Photonic Sensing for Smarter Processes

K-Project PSSP: 09/2018 - 08/2022 

The aim of the K project PSSP is to generate process knowledge with photonic methods which did not exist in this way before. The efficiency of production processes shall be significantly improved with these methods. Through specific research and development photonic methods can be applied before, but also directly in the production line. With the gained knowledge the process parameters, material and resources can be optimized.
