From 26 to 30 August 2019, TU Dresden and the Fraunhofer IWS are organizing the eighth International Summer School "Trends and New Developments in Laser Technology". The one-week summer school offers students and PhD students the opportunity to study basic and applied aspects of laser technology. The program consists of expert lectures, supplemented by participant presentations and informal discussion sessions, as well as laboratory practice. The course focuses on sharing and exchanging new ideas in the field of laser technology.


  • Surface hardening technologies
  • High speed 2D laser cutting
  • Laser welding
  • Additive manufacturing processes
  • Applications of ultra short pulsed lasers
  • Laser process simulation
  • Laser micro/nano structuring, laser interference patterning

In addition, the programme will include:

  • Participant presentations (15 minutes)
  • 4 practices at IWS laboratories



Center for Advanced Micro-Photonics (CAMP)

CAMP explores laser-based surface modification and patterning methods. Driven by current trends in laser-based micro processing, the Center targets opportunities and challenges in the development of new system, process and measurement solutions.  


Chair of Large Area Laser Based Surface Structuring

LMO focuses on the development of technologies for the high speed functionalization of technical surfaces. To achieve this objective, we try to find the relationships between surface morphology with specific surface properties. The complex topographies that are required are produced either by laser based technologies or roll to roll imprinting and hot embossing methods.
