A View of the New: Ultrafast Lasers
Michelle Stock, Ph.D., writes about lasers that produce pulses of light so short that they put interesting physics into play. These lasers can vaporize material away, rather than melting.

 On The Cover: This is GE Aviation’s fuel nozzle for the new LEAP engine. It’s a groundbreaking part because GE has committed to using additive manufacturing (AM) to produce more than 30,000 of the fuel nozzles annually. The new design, made possible because of AM, consolidates 18 parts into one, and is 25% lighter and five times more durable than the previous fuel nozzle. Courtesy of GE Aviation.
