Press Release of Fraunhofer ILT /

Current developments from the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Advanced Photon Sources CAPS. Fraunhofer CAPS promotes the cooperative development and processing of a new generation of laser systems through a cross-institute research structure by increasing the output power of ultrashort pulse lasers (UKP) by an order of magnitude and investigating their potential applications.

The focus is on three research fields whose current development status will be presented at LASER by the participating institutes Fraunhofer ILT, Fraunhofer IOF, Fraunhofer IZI-BB, Fraunhofer HHI, Fraunhofer IFAM, Fraunhofer IKTS, Fraunhofer ISIT Fraunhofer IWS and Fraunhofer IAF:

Laser beam sources

Including gas multipass cell for post-compression of ultrashort femtosecond lasers; high-resolution nanoscope with an EUV laser source.

Systems engineering

Multi-beam demonstrator

Laser application

Including large electrolyzer structured by ultrafast laser for the conversion of electrical energy into hydrogen; ultrafast laser drilling for e.g. aerosol generators; flexible glass lenses for thermal imaging cameras
