Stefan Nolte (Institut of Applied Physics & Fraunhofer IOF) and Dr. sc. nat. Dirk Sutter (TRUMPF Laser GmbH + Co. KG, Schramberg), with their project "Ultra-short pulse lasers for industrial mass production - manufacturing with light flashes".

Together, they developed tools based on lasers that emit light in the form of high-energy laser pulses no more than a billionth of a second in duration. They allow extremely precise and reliable machining of material using lasers. The technology is already being used to manufacture many different high-tech products.
