Beam-Shaping to Scale Up Micro-Processing

Many industrial micro-processing applications that use femtosecond lasers have been developed in a variety of sectors, including medical and semiconductors. To access new large-scale applications such as surface texturing, however, robust industrial-grade beam shaping solutions need to be combined with femtosecond lasers. Cailabs and Light Conversion have developed a partnership to demonstrate the quality and … Continue reading

OPCPA: From Concept to Ultrafast Future

The first proof-of-concept experiment on stretching, amplification, and compression of chirped pulses in an optical parametric amplifier (OPA) was demonstrated in 1992. This experiment was performed by a Vilnius University research group led by Light Conversion co-founder Prof. Algis Petras Piskarskas. In the 1970s Prof. Gérard Mourou and Prof. Donna Strickland invented a “method of … Continue reading

Lasers Induce Localized Cross-Linking Reactions in Non-Photosensitized Polymers

A research team has demonstrated that non-amplified femtosecond laser systems delivering 40–500 pJ individual pulses are sufficient for inducing localized cross-linking reactions within hundreds of nanometers in cross sections of non-photosensitized polymers. This experimental work is of high importance for the fundamental understanding of laser-enabled nanoscale 3D additive manufacturing. This research also widens the technology’s field of applications where … Continue reading
