The Services include the departments administration and technical services as well as the group training and education/ IT and the marketing & communications team.
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 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.
One of the main challenges of our times is to use limited resources efficiently. And the decisive factor for automobile construction of the future is to reduce the weight of the car. The Volkswagen AG is working together with the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and other partners on developing an innovative laser process for automated cutting of CFRP components, to make it possible to use this lightweight material for mass production.
The Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH e.V.) is currently active in a project dealing with the tomographic monitoring of 3-D cell cultures consisting of pluripotent stem cells (hPSC).
At the workshop „Laser Processing of Glass Materials”, which will be held at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) in November, the main topics to be covered are relevant beam source developments, joining, cutting and functionalization, as well as machine technology. The workshop will be organized by the LZH together with the Bayerisches Laserzentrum gGmbH.
