Big Science in a Changing Business Context

The interaction between Big Science projects and their supply base is changing radically in the 21st century, due to evolving business context, globalization of markets and fragmentation of big science projects. To maintain necessary relevance to their enabling industrial suppliers, big science will need to evolve and organize differently its approach to market.

The National Science Agenda and Big Science

  • Dr. Jeannette Ridder-Numan Senior Policy Officer, Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Directorate Research & Science Policy

The Dutch National Research Agenda is based on questions from Dutch public to science. In this agenda 140 overarching questions are presented. The initiative intends to build a bridge across the entire chain of research and innovation. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has asked NWO to take responsibility for the Agenda and set up a programme to support it. The research is  meant to be cross-disciplinary. Big Science is connected to the questions of the Research Agenda as well. Information on the developments of the European and of the Dutch Roadmap for Research Infrastructure will be given.

New challenges and opportunities for high precision optics and mechanics at European XFEL

The European XFEL is a large x-ray free-electron laser facility already operating in the Hamburg area of Germany. It is designed to provide a transversally fully coherent x-ray radiation with outstanding characteristics in terms of high repetition rate, short wavelength, short pulses and and high average brilliance. The three main beamlines are operating or under final commissioning. The extraordinary characteristics of the beam are coming at the cost of many challenges for high precision optics and mechanics. We will describe the project, taking some particular examples of the present and future challenges.

Suspension of cryogenic detectors at 50 mK.

The European Space Agency (ESA) is preparing the technology for the next generation scientific space missions. The instruments on ATHENA and future far-infrared missions will make use of highly sensitive cryogenic detectors that require an accurate suspension with low thermal conductivity.
NTS Mecon and SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research are developing for ESA a Kevlar suspension for cryogenic detectors at 50 mK. The project goals are to further develop the suspension concept, to assess the technology through testing and to deliver a reliable and reproducible manufacturing process.

The High Luminosity LHC Project and its precision aspects

The LHC components for both accelerator and detectors will reach limits after 15 years of operation in 2023. The LHC and the Detectors will need at least an update. With cost effective measures it was decided to upgrade the accelerator and the experiments for new discoveries and challenges. The renewal of 1.2 km of LHC is an incubator for future technologies pushing the limits in many fields, adopting new solution, bringing to maturity and opening the way to the future. The lecture will concentrate on innovations, precisions aspects and a possible view of the future, connecting achievements with challenges.

Gravitational Waves: from first detection to next generation observatories

Gravitational Waves are the minuscule ‘ripples in space-time’ that are emitted when objects like black holes collide. Their first detection by the LIGO and Virgo observatories has started an exciting new field of astrophysics. These instruments are kilometer-long Michelson interferometers, which measure distances between seismically isolated mirrors with a sensitivity better than 1e-19 m/rtHz using state-of-the-art optics, mechanics and control.

This presentation will focus on the next generation of instruments, which should be 10 times more sensitive. Among these is the proposed 10 km long, underground Einstein Telescope, for which the Dutch/Belgium/German border is a candidate location.

Ultrafast lasers for advanced applications; High power femtosecond lasers, Spatial Light Modulation and transparent material processing

The precision needed nowadays, exceeds the limits of what can be achieved with traditional manufacturing methods, hence the rise of femtosecond laser applications.
New industrial solutions that benefit from the advantage of femtosecond lasers, such as the ability to induce absorption in any, even transparent, material while precisely controlling the heat affected zone, are discovered every day.
Three related advanced femtosecond laser topics will be discussed: the technological development of high power femtosecond lasers and its potential applications; Spatial Light modulator that allows modifying the beam profile in any shape for advanced processing and high throughput; and the processing of transparent materials.

Precision in laser processing of glass

Cutting of glass by laser processing has started close to 20 year ago already.
The latest technology by using ultra short laser pulses has been adapted for different applications in mobile phone, optical components, automobile and other markets.
It provides perfect glass edge qualities with automated separation in combination with dust free processing and high throughput.
Applications like cutting of optical components often require very precise dimensions in single digit µm range.
But not only the product dimensions also the process technology is in need of a highly accurate system in order to enable a stable process for cutting of glass in mass production.
This presentation will show the working principle of glass cutting by ultra short pulse laser processing and discuss the general requirements on system architecture in regards to precision and throughput.

Laser micro-milling and micro-texturing on curved surfaces using ultrashort pulse lasers

Laser micromachning using ultrashort pulse lasers can be used to machine micron-sized features that are not possible to machine using longer pulsed lasers, and they enable machining of a much larger variety of materials.
Applications of micro-texturing include changing the functional properties of a surface, such as friction or wetting properties. Micro-milling is used to machine accurately shaped pockets into materials, for example to machine molds, tooling or for rapid prototyping of small parts.
Recent advances of this technology are presented, together with a 5-axis machining system that was specifically developed for enabling texturing and milling on complex curved surfaces.

How to develop a clean high tech system

NTS develops, manufactures and assembles high tech modules or systems for semicon, analytical or healthcare industries. Design-for-cleanliness becomes more and more stringent for these sysems and operating conditions (e.g. vacuum systems). In order to achieve and maintain the required cleanliness level the first step is a first-time right system design. The design is based on experience, knowledge and combining all technical disciplines.

Optical Quality inspection for small structures

  • Jürgen Kemenas Specialist, SMD Production-Technology on behalf of TEVEL Techniek BV

Today’s sensors meet structure sizes in the μm or even nm range at high circuit complexity. These structures are usually printed in thin layer technology and coated in thin film technology. Sensors as well as glass-material usually have to be investigated for surface and coating defects by optical techniques. So far, it has been impossible or prohibitively expensive to implement automated quality assurance procedures for each individual optical measure and at high throughput. Quality assessment is therefore mostly limited to statistical sampling techniques employing specially trained personnel performing the evaluations. In the present pilot project, the authors have demonstrated a successful implementation of a system which adjusts the focus and RGB-Lighting with new developed technique features. Next, the image data are transferred to the AlfaVis analysis software developed and distributed by SMD Production-Technology. This software package is developed for the detection of various types of structural defects on the original sample, like missing circuit structures, short circuits or any other surface defects or surface pollution. The system is flexible and can be adapted quickly and easily to a change of sample layout requiring only minutes for the adjustment to the new layout and to the optimization process.
