The manufacturing sector faces two daunting problems in all projects. For one, the sophistication of modern devices is rapidly increasing. With greater resolution and density of materials, the scale of applications is now approaching proportions that are inconsistent with more conventional processing technologies.
In addition, new medical implants, high-resolution displays, or high-density semiconductors exceedingly use varying and complicated materials such as glass, organic polymers, copper, or ceramics. Such components are very complex to tackle, and even state-of-the-art lasers have now exceeded their limits.
In the last decade, ultrashort-pulse (USP) lasers have allowed the industry to keep up with the demand for ever-increasing resolution and smaller features and the growing complexity of newer devices. Such lasers focus output energy in a relatively short timeframe, usually in the femtosecond micromachining to low picosecond regime, and produce an exceptionally high optical intensity. The fundamentally different aspect of the laser-matter interaction method offers two main benefits that are ideally tailored to industrial requirements.
Compared to conventional machining, the duration of the USP and the very heavy intensity on the target results in a total ionization of the irradiated volume by nonlinear effects. As the pulse duration is lower than the heat diffusion time, the component is expelled before any heat diffusion or thermal damage can occur, resulting in excellent processing efficiency.
Nevertheless, owing to the extremely high optical power, practically any material can be treated using USP lasers, thereby overcoming previously unworkable manufacturing problems. Such lasers are now a crucial part of critical industrial and medical applications. They produce surgical devices, allow advancement in modern smartphones, and can even be used for micro-welding of glass and ceramics.
