Title: Nanoscale Additive Manufacturing: Coming of Age
Speaker: Min GU
IMG_256Abstract: Additive manufacturing is a process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, which is usually achieved by layer upon layer approaches. The utilisation of a laser beam is one of the effective ways to achieve this process.? In the case of laser additive manufacturing, the fundamental restriction is the limit of the feature size, which is determined by the so called Abbe’s law discovered by a German physicist, Ernst Abbe, in 1873. Abbe’s barrier means that the size of the features generated by a laser beam is approximately 300 nm, for example, in a visible beam. In this presentation, I will show how Abbe’s limit can be broken in the recent development of optical beam nanolithography. Therefore, the feature size by a laser beam focused by a high numerical lens can be remarkably reduced to 9 nm in a polymerisable material. This breakthrough in laser additive manufacturing will not only provide means that the capacity of an optical disk can be as high as Petabytes, which will allow for the accelerating development of green optical data centres, but also facilitate a new horizon of ultrahigh energy density super-capacitors, nanoscale organic optoelectronic devices, nanoscale chemical reaction chips, artificial neural networks, and biomimetic systems.

Title: Industry 4.0 – Next generation ultrafast laser systems and ablation applications
Reinhart Poprawe.jpgSpeaker: Reinhart POPRAWE
Abstract: The context of future Laser Applications in modern manufacturing can be summarized by “Digital Photonic Production”. The vision of designing a structure or product in the computer and creating it additively or by ablation with high power ultrafast lasers drives many research topics in this area. But also the integration into production chains with the challenge of meeting the demands of production along the lines of Industry 4.0 is starting to be addressed seriously. From the point of Laser technology, main fields of activity are measurement processes of quality relevant data on-line, process control mechanisms and the combination with automation as a whole. A huge challenge is the data handling and control system technology, which up to now is fragmented and component specific. The need of more integrated data control systems becomes obvious.
Of course, the processes themselves are under intense investigation, such as Laser Ultrafast Ablation and Laser Drilling. Removal rates are the prime goal under economical aspects. New concept and performance results under this aspect will be presented. Also correspondingly increased quality of the resulting products in terms of surface roughness and precision is a key issue of consideration. At ILT the strategy is the continuous improvement of average power of ps- and fs-Laser sources. The present world record in sub ps-pulse durations is 1.5 kW demonstrated in Aachen.

Biography: Reinhart Poprawe has worked in the laser industry and its related organizations for over 30 years. He received an M.A. in physics from California State University in Fresno in 1977.

Title: Development of Microsphere Assisted Laser Nano-lithography and Optical Nano-imaging Technologies
Speaker: Minghui HONG
Abstract: Pushing the optical resolution beyond 100 nm is a key task for laseradvanced manufacturing and light-based surface imaging. Microsphere possesses its versatile capability to enable our current laser precision engineering and optical microscopy down to nanometers scale. In this talk, I will report our research progresses on laser surface nano-patterning and optical nano-imagingvia microsphere. By fine tuning laser processing parameters, feature sizes down to 20 nm areachieved. To enhance laser nano-patterning speed, fs laser micro-lens array (MLA) lithography is developed to achieve parallel, maskless and non-contact surface patterningto push current laser precision engineering resolution down to sub-100 nm over a large area (cm scale) at a high speed (millions of micro-devices to be created in a few minutes). Meanwhile, we can also insert a microsphere between sample surface and objective lens to enhance optical imaging resolution in both contact and non-contact modes. Feature sizes down to 25nm are observed successfully. By microsphere engineering, fs laser illumination and multiplemicrospheres design, this optical microscope nanoscope would be able to process and image much smaller feature sizes in ambient environment.

Title: Some milestones in the design, development and manufacture of freeform optics
Speaker: William T. PLUMMER
BILL照片wtp.jpgAbstract: Freeform optics are lenses or mirrors with surfaces having no rotational symmetry. They were conceived more than a century ago, but have recently received new attention for solving design problems. The special methods needed to manufacture them have included direct cam driven or digital grinding or milling, hot glass sagging, casting, injection molding, and fast-tool diamond turning. More recently, precision 3D printing and nano-crystalline powder compression molding have offered promising new capabilities for inexpensive high-volume commercial production in the future. Applications of freeform optics have included progressive spectacle lenses, focus adjusting devices, and aperture phase masks for special purposes. These design applications and manufacturing capabilities have been related to each other in interesting ways, and will be illustrated through a selection of patents and photographs of commercial products.

Biography: William Plummer received his PhD in physics from Johns Hopkins. He has taught optics at Hopkins, the University of Massachusetts, and Tufts, is a Senior Lecturer at MIT, and has 102 US patents. During three decades at Polaroid he was Senior Director for optical engineering. He has awards from the OSA, is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering, and is an Advisory Board member at BMF Material Technology, Shenzhen.

Title: Solar Adaptive Optics in IOE
158176337.jpgAbstract:The Research and Development on Adaptive Optics in China began in 1979. In 1980, the first laboratory on Adaptive Optics (AO) in China was established in the Institute of Optics and Electronics (IOE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Until now, more than one hundred sets of AO systems had been successfully developed in the fields of the astronomical observations, Inertial Confinement Facilities, and human vision sciences, laser communications, etc. This presentation concentrates on solar AO developments in IOE, CAS. In China, several solar AO systems had been built since 2000. The first solar tilt-correction system was developed for the 43-cm solar telescope of Nanjing University in 2002. A 37-element AO experiment system for the 26-cm solar fine structure telescope at Yunnan Astronomical Observatories was built in 2009. Two generations of AO systems for NVST had been developed from 2012 to 2015. In order to enlarge the correction Field of View, a GLAO prototype system was built at the 1-meter NVST and made the first light in January 2016. In January 2017, a MCAO experiment system was set up and tested at the NVST on October 5th, 2017. Currently, a 1.8-m solar telescope with more than 400-element AO system and seven-wavelength high resolution imaging system from visible to near Infrared bands are being developed for solar physics research and space weather prediction. Moreover, a new MCAO system based on our proposed MCAO configuration with a high order ground layer adaptive optics and two low order high altitude corrections will be developed for the NVST as an a regularly operating instrument for scientific observations of the sun. In this talk, the solar AO systems will be introduced and the observation results are presented.
