After 50 years of research and development, the modern industrial laser takes on many forms. With high efficiencies, power levels in the TW range, and pulse widths below the magical electron-phonon timescales of materials, the current capabilities of modern lasers are quite breath-taking. This talk will discuss the research currently being pursued within the university, and how lasers are being used in a range of novel industrial applications that are set to transform the global manufacturing landscape.

Professor Bill O’Neill is a Professor of Laser Engineering within the Cambridge University Engineering Department and Director of the Centre of Industrial Photonics. He has written over 170 research publications and scientific papers on the subject of laser-matter interactions, optical engineering, laser based manufacturing technologies, and micro/nano fabrication techniques.

Time: Refreshments served from 18.30. Talk starts at 19.00. Ends around 20.30 following questions and discussion. There will also be an opportunity for a short tour of some of the laboratories at the IfM.

Venue: Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge University, Alan Reece Building, 17 Charles Babbage Road, Cambridge CB3 0FS (directions). There is ample free parking in the IfM’s carpark beside the building; the carpark entrance is just past the IfM’s service road.

Free to attend. Booking not required. All welcome.

This talk is open to the public and is suitable for students and engineers. You are encouraged to bring with you colleagues, friends and family who are interested in engineering and lasers.
