Underwater Technology Group

  • System technology for underwater applications

  • Laser material processing underwater

  • Measurement and analysis technology underwater


The main focus of the work of the Underwater Technology Group is the use of laser technology underwater. One of the main application areas is material processing, for example laser cutting of steel, which can be used among other things for repairs or dismantling. Further, the group is concerned with measurement and analysis technology. One area to be mentioned is laser-based material analysis (laser-induced plasma spectroscopy, LIBS), for the analysis of raw materials in deep-sea areas.
