 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The LIFT project will establish international leadership for Europe in the science, application and production technologies for material processing by fibre lasers through the development of innovative laser sources. Major advances beyond the state of the art are planned: The cold-ablation fibre laser, based on ultra-short pulses, will open an entirely new market (100 mill.€ p.a.) for laser processing of ceramics. The extreme high-power fibre laser will enlarge the EUV lithography market (500 mill.€ p.a.) to include fibre lasers. The visible RGB fibre laser will produce the first high-brilliance source for laser projection displays (15 mill.€ p.a.). New future-oriented manufacturing tools based on higher-power pulsed fibre lasers (80 mill.€ p.a.). The high-reliability laser for large-scale manufacturing with High Speed Laser Remote Processing - means a new level of performance for 2kWatt materials-processing lasers with raised MTBF to 50.000 hours (accessible market 1 bill.€ p.a.). The Horizontal integration and networking in Europe’s high brilliance laser industry in this project will enable a greater market share for existing applications, create new areas of exploitation for manufacturing, and build a European network of component suppliers, laser manufacturers, universities and research institutes. As a result, LIFT will cause the following results to emerge: 1. Europe would take advantage of novel laser sources to be employed for various processing applications, many of which cannot even be treated by today’s lasers. 2. European companies will benefit by the exploitation of the knowledge by the LIFT consortium in the field of fibre lasers, thus creating new markets and improving productivity in existing ones, thus building the competitiveness and the technological role of Europe; 3. The society as a whole would benefit from the results of LIFT, because in many sectors the further development of laser processing is crucial for the improvement of the quality'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Advanced fibre lasers have numerous advantages over conventional lasers including better efficiency and beam quality at a lower cost. The latest systems developed with EU support will put Europe at the forefront of an emerging global market.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Fibre lasers accounted for only about 10 % of the laser market share in 2007. With a growth rate of about 25 % per year, that share was set to be more than 30 % of all industrial lasers sold by 2013. Scientists initiated the EU-funded project 'Leadership in fibre technology' (http://www.lift-project.eu/ (LIFT)) to develop a greater market share for existing applications and create new market opportunities for a world leading position.

Scientists developed innovations beyond the current state of the art, targeting advances in high-brilliance fibre laser technology for use in three important areas. These were laser materials processing, health care delivery and cost-effective manufacturing of solar cells for renewable energy.

Among the technologies developed, the cold-ablation fibre laser exploiting ultra-short pulses is expected to penetrate a new market (100 million euro per year) for processing ceramics. The visible-range fibre laser should enable new eye therapies and could be the first high-brilliance source for laser projection displays (15 million euro per year). The lasers could also form the basis of next-generation manufacturing tools (80 million euro per year).

Taken together, LIFT technology should ensure that the EU corners the booming international laser market through advances in existing applications and new opportunities. More information is available on the project website.
