EPIC Meeting on Surface Structuring at Laser World of Photonics

27 June 2019

Munich, Germany

Supported by


EPIC Meeting on Surface Structuring at Laser World of Photonics Munich will focus upon the key advantages that the technology brings to industry.The ever-evolving precise nature of photonics enables microscopic surface structuring on everyday materials. In turn, this enables new macroscopic features of materials such as hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, friction-reduction, anti-bacterial qualities and other unique possibilities. The laser source, beam delivery and material are all vital parts of the surface structuring process, and these will be discussed at this meeting.
