“21st Century Applications of Power Photonics”

Power Photonics technology is playing an increasingly important role in manufacturing and 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of the first working laser, developed by Theodore Maiman at Hughes Research Lab in 1960. Initially a wonder of science and then an industrial tool the rate of development of laser sources and applications continues unabated. This seminar concentrates on 21st century manufacturing needs, singling out recent applications that illustrate the scope and potential of the laser revolution.
