Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum (SLT)

Institut für Strahlwerkzeuge (IFSW)

The Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum which takes place on a biennial cycle is aimed at knowledge transfer and is recognized as an essential international user forum of the laser branch.

SLT 2024 - Call for Papers


The 12th Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum (SLT) serves as a platform for knowledge transfer between academia and industry. The talks given by international experts from research and development provide a profound overview over the actual trends in laser technology. In particular, the SLT provides an insight in the corresponding fundamentals with respect to future applications. This is complemented by presentations from the industries which document the actual state of innovation transfer. At the SLT 2024, we seek contributions with a high degree of novelty and scientific excellence to enhance our understanding and the application of laser technology.
