Horizon 2020

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 687222

Photonics 21

This project is an initiative of the Photonics Public Private Partnership.



In nearly every sector of industrial manufacturing a broad spectrum of surface processing techniques is used, e.g. for structuring, coating or polishing of aesthetical or functional surfaces. In the last years laser based surface processing techniques have made tremendous technical progress and are now entering industrial manufacturing on a broad scale. Reduced prices for short and ultra-short pulsed lasers and enhanced reliability promote especially laser structuring while new developments in the processing techniques are fostering laser polishing and laser thin-film processing.
