    Collaboration Gives Laser System Control to the Cloud

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A data center-based system to control and monitor industrial processes has been introduced by a team at RWTH Aachen University, in cooperation with Fraunhofer ILT. The concept for the system is based on a project for controlling laser systems developed at Fraunhofer ILT, and it uses Kubernetes, open source software that can automatically install, scale, and maintain application programs on distributed computing systems.

    The corresponding system has been running successfully at ILT for two years. With it, the institute can automatically and remotely install the software for new lasers in just a few minutes.
    The Kubernetes software is used, for example, to control ultrashort-pulse laser systems. The scientists are currently…
