A team led by SPIE Member Reinhart Poprawe at the Fraunhofer Institute of Laser Technology has won the North Rhine-Westphalia Innovation Award. The award recognizes their research on selective laser melting that allows components such as medical implants to be manufactured in a cost-effective manner.

Poprawe is an author of more than 100 papers published in the SPIE Digital Library, most recently presented at SPIE Photonics West on the physics and applications of ultrafast lasers.
