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.

IODC 2023

The quadrennial IODC is an important meeting in optical design for engineers, scientists and designers. Topics include illumination system theory, design and fabrication, surface representation in lens design, freeform optics and more.

7th UKP Workshop-Ultrafast Laser Technology

The 7th UKP Workshop Ultrafast Laser Technology is organised and hosted by METAMORPHA Coordinator Fraunhofer ILT. The event will focus on processes and systems that can help companies capitalize on the full range of laser performance, such as high speed scanning or suitable beam shaping.

Interesting presentations will provide valuable know-how about selecting the right laser source or individually modifying the laser beam profile in time and space in order to have optimal process conditions. Furthermore, experts will discuss how to push the boundaries of today’s ultrafast laser process engineering.

Photonics West 2023

SPIE Photonics West is one of the largest annual photonics events in the world. It covers a wide range of topics: biomedical optics, biophotonics, industrial lasers, optoelectronics, microfabrication, MOEMS-MEMS, displays, and more.
