About D Y Patil Dental School

Laser Application Laboratory

Laser Application Laboratory (LAL) is a co-operation unit of the Departments of Material Science and Production Engineering.


LAL has been founded to:

Develop advanced education and research environment
Conduct research and technology transfer Form modern test and demonstration place for dental applications Laser scanning Advantages of laser For clinical application Soft tissue Hard tissue Photobiomodulation


Laser surface modifications
The biggest advantages of laser hardening are limited energy distribution and small distortions. Heat effect can be easily adjusted, which makes possible precise hardening patterns in depth and areas. Hardening of large 3-D areas (even 2 m2/h) is also possible.


Welding and other laser processes
Other laser processes like welding and cutting can also be tested at LAL or in one of our co-operation institutes. Technical application of lasers for  direct sintering steriolithography.
