Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V.
The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. is the world's leading research institute in the field of nano-fabrication using ultrafast lasers. The main focus of its activities in the field of nanoscience lies in 3D nanostructures, systems for 3D nanomanufacturing, plasmonics, nano-composites, nano-biomaterials, and nanoparticles.
The following nano products and services are available:
- 2D and 3D nanostructures
- systems for 2D and 3D nanofabrication
- biocompatible nanomaterials
- micro and nanostructured implants
- nanoparticles of any material in a wide range of solvents
The nanotechnology department has a world-renowned expertise in the field of rapid nanoprototyping and is one of the most respected industry-oriented research facilities in this area. The focus of its current work lies in the application of advanced laser systems for the production of two- and three-dimensional micro- and nanostructures. To master the many challenges of nanomanufacturing technology, advanced system solutions have been developed. Complex laser systems for the production of nanostructures are developed in one of the focus groups, where novel production methods are also refined and established. Another activity is the manufacture of components for plasmonics and metamaterials by nonlin-ear 2D/3D laser lithography and their characterization. A number of ablation-based procedures and laser-induced transfer of inorganic and organic materials exist for the realization of 3D struc-tures and biological nanoparticles.
