More than 30 institutes at the University of Stuttgart are participating in the nationwide Girls' Day and are preparing workshops and online events, including the Institut für Strahlwerkzeuge (IFSW) with the exciting topic "The laser as a tool of the future".
The applications of laser beams are as diverse as the colors in the rainbow. But all laser beams have one thing in common. Interested young girls of the grades 9 and 10 will learn what that is. On 22 April the IFSW will offer an online visit to its laboratories and provide exciting insights into the work of female engineering scientists. Among other things, they will explain what the laser can do, how laser beams are used and how it is possible to look inside the material.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Graf, director of the IFSW, is looking forward to a lively participation on the Girls' Day. He is convinced that the laser is already an outstanding, universal tool but that we are still far from exploiting its full potential. The realization of a universal laser machine is therefore a declared goal of the ongoing research.
The registration for the IFSW online workshop is now open at:
