WG2 – Industrial production and quality

Within the next 10 to 15 years, photons, the smallest particles of light – will increasingly be used in various kinds of product production processes. For instance, the pulsed laser used in the pico or femtosecond regime makes outstanding precisions possible. Furthermore, the benefits of applying optical micro processing to high brilliance laser production have been recognized. Most of the possibilities of machine vision, among others, have yet to be realized.
