Functional surface treatments using ultra-short pulse laser system FemtoSurf

Project description

Superfast lasers make very tiny patterns on very large structures

Creating 3D patterns on surfaces changes their properties and the way they interact with other materials. Ultrafast lasers are proving particularly promising in this realm. Surface features on scales from nanometre to millimetre sizes can be controlled to fine-tune functionality and performance in numerous applications from aerospace to biomedicine with particular interest in wettability, attraction and repelling. The EU-funded FemtoSurf project has a bold idea for these tiny patterns. The team is developing the technology to enable the simultaneous yet individual control of up to multi-beam of ultrafast laser light for surface patterning. When integrated into an automated industrial setup, the system will enable patterning at the micrometre scale in components exceeding several metres in length.
