        Research Overview 

Ultra-short laser microprocessing of biomaterials – Laser processing of innovative biomaterials; chemical, physical and mechanical characterization of the laser micro processed biomaterials; cells seeding and monitoring of their proliferation, migration, differentiation on thin films of biocompatible materials, 3D polymer scaffolds, and ceramics.

Ultra-short laser ablation of Biological tissue – Investigation of application of femtosecond pulses in dentistry by introducing a  minimally invasive concept for treatment of carious lesions.

Ultra-fast laser mass spectrometry of biological molecules - In our approach, we combine ultrashort laser ablation with time-of-flight mass spectroscopy (TOF-MS). Our work demonstrates the sensitivity of TOF-MS for the identification of the biomolecular species present in laser-ablated material from hard tissues. Performingfemtosecond laser ablation at 800nm altered the chemical composition of the ablated tissue and yielded the highest number of characteristic ions.
