Nagoya Laser Technopole is now active in opening of technical seminar and laser forum, and issue of Nagoya Laser News for the developments of and popularization of laser technology at Nagoya area.

LaserForum Tour

Purpose of Establishment

 Considering the developments of advanced science and technology and production technology, Nagoya Laser technopole has been funded in Nagoya area on May 14th, 1990.

 As you know, the diverse systems of Human Society are required in the information intensive society. From the view point of design, materials, material processing and evaluation of property, corresponding of technology has been diversified.

 On the other hand, applications of laser technology which is one of great invention in 20 centuries are expanded in last 10 years. Especially in developed countries, it is used in the fields of communication, information technology、medical field 、material processing, inspection and measurement, illumination and science. Various kinds of laser facility can be applied. Our society has pick up especially the production technology such as material processing, measurement and inspection. CO2 laser, YAG laser, Excimer laser(UV laser), Diode laser are now used in various industries.

 Our Nagoya area has a lot of automotive industry, machine tool industry, aerospace industry, metal work industry, and ceramics industry. So, Nagoya area is the center of laser application. Developed laser technology is not only conventional process but also new process as a technology which has a characteristics of high energy light.

 As laser is called as a “Quantum Machine”, scientific knowledges are required for the applications. On the other hand, Technological and actual knowledges are required for the applications in the fields of material processing and production technology. Laser technology is a science and technology which will be expected by combination of scientific and technical knowledges as a key technology in 21 century.

 So, it is necessary that researcher, engineer、and skillful technician meet together, and discuss on development of laser technology at Nagoya area. In 1990, more than 2000 laser machines have been produced in Japan. It means about 35% of world wide production. Nagoya area is lower level than Tokyo area and Osaka area from the view point of international research and development, information exchange, popularization.

 Then, Nagoya Laser Technopole has been funded as a place where a lot of researcher, engineer、and skillful technician meet together, and promote the developments of laser applications in the near future by appealing to university, governments and companies in Nagoya area. Hoping that Nagoya Laser Technolope can receive and dispatch the information of laser technology through their activities of correction of laser technology, technical seminar, promotion of cooperative research, factory observation on laser technology.
