Nature shows how special nano- and micrometer-sized features can render surfaces hydrophobic or anti-bacterial. Laser-based texturing is a technique capable of imitating this and functionalizing surfaces without the use of additives. EU-funded projects, such as LAMpAS, aim at achieving high throughputs with systems based on kW-level, short and ultrashort-pulsed lasers, enabling this technology for the competitive manufacturing and commercialization of domestic appliances with new features and fast-moving consumer products.
