Christophe ARNAUD - NOVIKA : « Laser microtextured surfaces behaviour on tribological and wear performances »

Christophe ARNAUD is a laser processing specialist for Solutions NOVIKA in Quebec – Canada. He studied in Laser, Optic and Photonics in France and has 17 years of experience in laser processing. M. ARNAUD has worked on CW and long pulse laser to develop laser welding of aluminum alloys (6xxx series) by multi-beam and by oscillating beam. He wrote technical papers dealing with laser polishing, laser structuring by remelting and laser additive manufacturing by wire-based metal deposition. On the other hand, he worked on short pulse laser and ultrashort pulse laser for laser composite machining, laser texturing and micromachining. He collaborated onto many projects and his skills in programming and integration led to a fully laser-based automated production of car for disabled people (laser retro-conception and machining) during LASHARE II project (SCALP).

Didier BOISSELIER - IREPA LASER : « Additive Manufacturing : markets, trends and innovations »

Didier Boisselier is specialized in laser applications applied on material treatment. He has been working in this field since 1985 at IREPA LASER, and has been in charge of the development of new laser applications (laser welding, soldering, and Laser Additive Manufacturing). He managed several European R&D projects, among them the first development of a Laser Metal Deposition process that gave the CLAD® process in 2007.  He directed the development of new machines and software dedicated for LMD-CLAD® application that led to the creation of the BeAM company in 2012. He is now in charge of Additive Manufacturing development at IREPA LASER.

Gladys MINGUEZ VEGA - JAUME UNIVERSITY : « Towards the scale-up of the synthesis of nanoparticles in liquids by pulsed lasers »

Gladys Mínguez-Vega (ORCID ID: 0000-0003-4994-1859 and Scopus ID: 6602370066) is Associate Professor of Optics in the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón (Spain). She received the B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Valencia (Spain) in 1997 and 2002, respectively. She has done research in different international centres as the Purdue University (EEUU), the Fernuniversität in Hagen (Germany), Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica (Mexico) and the Applied Optics Institute (Poland). At present, she is secretary of the Physics Department at the University Jaume I and co-leads the photonics research group “Grupo de Investigación de Óptica de Castellón, GROC•UJI”. Currently, she works in the laser-assisted synthesis of nanoparticles. This alternative eco-friendly method provides high-pureness and ligand-free nanoparticles that can be synthetized from almost any base material. She is interested in the development of promising advance materials with bactericidal properties, optical biosensing capabilities, drug-delivery, and the fabrication of nanofluids for harvesting solar energy.
