Joint UKP-User Center lauched

Ultrashort laser pulses are increasingly being used for precision machining. In Thuringia, in this field essential skills have been developed both in research as well as in industrial applications in recent years.
In order to reduce the barriers to industrial use and to allow a wide range of users an access to this technology, the University of Applied Science (EAH), the Günter-Köhler-Institut für Fügetechnik und Werkstoffprüfung (ifw) and the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP) of the University of Jena (FSU) have incorporated to an Ultrashort Pulse (UKP) - User Center. Priorities of the Centre are:
- Use of short pulsed lasers in laser precision machining
- Freeform removal of precision optical components
- Functionalization of surfaces
The aim of the cooperation is the pooling of expertise and technical capabilities by means of specific ideas from the industry. In particular, such companies should be given the opportunity to test the advantages of ultrashort pulses without the need of own detailed expertise and appropriate facilities in this theme. The UKP-User Center can be benefit from more than 20 years of experience in the field of ultrashort laser pulses - amongst others through the person of Prof. Stefan Nolte (IAP) as the coordinator of the nationwide BMBF-Research Association "Ultra-short pulsed lasers for high-precision machining" and winner of the German Future Prize 2013.
On the OptoNet Workshop "precision machining with ultrashort laser pulses" on 10 June 2015, the UKP-User Center will be presented to public in JenTower (Leutragraben). Please register under
