Laserlab-Europe Talk: "Towards sustainability by applications of laser processing" on 31 January 2024

We are pleased to announce the next Laserlab-Europe Talk:
Juraj Sládek (HiLASE, Czech Republic) will present ‘Towards sustainability by applications of laser processing’.

Laser material processing, aside from cutting and welding applications, is also applicable for advanced surface modification of a broad range of materials, most of which are the well recyclable ones (eg. metal, glass, plastic). This includes surface functionalization to achieve superhydrophobic, self-cleaning or passive antibacterial surfaces, reduced friction and wear of metallic components, increased surface area for battery electrodes and more. In addition, a technique of Laser Shock Peening (LSP) is used to extend lifespan of mechanical components. Many of these methods can help us to improve functionality of products with an impact beneficial to the environment. In this talk, several laser processing applications will be discussed and demonstrated on use cases.

Speaker: Juraj Sládek (HiLASE, Czech Republic)
Title: Towards sustainability by applications of laser processing

The Laserlab-Europe Talks consist of a series of online seminars and panel discussions proposed and organised by our community on specific topics (thematic or research-specific) and provide a platform for regular information exchange and knowledge sharing.

The talks take place on a Wednesday afternoon each month and are open to all interested parties, from PhD students to experts in the field and industrial and medical partners as appropriate.

Previous Talks can be watched on the Laserlab-Europe YouTube channel.
