Modular lasers

  • 06-Jan-2009 11:59 EST

TruDisk lasers from Trumpf feature up to 16 kW of power and a Beam Parameter Product of 2 to 8 mm-mrad. The units maintain beam quality regardless of power increases, resulting in a scalable design. Integrated power sensors and real-time power feedback control enable continuous, steady, and reliable power at the workpiece. A modular design allows individual diodes and laser components to be serviced on-site. Greater access to fiber-optic cables enables service to be conducted while the laser is in operation, thus permitting parallel fibers to maintain production without interruption. The design also allows laser power upgrades with additional diodes.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
