Laser Material Processing Laboratory
ABOUT LaMPThe Laser Materials Processing Laboratory (LaMP), part of the CETAL center, supports both fundamental research and industry collaborations. The group focuses on laser processing of various materials (polymers, glasses, ceramics, metals, composites) at macro-, micro- and nanometer scale. The main interests of the group lie in laser 3D printing of metallic materials, 3D printing of polymers at nanoscale, laser cladding, laser welding, laser cutting and marking. We materialize the fundamental research in scientific papers, patent claims and national and international collaborations in the framework of various projects. Our research produces cutting edge technologies for the industrial sector. We work with our partners on technological transfer of technologies developed in CETAL for laser cladding and laser welding.
Mission and strategy
Our mission is to develop new laser-based techniques for material processing at macro-, micro- and nano-scale and to transfer the laser technologies to the industrial environment. Our strategy relies on fundamental research within the framework of publically sponsored projects, emerging in laser technologies for applications oriented towards industrial entities. Our facilities provide access for researchers and industrial partners to the newest available laser technologies for materials processing. We are also heavily focused on education and partnerships with scholar entities. We collaborate with Romanian and foreign Universities for training and internships of students for diploma projects, dissertations and PhD theses. We regularly participate to technical expos and scientific fares such as Researcher’s night, SciFi Fest, Metal Show, Alternative School for Creative Thinking.
The main directions of the laboratory are:
- Laser macro-processing for industrial applications: cutting, drilling, welding, marking, surface structuring, cladding.
- 3D printing of polymeric, metallic and composite objects in the micron to meter range. Enhanced topology design
- Laser micro- and nano-processing for fabrications of microfluidics, micro-optics, metamaterials.
- Photonic processing of biomaterials for tissue engineering, fabrication of bio-nano-materials.
