Quantum Technology for Advanced Imaging – QUILT

Selected preparation, control and use of individual photons and quantum states for modern applications – in October 2017, six Fraunhofer Institutes launched a new lighthouse project: QUILT (Quantum Methods for Advanced Imaging Solutions). The scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have begun to develop robust, marketable photon sources for imaging processes based on quantum technology. Conceivable areas of application can be found in medical or measuring technology, in which new areas of the electromagnetic spectrum can be tapped and the limits of imaging extended.

SLM with optimized processing technique and new materials: magnesium alloys pave the way for new application areas

A special processing technique now allows Selective Laser Melting (SLM) to beused with more difficult materials such as magnesium alloys, copper alloys, andother crack-prone, difficult-to-weld metals. The use of these materials makes itpossible to employ the SLM process in new application areas. Several exampleswill be presented in a lecture session at the International Laser TechnologyCongress AKL’16 and the accompanying “Laser Technology Live” event at theFraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT.
