Laser Structuring

Ablation of thin films

Precise, local ablation of thin layers of material is finding its way into many different areas of industrial production. Depending on the material the respectively suited laser is employed.Wavelength and pulse width are crucial factors. For plastics, the most commonly used lasers are CO2 or frequency converted solid-state lasers are used. Metals and semiconductors are processed with q-switched solid-state lasers in fundamental wavelength.
