Workshop on Laser Applications
Photonics is a field of constant innovation that produces truly revolutionary products and capabilities based on investment in research and development. NEXPRESSO is a 3 year action started 01 June 2010 within the FP7 Programme and is designed to support SMEs and researchers through access to photonics technology and prototype components.
NEXPRESSO aims to put pre-competitive photonic components and systems in the hands of researchers and students at no net cost to the university or to the company that furnishes the prototypes and to facilitate transfer of the university results for potential end-users especially SMEs in new markets, new applications.
The Information Engineering Department is now in involved in the recently accepted R&D Nexpressso Project “Short-Pulse High-Speed Fiber Laser Cutting Of Multi-Layer Materials”. The kick-off meeting of the Nexpresso Project will be used as an opportunity to hold the current Workshop on laser applications.
Some of the most relevant and promising laser technology applications will be presented, ranging from both classical and novel industrial applications to medicine.
