General goal of this experiment is the assessment of the newest generation of galvoscanners for laser micromachining with ultrashort pulses at high average powers.
The three applications are:
- The generation high precision structures with small dimensions in tempered steel and silicon. The sample applications are microstructures in the nozzles for spray forming and the machining of silicon for MEMS applications.
- The re-opening of blocked cooling holes in turbine blades.
- The high-speed generation of large-area hydrophobic surface textures on steel, metal films and ceramics.
