Since 2012, the Technische Universität Dresden and Fraunhofer IWS are organizing the International Summer School “Trends and new developments in Laser Technology“, which is dictated during the last august week every year. This five days event aims to bring together undergraduate and PhD students in an intensive study program on fundamental and applied aspects of laser technology.

The Summer School program consists of lectures by renowned experts and informal discussion sessions, as well as practical in­sights. The program also offers participants the opportunity to present their own research topics and aims to facilitate the exchange of new ideas in these areas.


• Surface hardening technologies

• High speed 2D laser cutting

• Laser welding

• Additive manufacturing processes

• Applications of ultra short pulsed lasers

• Laser process simulation

• Laser micro/nano structuring

• Laser interference patterning

The programme also includes:

• Participant presentations (15 minutes)

• Proceeding book with extended abstracts

• Documentation about the principal lessons 

Target Audience: Engineers, Undergraduate students, PhD candidates

Language: English
