goals

The students will learn about the basics of the different processing methods. They should be able to estimate benefits and limitations of the different methods and to compare them with conventional production techniques.

content

First of all the principles of different high power lasers and their suitability for material processing are treated. Then the guiding and forming devices for laser beams are discussed. The properties of laser beams and material surfaces are discussed in own chapters. The following chapters include the interaction between laser beam and material as well as the different processing methods e.g. cutting, welding, surface treating and marking. The last two chapters contain an overview about laser safety and an introduction in laser applications in medical engineering.
