Fraunhofer Group



Surface Technology and Photonics represent two core competencies of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the complexity lies in the importance of surface technology for the production of optical and optoelectronic components and products on the one hand, and the increasing importance of lasers for surface engineering and manufacturing and measurement procedures on the other.

Both are key technologies that are used with increasing technological advances in a variety of applications, such as production technology, optical sensors, and I&C technology in the field of biomedical engineering.

The core competences of the group include the development of coating systems and coating processes for a variety of applications, functionalization of surfaces, development of laser sources, development of micro-optical and precision mechanical systems, material processing and in optical measurement.
