What are Ultrafast Lasers?

Ultrafast lasers produce extremely short pulses of light; usually on the order of pico- or femtoseconds. Relying on techniques such as mode locking to create a train of pulses, ultrafast lasers owe their recent success to relatively new developments in photonics. These advancements in laser technology enable the production of pulses ranging between a few … Continue reading

AL50 Q-Switched CO2 Laser

Whether ablating, cutting, perforating or marking, the highest precision in micro-material processing starts with the right beam source. The Access Laser AL50Q is a compact RF-excited, INVAR-stabilized, fully sealed CO2 waveguide laser that is Q-switched with an acoustic-optical modulator (AOM). This results in outstanding pulse characteristics with high peak powers of 2.5 kW, 200 ns … Continue reading

High Precision Processing of Flexible or Thick Glass

Processing (cutting or micro-structuring) tempered or non-tempered, flexible or thick glass with high precision can be a challenging task. Mesh glass wafers and wafers for wafer-level-packaging (WLP) require various shapes of through-holes with high aspect ratio channels in the same wafer. Femtosecond lasers are perfect for both selective laser etching (SLE) and 5-axis drilling heads. … Continue reading
