Collecting complex climate data thanks to compact alexandrite lasers

Higher atmospheric layers are becoming more and more interesting for climate researchers, but the areas above 40 km are only directly accessible with sounding rockets. A newly developed LIDAR system (Light Detection and Ranging) with a diode-pumped alexandrite laser will soon make such research possible remotely. Scientists from the Leibniz-Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT are developing a system that is not only easy to transport but also works independently. In the future, a LIDAR network will be able to deliver data from the atmosphere continuously and on a large scale.

formnext 2019: Fraunhofer ILT spin-off wins Start-up Challenge

A spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT receives a special distinction: the Aachen-based company Laser Melting Innovations GmbH & Co. KG is one of the winners of the “formnext Start-up Challenge” 2019. The young Aachen scientists will be honored by the jury for the development of their low-cost system on November 19 at the formnext in Frankfurt on the AM4U stage (hall 11.0-F71). With this system for Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) with metal powder, SMEs in particular have at their disposal an industry-suitable system technology for metallic 3D printing.
