Valuable Resources in Laser Manufacturing

When discussing resources to increase your laser manufacturing knowledge, blogs may not be the first thing that comes to mind! There are plenty of credible, informative laser manufacturing blogs online. This week, on Lasers Today we highlighted some of our favorites, suitable for every level of laser professional.

With the new year quickly approaching, be sure to take a closer look at the new reporting guidelines from OSHA. The new guidelines require all incidents to be reported online, where they can be viewed by the public. The decision has divided affected industries, with some celebrating the increased transparency, and others citing privacy concerns and the potential for bad press as negatives for the decision. Find the details here.

In case you missed it last week, Lasers Today shared a guest post on The Magic of Nonlinear Laser Processing: Shaping Multi-Functional Lab-in-Fiber. Learn how the manipulation of femtosecond laser light inside transparent media can be used for dense memory storage, 3D circuits, and more. Find the in-depth look at the process here.
