Holo/Or Presents “Industry Beam Shaping Bottlenecks” Workshop

Holo/Or Presents “Industry Beam Shaping Bottlenecks” Workshop

Time and Place for this workshop: June 24, 13:30-14:30, Hall B3, Booth #303

In the upcoming workshop during the Laser World of Photonics Exhibition in Munich, Mr. Jeffrey Fantl of Holo/Or will talk about beam shaping needs for industrial applications. The talk will focus on three popular laser applications where beam shaping is a major bottleneck:

  • Laser lift off for flexible and flat display processing
  • Laser glass cutting
  • Parallel laser line scribing

Laser Lift Off (LLO) is a major enabling technology in the production of flexible displays (OLED), flat panel displays and solar cells. The process requires high density, high uniformity UV energy over long lines, posing a major beam shaping challenge since most available lasers at these power levels are multi-mode and cannot be tightly focused.

Laser glass cutting is rapidly gaining market share in the glass cutting market. It is used in the manufacture of Smartphone screens, solar panels and many other consumer products. Laser cutting applications require tight focusing over long focal depths, requiring unique beam shaping approaches involving Bessel-like beams or multiple foci in the glass volume. Beam shaping is a major enabling technology for this application, determining rate, cut quality and thickness of material that can be processed.

Laser parallel line scribing is a widely used application of lasers in the micro-electronics and solar cell industries.  By utilizing beam shaping to create multiple parallel beams, it is possible to increase throughput significantly. Further beam shaping, such as flat-top shaping of each split beam, can be used to enhance process parameters and achieve sharp corners and well defined borders.

Mr. Fantl will review the main requirements of each laser application, the current state of the art of beam shaping solutions for these applications and the beam shaping development roadmap for these applications.

At the end of the workshop Mr. Fantl will answer your questions regarding the topics discussed or other beam shaping issues.
