LASER World of PHOTONICS 2017

The Fraunhofer IOF at the leading trade fair for photonic technologies. We are looking forward to your visit. June 26–29, 2017 in munich

The Fraunhofer IOF at the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2017

Fair-Highlights 2017

 

The Fraunhofer IOF will present photonic components and systems "Made in Jena" at the Fraunhofer pavillion (Hall B3 Stand 327). Innovations from the fields of optical systems, micro- and nanostructured components, quantum technology and fiber technology are shown. On the following page you will find an overview of all Fraunhofer IOF exhibits and events.

 

Entangled Photon Source
Exponat IOF 16

 

Experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena, developed a new satellite-based source for entangled photons. Twinned or »entangled« photons can be used for secure encryption. A quantum photon source may send a series of photons to one or two receivers through fibers or free space, and after some processing, the series may serve as a key for the encryption of the actual message. This is called quantum key distribution (QKD). QKD technology will be part of a new generation of space-based laser systems that will allow faster and more secure communication among satellites and between satellites and ground stations.

Robotic Light Scattering Sensor

Exponat IOF 2

 

A compact scatter sensor, developed at Fraunhofer IOF, has now been combined with a collaborative and interactive robot in order to fully exploit its potential. This system and novel software modules enable the sensor to be automatically traced over complex shaped surfaces with diameters of up to 1 m to map the entire surface e.g. for roughness. On the other hand, the collaborative robot with its integrated protective mechanisms, keeps the safety efforts minimal and would even enable a mobile application of the entire system. The collaborative operation also allows positioning of the sensor at selected sample positions by hand. Thereby the sensors position is tracked and the results are registered in a surface map.

Additive manufacture of lightweight mirrors

Exponat IOF 4

 

Selective Laser Melting can generate complex geometrics slice by slice out of metal powder - for instance aluminium - directly from CAD data. Thereby the powder particles are merged by a high power laser. Compared to chipping technologies, additive manufacturing techniques offer great potential to achieve metal optics with reduced weight as they allow nearly unlimited freedom of design. Material which is not increasing stability is left away. This design allows extremely lightweigt optics with a high stability at the same time. Lightweigt mirrors are applied in laser material processing as well as in optical instruments for space missions.
