Surfaces modified with ultrafast lasers could replace coatings and paints

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers are part of a team headed by Northrop Grumman that has received a $9.2m grant from the US Department of Defense. The goal of the research is to create smaller, scalable 3D stacks of chips and heat transfer technologies that will help regulate thermal management in those structures (Image: Center for Electro-optics and Functionalized Surfaces, University of Nebraska-Lincoln)

A first-of-its-kind femtosecond laser from Amplitude in the US is helping to scale a technique to functionalise metal surfaces, creating permanent properties tailored to each end application
