Thursday, 31 October, 10:10am-11:10am
Abstract: Ultrafast lasers have moved rapidly during the last few years from advanced scientific instruments to industrial tools enabling the development of new medical and industrial applications. Their unique advantage of being able to interact with matter in an extremely precise way has been complemented by tremendous improvements in laser technology, most notably in terms of simplicity, reliability and size. We will review key ultrafast technologies available today, and will present selected case studies illustrating their acceptance into new applications, as well as outline future key developments.
