LAwave User Meeting

LAwave technology is used for fast and non-destructive mechanical characterization of coatings and surfaces. It can be used for wafer processing, PVD and CVD coatings, as well with thermal spray coatings, laser cladding and Additive Manufacturing. Applications are found in research and development, quality control of coating processes and in academic research.

The LAwave User Meeting is a virtual meeting that for the first time will bring together experts from the coating and material science community that are already benefitting from the LAwave technology and those who are interested in it. Scientific work and various applications will be presented and questions and requirements regarding the instrument are discussed.


  • Applications in research and development
  • Application for quality control
  • Best practice measurement and evaluation
  • Correlation to other techniques and/or application behavior
  • Advanced evaluation
  • Future developments


  • Semiconductor processing
  • ALD, CVD and PVD coatings
  • Thermal spraying, laser cladding
  • Case hardening, nitriding
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Surface treatment
  • Others

To accommodate the world-wide user community, two sessions with independent contributions will be held.

LAwave User Meeting
Online / 26-27 November 2024
Participation is free of charge.
