Fraunhofer ILT Researching Green Lasers for 3D Printing Copper

I remember how surprised I was when I first learned that a laser was not only a light-emitting device, but also an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” Lasers have many applications today, from laser surgery and laser engraving to laser light shows. There are also multiple 3D printing processes that use […]
