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.
Paul Buske (RWTH) presented a paper at this event on Diffractive Neural Networks Built from Spatial Light Modulators for Laser Beam Shaping in the NIR and VIS.
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.
A new METAMORPHA LinkedIn page has been set up to extend the dissemination activities of the project. We will add posts to this page during the course of the project. Please feel free to join the page for updates and inform your colleagues of the project!!
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.
The project held its KO meeting at Fraunhofer ILT 01-02 Sep-2022. It was great to get back to meeting new and old colleagues face-to-face after so many online meetings! The project will hold plenary meetings twice a year, with many other technical meetings and calls as required.
