Scientific and Industrial Applications of Ultrafast Lasers

Scientific and Industrial Applications of Ultrafast Lasers 

Wednesday, 16 May
Exhibit Hall Theatre I

Session Descriptions:

The Industrial Revolution of Ultrafast Science 
The first section of the presetnation will discuss how scientific applications of femtosecond lasers and user requirements are driving a continuing product evolution towards improved reliability and lifetime while pushing at the same time performances in term of available power and energy. 

Industrial Applications of Ultrafast Lasers
The second section of the presentation will discuss some of the industrial applications for ultrafast lasers including applications in the automotive, medical, and commercial markets.  As picosecond and femtosecond lasers evolve to offer higher pulse energy and higher output power processing times are improved, but thermal and debris management becomes more critical.
