Researchers at the National Robotarium at Heriot-Watt University secured funding to develop 3D laser beams that can be shaped to match industry needs and tailored to the task at hand. The funding — from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation — will support the development of lasers for industry and medical applications. Cancer surgery is one such use, where it is hoped that more precise medical instruments could allow the resection of tumors without removing healthy surrounding tissue.
Results from the researchers’ work could also be used to improve methods of drilling holes for sensors and cameras on smartphones, and to increase the density of information on…READ MORE
