µRevolution – worldwide most compact system for surface structuring by means of scanner-based direct laser interference patterning

Press release (Nr. XII) - Fraunhofer IWS / 16.6.2017

Functionalization of technical surfaces by means of natural, bio-inspired structures is an innovation driver of the 21th century. The functionalities achieved are applicable for e.g. improved bio-compatibility in medical and biotechnological industries, for tribological applications in the automotive industry and for optical applications such as product and brand protection. Fraunhofer IWS has been developing modularly designed solutions for surface functionalization tasks by fabricating micrometer and sub-micrometer structures in a targeted and flexible manner. Scientists of the Fraunhofer IWS will present for the very first time the worldwide most compact system for surface structuring by means of scanner-based direct laser interference patterning at the tradeshow Laser World of Photonics in Munich.
