as project heats up

A EU-funded initiative that aims to further develop an ultrafast pulsed disk laser that will have the highest speeds and output powers ever achieved, has chosen Element Six to assist the design using its cooling crystals. The laser will improve the micromachining processes used to produce transparent materials, such as the glass for smart phones.

2013 German Future Prize awarded for ultrashort-pulse laser technology

Scientists from Bosch, Trumpf, Jena University and Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF) have been awarded the 2013 German Future Prize for their collective effort in transforming the ultrashort-pulse laser into an effective series-production tool. The award honours top scientific work that shows a high level of economic potential.
