- Sensors: Monitor, adjust, document - The boom in process sensors is giving a whole new edge to laser material processing. Why are we using more and more sensors, and what impact is it having on the world of manufacturing?
- The new light source: A new kind of window glass from Saint-Gobain lets in lots of light and strongly reduces heat losses. All it took was an impossible laser optic.
- Prof. Albert Stolow: In the interview the molecular researcher says: "Delving into the fundamentals of nature is almost akin to a religious experience".
- Entrepreneurs: Photonics and especially laser technologies have turned generations of inventors and engineers into entrepreneurs. Now a new era is emerging.
- Laser marking: The seemingly simple concept of laser marking has evolved into a highly connectable, versatile technology for surface treatment.
- Interview: The inventor of the disk laser Prof. Adolf Giesen about the future of the disk.
- Industry 4.0: Data, light, and the factory of the future – Factories are getting smarter, more digital, and more flexible. Lasers are the ideal tool for Industry 4.0.
- 3D printing: A Swiss start-up prints the most secure key in the world; the experts in coolant systems at Grindaix print nozzles with an optimized flow.
- Micro-processing: Tokyo-based LPS Works develops new microprocessing methods for unusual materials.
- And now it's time for the weather: Physicists fire lasers at clouds. Their aim is to better understand – and change – the weather.
- The most interesting discoveries in my laboratory were all serendipitous: Harvard physics professor Eric Mazur reflects on the discovery of black silicon and the art of serendipity.
- Railways: Photon AG is implementing solutions on trains that were previously only possible for cars.
- Lighter with lasers: Laser processing also excels when processing (sometimes unconventional) lightweight materials. An overview of the key laser joining and separating processes is also provided.
- Materials in the automotive industry: Oliver Schauerte, head of materials research and manufacturing processes at Volkswagen, discusses the latest trends in terms of materials.
- Welcome to infinity: THE Machines welds coils that truly never end.
- "More light!" In an essay, Nobel Prize winner Shuji Nakamura explains why inexpensive light forms the basis for civilization and progress.
- "Adding depth to surfaces" A small but perfectly formed institute conducts research into the smallest, most perfectly formed structures for functional surfaces.
- "A model of success" Automotive giant GKN Driveline has been welding drive components with lasers for 14 years. Now the tried-and-tested system is moving to the next round – featuring disk lasers.
