Microtechnology

The laser as a tool for micro processes and surface functionalization

 

Micro materials processing

IWS engineers utilize substantial equipment and facility installations and solid know-how to perform applied research projects in the field of micro and fine processing with laser beams. Targeted applications are the miniaturization of functional elements in machines, systems, vehicles, instruments and medical devices.
 

Micro- and biosystems engineering

Targeted applications are the miniaturization of functional elements in biosystems and medical devices. Examples include the fabrication of 3D structures of sub-millimeter dimensions and for their application in biosensor and cell structure technology. Furthermore they include the development of all related measurement and control devices as well as the software integration.
 

Surface functionalization

New methods are developed to fabricate 2D and 3D micro-and nano structures on surfaces of polymers, ceramics and coatings. In addition to these topological modifications it is also possible to periodically vary ….
