Business Development & Communications
The field of activities of is divided into the Training and Education Group and the Communications Group
Laser Development Department
The Laser Development Department concentrates on the development of laser sources for a variety of applications.
Production and systems
The core competencies of the department are laser-based solutions for industrial fields
The main work of the department is in the development of new technologies for the generation of micro- and nano-structured objects ...
The roots of the Laser Component Department go back to the beginning of the 70s
The Biomedical Optics department (more information available here) combines the use of lasers for imaging, laser surgery, and cell and tissue manipulation.
Materials and Processes
The interaction between the laser beam with mainly metal materials from basic research to industrial contract research
Welcome to the LZH
As an independent non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) stands for innovative research, development and consulting. The focus of our applied research in the field of photonic technologies is on:
- Optical components and systems
- Optical production technologies
- Biomedical photonics
Interdisciplinarity is thereby strongly emphasized since the foundation 1986 and is the basis of the excellent work at the LZH. As a reliable partner of the industry, we constantly focus on the customer benefit und use
“Light for innovation”.
In an EU project under the leadership of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), passive and active protective systems for jackets, trousers, aprons and gloves are being developed. This clothing offers effective protection against laser radiation with output densities of up to 20 Megawatts per square meter.
Under the motto „Solutions for your Market“, the LZH will be showing their competence from the areas of precise laser components, innovative laser systems, laser precision processing and interesting applications for laser-based manufacturing technology.
Scientists use a trick to make the slightest strain on parts of a tooling machine visible. They can measure stress on the fly, or recognize a dull cutting tool at an early stage. The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will show how this stress gauge works at this year’s Hannover Messe, from April 8th to 12th.
