The Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik IWS and the Technical University of Dresden organize an International Summer School "Trends and new developments in Laser Technology" from August 28 until 31, 2018. This one-week International Summer School aims to bring together undergraduate and PhD students for an intensive programme of study on fundamental and applied aspects of laser technology.

The main programme will consist of lectures by renowned experts, supplemented by poster presentations and informal discussion sessions, as well as practices in the laboratory. The course aims to enable the exchange of new ideas across these fields.


Topics

  • 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


Event location

Winterbergstraße 28, 01277 Dresden

Cooperation

 

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.
