Main research goals of LTT Erlangen are a comprehensive understanding and practical improvement of processes in energy and process engineering, including spray and combustion processes and (nano-)particle formation. A methodological focus of the LTT is the development and application of optical, mostly laser-based measurement techniques. These are also increasingly applied to other fields such as pharmaceutical and polymer technology technology. Also, tomographic procedures and advanced methods of data analysis (e.g. Bayesian statistics, principal component analysis) are used. In all research areas, close cooperation exists with national and international partners from science and industry. The LTT is, among others, integrated in institutions founded in the frame of the Excellence Initiative, namely the Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) and the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM)
