Awards & Nominations

Inspired by nature

After 10 years of joint and intensive cooperation between the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS and the Technical University of Dresden, we offer a unique solution to improve the surface performance of products, applications and components using our new standard: DLIP - Direct Laser Interference Patterning.

Our engineered solution is inspired by natural surfaces such as the lotus leaf, sharkskin, collembola and morpho butterfly, which allows for advanced surface features such as self-cleaning, anti-icing, antibacterial, decoration, drag reduction and more. We transfer these diverse effects to technical surfaces through laser-based surface functionalization.

 

Industrial applications

Aerospace

The use of laser-based functional surfaces can lead to numerous advantages and cost savings in the aerospace industry. These include improved anti-icing behavior, reduced energy consumption for de-icing and reduced noise pollution.

Instead of coating or foiling surfaces as before, functional microstructures can be textured directly into the surface using a laser. 

In this way, time-consuming maintenance work and expensive new purchases can be avoided.

Automotive industry

There are numerous savings and improvement potentials in the automotive industry.

Reduced friction between surfaces, reduced wear, longer lubricant life, or reduced contact resistance between electrical connectors are just some of the benefits of our DLIP method.

This means that established, cost-intensive or complex process steps can be partially replaced.

Medical technology

There is huge potential in medical technology. 

Healing times, quality of life and well-being can be decisively improved through improved biocompatibility of implants, tailor-made wettability, non-stick effects and antibacterial functionalities.

In addition, the surface improvement of medical components reduces costs in the long term.

More applications

Our functionalized surfaces are also widely used in other areas such as energy generation, production processes and in the consumer sector. 

The topics of glass finishing, cost reduction in mechanical manufacturing processes, resistance to environmental influences and increased performance of energy systems play a major role here.
