World premieres, innovations and more
Five halls with the latest products and solutions from photonics—visitors to LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 can look forward to that.
Innovations, startups, and the World of Photonics Congress make the fair a gauge for the dynamic rate of innovation in photonics.
LASER World of PHOTONICS—the innovation platform
Light is the fastest, most precise, and most innovative tool for human beings. Whether in production, biomedical research and practice, metrology, space exploration. or in future fields, such as mixed reality, smart mobility, or nanostructuring of microprocessors with extreme UV light. LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 brings innovations and innovators together and, as a result, acts as a gauge for the dynamic rate of innovation in our industry.
Numerous entries for the 2019 Innovation Award
For the Innovation Award which Messe München will be presenting in cooperation with publishing house Europa Science, exhibitors have submitted almost 60 products and solutions.The submitted innovations are split evenly among five categories in which the jury recently picked the three finalists. They include a linear array detector for the visible infrared range (VIS SWIR), a femtosecond laser for biophotonics and the new blue NUBURU laser with 500 watts power for machining reflective metals. Civan Advanced Technologies is presenting an innovation based on its optical phased array technology for electro-optical beam control for shorter processing times and improved process quality. TRUMPF, TOPTICA, Rofin Sinar UK, Xenics, SWIR Vision Systems, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Qingdao Lasence, and many more exhibitors have announced new solutions for
Start-Up Award: Six finalists have been chosen
In addition to the established manufacturers, newly founded companies are also driving innovation in photonics. LASER World of PHOTONICS offers them a platform at the joint startup booth and will be presenting the Start-Up Award for the third time this year. Here, too, the jury has picked six finalists. They see their entrepreneurial future in LiDAR sensors and SWIR cameras for driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles, real-time sensors for bacteria on food, 3D and infrared sensors, and the generation of free-floating hologram-like images and videos, and the production of miniature spectrometers based on fiber Bragg gratings that can be inscribed in the fiber core with ultrashort pulse lasers.
