UCF, Fraunhofer Team for Lasers
University of Central Florida (UCF) President John C. Hitt signed a research agreement this week with the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (Fraunhofer ILT), an industrial laser and laser applications laboratory located in Aachen, Germany. The agreement will explore areas of common interest in advanced high-power laser development and laser machining technologies and was instigated by Dr. Martin Richardson through the UCF Townes Laser Institute at the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL).
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
