Laser Processing Technology


At IAM-AWP, laser processing technology is used in basic and application specific research programs. The R&D topics include functionalization of materials properties, micro-joining technologies and 3D shaping by materials ablation on a micrometer and submicrometer scale. Current research topics focus on the development of 

  • novel energy storage systems 
  • laser-assisted processes for additive manufacturing and related post-processing
  • surface processes for functionalization and micro-/nanostructuring 
  • laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for quantitative elemental analysis on metals and composite materials

Metals, ceramics, polymers, composite materials and thin films are processed with highest precision using the latest advanced laser systems.
