METAMORPHA Newsletter 2 released

The second project newsletter has been released, which includes items on the following developments in the last few months:

-Prize-winning RWTH beam shaping using SLMs
-Methods for the system synchronisation needed for real-time monitoring and control by fentISS.
-Micro-machining results from ILT
-An update on the data pre-processing required for machine learning development at UPV.

Please send an email if you wish to be added to the mailing list to receive these newsletters automatically.

We have a winner!

Congratulations to Paul Buske (RWTH) for winning the Best Student Paper Award at the International Optical Design Conference (IODC 2023) held in Québec City (Canada) earlier this summer.

The paper was titled Diffractive Neural Networks Built from Spatial Light Modulators for Laser Beam Shaping in the NIR and VIS and this novel approach will be instrumental in beam shaping using cascaded SLMs in METAMORPHA.

Metamorpha Newsletter 1 (Apr-2023)

The first METAMORPHA newsletter has been released, with some updates on the progress of the project so far:

  • First processing results on Ceratizit carbide punches at ILT
  • Optics design update from RWTH
  • Sustainability and circularity aspects of the project from Arditec
  • High resolution scanning technology from DATAPIXEL.

This is the first in a series of newsletters, released approximately twice per year, so please check back for updates.
