Under the name of LAMPAS (High throughput Laser structuring with Multiscale Periodic feature sizes for Advanced Surface Functionalities), an international team of experts from TU Dresden starts working on laser-based surface treatment. The aim is to bring the promising new process to market maturity. In addition, the scientists of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering want to set a world record in production speed. “We are sure that the results will be groundbreaking for various industries and are therefore very pleased that we were able to win the position of leading European partner for the research project,” says Professor Andrés Fabian Lasagni, coordinator of the research project and holder of the professorship for laser-based methods of large-area surface structuring. The researchers see possible areas of application in medical technology, the automotive industry and energy research.
