Top Issues of Fraunhofer ILT

With around 420 employees, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen is one of the leading R&D institutes in its sector. For more than 30 years Fraunhofer experts have been developing and optimizing laser beam sources and methods for industrial production, medical and measurement technology, energy generation and environmental protection.


Top Issues of Fraunhofer ILT at LASER 2017:

  • Laser beam source development (diode, solid-state, fiber and ultrashort pulse lasers as well as tunable lasers for material processing, measurement technology and space applications)
  • Laser systems for satellite-based measurement of the climate-relevant gas methane in space
  • Optical design and development as well as packaging
  • Laser processing technology for macro processing (including processing head for combined laser processing, online process control, extreme high-speed laser welding, high-speed cutting)
  • Laser manufacturing technology for micro-processing (e.g. fast, precise structuring with ultrashort pulse lasers, joining of transparent plastics, multi-beam technology)
  • Modeling and simulation to optimize production processes and beam sources
  • Digital Photonic Production (including a low cost system for Selective Laser Melting)
  • Biofabrication (including 3D bioprinting)
