Paper Abstract

At the second EUREKA ministerial conference held in Hannover on November 5 and 6 1985, the participating governments agreed to launch 10 projects one of which was the EUROLASER project (EU 6). The EUROLASER project comprised firstly a definitionsphase, which was based on a joint proposal put forward by industry and scientific institutes in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany,France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom. The project covers the evaluation and development of industrial lasers and applications for material processing in the following areas: - CO2 laser systems in the power range of 10-100 kW, - high-power solid state laser systems in the power range of 1-5 kW, - excimer lasers with an output power of up to 10 kW, - other laser systems to be defined. The definitionphase ended in December 1987 with the result of feasibility studies. Out of the project EU 6 several realisationsphase projects emerged: CO2 laser: EU 83, EU 180, EU 214 / solid state laser: EU 226 / Excimer laser: EU 205, EU 213 / laser applications: EU 194.
