Research Field Photonic Technologies: Courses
The entire overview of our courses can be found listed in table form under the following link: Course Table .
In the following we would like to briefly introduce some of these courses:
The lecture Laser Technology, opens an external URL in a new window is intended to enable students to understand the fundamentals and interrelationships that lead to the generation of laser radiation. In addition, after completing the lecture, they will be able to describe the properties of laser radiation, as well as to evaluate different methods of beam guidance and the interaction of laser light with matter.
The lecture Laser Processing Technology, opens an external URL in a new window enables students to understand the basics of different laser material processing methods and to assess their potential for use in industrial manufacturing, as well as to recognize advantages and disadvantages of laser material processing and to evaluate possible applications.
The Precision Machining, opens an external URL in a new window lecture enables students to formulate the requirements for laser equipment for precision machining and to describe in detail special laser sources, such as excimer, solid-state and ultrashort pulse lasers, as well as to understand special features of machining with short and ultrashort laser pulses.
The lectures Joining of Special Materials with Special Processes Part 1, opens an external URL in a new window and Joining of Special Materials with Special Processes Part 2, opens an external URL in a new window allow students to learn about various topics from the IWE training. These include laser beam and plasma welding, friction stir welding, electromagnetic pulse welding, explosion welding and similar processes. Furthermore, the characteristics of various special materials are discussed. If possible, selected processes will be presented during field trips.
The lecture Basics of Laser Technology, opens an external URL in a new window enables students to evaluate applications of lasers in production, as well as to understand basics of the generation of laser light.
The lecture and exercise Modeling and Simulation in Production Technology, opens an external URL in a new window introduces students to the basics of FE modeling and teaches them how to use FE models for simulation in various tasks, such as mechanics, heat conduction as well as in coupled thermomechanical problems.
In the Laboratory, opens an external URL in a new window exercises Laser Technology, students will be introduced to experimental work with different laser sources (CO2, fiber, etc.) and successfully perform simple cutting and welding tasks themselves, using CNC traversing equipment and robots.
In the Laser Systems, opens an external URL in a new window seminar, students learn to research and analyze the literature required for their work in the relevant scientific databases, as well as to independently research, work on, present and document a specific task.
