For the second time since 2013, a research group with the participation of our parent company TRUMPF has won the German Future Prize (Deutscher Zukunftspreis). The renowned prize was awarded by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on 25 November 2020 in Berlin. We are pleased that TRUMPF, together with the ZEISS Group and the Fraunhofer IOF Institute, has been selected from a strong field of applicants. TRUMPF herewith repeats its impressive innovation leadership in the high-tech sector. The new EUV lithography is a manufacturing technology with enormous potential in the production of state-of-the-art smartphones and in the field of automated driving. Particularly a high-power laser that works with extremely ultraviolet light (so called “EUV”) is relevant in this case, i.e. with an extremely short wavelength.
