Surface laser structuring
We structure surfaces with various laser systems. The changed topology can be as fine as an optical grating (in the nanometer range) or “larger” in the micrometer range. Such structures manipulate light waves but also liquid flow and wettability of surfaces.
Applications range from improved cell adherence for implants to completely non-wetting surfaces, with extremely low particle and cell adsorption.e
THE STRUCTURING OF SURFACES WITH ULTRASHORT LASER PULSES IS A FASCINATING TECHNIQUE TO MODULATE THE SURFACE PHYSICS AND SURFACE CHEMISTRY OF MATERIALS.
COMPLETELY NON-WETTING SURFACES REPELL PARTICLES AND CELLS. SURFACE CLEANLINESS AND HYGIENE GET NEWLY DEFINED.
DIFFERENT STRUCTURES ENABLE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT: IMPROVED ADHERENCE OF CELLS, LEADING TO BETTER INTEGRATED IMPLANTS.
WE DEVELOP LASER STRUCTURED SURFACES, OPTIMIZE THE PROCESS, SCALE UP FOR INDUSTRIALIZATION.
Completely non- wetting
We laser-structure surfaces that they become super- hydrophobic.
No liquid adhesion. No particle adhesion. No cell adhesion.
Liquid manipulation and wetting
We structure with pure laser light.
The clean alternative to micro powder blasting. Pixel precise control over the surface structure.
