Abstract
With the beginning of the new century the German federal government started the funding of a program intended to exploit the potential of femtosecond technology. In a foregoing competition, five research consortia had been successful and have started their investigations in the following fields. - micro-machining of technical materials for microstructure and drilling - medical therapy in : ophthalmology, dentistry, neurology and ear surgery - metrology - laser safety. Lasers, systems and technologies required in these potential fields of applications will be investigated. The program aims at industrial success and is dominated by industrial partners, therefore. The more fundamental research is done in university institutes and research centers.
