The Principles of Ablation

Considering the many types of materials involved in laser micro machining, selecting the most optimum laser can be a challenge. An understanding of material properties and laser characteristics are necessary for making the right selection. Laser micro machining is an ablation process. This means the material to be removed is […]

Introduction to Laser Micro Machining

Overview: Laser micro machining includes laser ablation, surface structuring of tough materials, and routing to create wave-guides. Materials suited for laser ablation include: ceramics, glasses, metals, polymers, and semiconductors. Typical laser micro machining is done with pulses with a duration of nanoseconds to picoseconds. Ultra-fast lasers have pulses shorter than […]
