Surface Processing

Femtosecond laser structuring is a convenient technology to generate well-defined surfaces on virtually any solid material. Examples for femtosecond laser processed surfaces are deep black metals, increased emissivity, superhydrophilic metals or heterogeneous catalysts and electrodes with strongly enlarged specific surface areas.
