2nd International UV WORKshop


Top-Level Exchange of Knowledge

Olching, Germany, November 28, 2019 – Around 70 high-ranking experts used the 2nd International UV WORKshop hosted by LASER COMPONENTS and SPECTARIS to exchange knowledge and experience. On November 26 and 27, 2019, the participants had a packed program. A wide range of topics was covered in 33 lectures.

At the beginning of the event, Dr. Wenko Süptitz from the SPECTARIS industry association offered a forecast of trends in the photonics industry for the coming decade. In the section on emission, Peter E. Gordon from the US manufacturer BOLB explained the role that disruptive UVC LEDs will play in disinfection solutions in the future. UV lasers will also make a significant contribution in promising fields such as quantum technology. Dr. Ulrich Eismann of Toptica Photonics is certain of this.

With new research results on UV transmission in glass fibers, Philipp Raithel from TH Mittelhessen opened discussion on the topic of transmission. Dr. Sina Malobabic from LASER COMPONENTS showed how UV absorption in optics can be reduced in plasma-assisted coating processes, while Dr. Tilmann Weiß from sglux GmbH shared his findings on the aging processes of UV detectors.

UV-supported applications were not neglected either. Petra Burger from Dr. Hönle AG compared the advantages and disadvantages of UV LEDs and lamps. In the lecture by Linda Kokkola from Waterspring AB, the discussion revolved around the use of UVC LEDs in water disinfection. Hanns S. Eckhardt from tec5 AG presented fiber optic systems for industrial applications.

“The wide range of topics and the informative content are crucial to the success of our event series,” explains host Dr. Olga Stroh-Vasenev from LASER COMPONENTS. “Once again this year, it was evident that research in UV technology is constantly opening up new areas of application.”

This event series in Olching takes place every year, alternating annually between the UV WORKshop and IR WORKshop. The next date for this event is November 9 and 10, 2020.
