Hannover, Germany – Congratulations are in order on the 25th anniversary of the founding of Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), a research organization that has stood for qualified, interdisciplinary science with a high transfer potential.

At the June 15th celebration, the Prime Minister of Lower Saxony, David McAllister, emphasized the role of the institute as an important cornerstone in the field of laser technology research, both in Germany and internationally.

Over the last quarter of a century, the institute has been an important factor both in establishing the laser as a key technology in Hannover and Lower Saxony, and in introducing laser technology to production and manufacturing. Additionally, in this period, approximately 4000 workers and technicians have taken part in special training courses.

The success of the LZH started with the three visionary founding fathers, Professors Haferkamp, Tönshoff and Welling, who recognized the special chance being offered to transdisciplinary cooperation in the fields of physics and engineering. In the future, the main areas of research of the LZH will be in areas of global challenges such as energy, security, mobility, communications, and life sciences.
