NASA Satellite ICESat-2 Uses Lasers to Track Earth’s Vast Frozen Landscape

Sea-level rise is getting faster, and seas could be several feet higher by the end of the century. Melting ice in Greenland and Antarctica has increased, according to NASA. The mission called the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat-2) will take incredibly precise measurements of ice sheet depth, allowing scientists to add the third...


Fiber Laser Welding in Automotive Industry

Laser welding is a welding technique used to join multiple pieces of metal through the use of a laser beam. Nowadays many companies use lasers to weld parts together during the manufacturing stage of product design: these companies come from a wide range of industry sectors including medical, aerospace, and suchlike. Laser welding is used...


Femtosecond Laser Micromachining: Current Status and Promising Applications

Nowadays femtosecond lasers are being considered for a growing list of micromachining applications with their ability to process any material with a minimal amount of heat-affected zones (HAZ). This type of ultrafast lasers is an ideal technology not only for micromachining, but also for medical device fabrication, scientific research, eye surgery, and bioimaging. Short pulse...
