As of July 1st, 2019, Dr.-Ing. Peter Jäschke will be heading the Production and Systems Department of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). He thus succeeds Dr.-Ing. Oliver Suttmann, who will be working in industry.

Dr.-Ing. Peter Jäschke has been working at the LZH for already 20 years and took over the leadership of the Composites Group of the Production and Systems Department in 2011. He studied physics at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg and obtained his doctorate degree (Dr.-Ing.) from the Leibniz Universität Hannover for his PhD thesis on "Laser transmission welding of continuously carbon-reinforced TPF plastics and thermoplastic polymers" in 2012. His main research areas are the processing of plastics and fiber composites.

The Composites Group will now be led by Dipl.-Ing. Verena Wippo, who has been working in the group as a scientific employee since 2011.

Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH)

As an independent, non-profit research institute, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) stands for innovative research, development and consulting. The LZH is supported by the Niedersachsen Ministry of Economic Affairs, Employment, Transport and Digitalisation and is dedicated to the selfless promotion of applied research in the field of photonics and laser technology. Founded in 1986, over 170 employees are now working for the LZH.

The focus of the LZH lies on the fields of optical components and systems, optical production technologies, and biomedical photonics. Interdisciplinary cooperation between natural scientists and mechanical engineers makes innovative approaches to challenges from the most different areas possible: from the development of components for specific laser systems to process developments for the most diverse laser applications, for example for medical technology or lightweight construction in the automotive sector. Eighteen spin off companies have emerged from the LZH up to now. Thus, the LZH has created a strong transfer between fundamental science, application oriented research, and industry.
