The “5th UKP-Workshop: Ultrafast Laser Technology“ will focus on new systems engineering solutions for increasing the productivity of processes in ultrashort pulse laser material processing (USP). In addition to the basics of USP technology, 20 speakers from different countries will address current issues: How can large average output powers of USP laser beam sources be realized and efficiently implemented in the corresponding machining processes? Which system-technical solution approaches and beam shaping concepts are available to distribute the high average power on the workpiece surface and which new possibilities of material processing result from this? What do users have to consider with regard to process technology? And what challenges must be mastered in system technology?
In addition to the new developments and trends in USP technology, new findings on the generation of X-rays will also be presented. Furthermore, experts will present the latest laser-based applications and processing methods that extend the limits of existing technologies in terms of process speed, quality and material range.
Some 200 participants are expected, and the increased number of international visitors reflects the international importance of the topic. The conference language is English with simultaneous interpretation in German. Registration is now open at www.ultrafast-laser.com.
