Paper Abstract

Surface structuring with ultrashort laser pulses provides the flexibility to generate micro- and nano-sized structures in desired patterns on metal surfaces - also on non-flat objects. The structures largely preserve the strength of the native material, since they are formed with minimal thermal effects on the surrounding regions. This talk will demonstrate the capabilities with and flexibility of short-pulse surface structuring. Recent results encompass tailoring material surfaces for optimal adhesion in specific industrially important applications and laser structuring of medical implant surfaces to improve their biocompatibility.
