3. Materials Processing: Emerging opportunities and requirements (half day Symposium)
Materials processing is the leading application for high-power lasers and a key driver for laser development. Whereas laser scientists may well be familiar with the requirements on the laser, they are often less familiar with the requirements on the processing itself, e.g.,  in terms of parameters relating to quality and speed. The symposium aims to present these requirements and highlight improvement trends in order to enable laser scientists to understand where and how improvements in lasers can contribute to improvements in processing.

The symposium welcomes submissions of regular papers on any type of lasers for materials processing, but submissions which  highlight processing quality are particularly welcome.
