Texturing/Structuring of Metal Surfaces

Lumos Laser's cutting-edge femtosecond laser technology offers unmatched precision in creating micro and nanostructures. Our GHz-Burst femtosecond pulses facilitate sophisticated texturing techniques such as Laser-Induced Periodic Surface Structures (LIPSS) and Direct Laser Interference Patterning (DLIP), providing a broad spectrum of patterned features on metal surfaces.

These surface structures significantly enhance the tribological properties of metals, contributing to increased efficiency and performance in applications, especially in the electric vehicle (EV) battery sector. By improving the electrode surface characteristics, our laser texturing methods promise to elevate battery efficiency and longevity, addressing some of the most critical challenges in EV technology.

The flexibility of our femtosecond lasers extends to a diverse range of materials, enabling applications beyond metals to include polymers, glass, ceramics, and plastics. Industries such as automotive, medical, electronics, and aviation benefit from this technology, which allows for precise, cost-effective, and high-throughput manufacturing processes.

Key Benefits:

  • Micro and nanostructuring capabilities with LIPSS and DLIP methods.
  • Improved tribological and functional surface properties.
  • Enhanced battery efficiency for EV applications.
  • Versatile material processing, including delicate substrates.
  • Non-contact, tool-free processing for cleaner results.
  • Cost-effective and uniform surface modifications at high speeds.
