A-01: Integrated femtosecond laser technology for therapeutic application in corneal surgery

The goal of the project is to set up and conduct research into an ultraviolet femtosecond laser for corneal surgery. With this device, it should then be possible to correct defective vision in the human eye with much greater precision. The technical objective is to develop a laser system with an ultraviolet wavelength of 345 nm. The device will enable tissue ablation for the purpose of refractive correction, a procedure not possible with a sufficient degree of precision using existing methods.
