European researchers are exploring how using laser structuring can alter and improve the properties of performance of metals. 

Laser for Mass Production of Functionalised Metallic Surfaces

LASER4SURF is an EU-funded research project aiming to remove technical and economic barriers that prevent the use of laser technologies for obtaining functionalized metallic surfaces with textures ~1μm or less on mass production. This objective will be achieved in particular by developing an integrated laser texturing prototype that comprises a laser texturing device, an in-line monitoring system and simulation tools. Three use cases will demonstrate an increased product performance: advanced batteries, linear encoders and medical components.

Eight organizations from five different countries have joined forces, bringing together the skills and resources necessary to achieve the goals of Laser4Surf.
