Material Processing

Materials Characterization

Nonlinear material analysis requires high intensity pulses. One can probe with short pulse of Mendocino system, or the highest pulse energy (up to 10 µJ) with the Cazadero

Micro Machining

Precise machining needs fast pulses and high energy. Lasers in our Mendocino line such as the FPL-05 is good for lesser energy applications. The Cazadero is ideal when you need the highest energies, up to 10 µJ at 100s of kHz repetition rate.

Material Processing

Fast lasers have the advantage of processing materials with less thermal effects. The higher power lasers such as the FPL-05 in our Mendocino line is good for lesser energy applications, and the Cazadero is perfect for the highest energies up to 10 µJ at 100s of kHz repetition rate.

UV Generation

A UV femtosecond pulsed laser is used for structure fabrication in many materials. Use of a 267 nm femtosecond light source has led to decrease in size of the achievable nanostructure down to 300 nm.

Short pulse UV lasers are also very useful for semiconductor inspection.

A short pulse Mendocino lasers at 1 µm wavelength with two optional Second Harmonic Generator systems can create the short wavelengths required. A fiber laser is reliable, maintenance free, low cost, and compact. Call for more information.

Semiconductor Manufacturing

Useful tools for semiconductor industry, such as fine trimming of masks could use high energy short pulse lasers. The lasers in our Mendocino line such as the FPL-05 is good for lesser energy applications. The Cazadero is ideal when you need the highest energies, up to 10 µJ at 100s of kHz repetition rate.

Solar

In the solar cell market, lasers are being used with increasing regularity. The majority of panels are made of crystalline silicon wafers, around 250um thick and measuring 6x6 inches. Femtosecond pulsed lasers are used for drilling, cutting, marking, scribing or soldering, due to lasers can offer the required accuracy. The laser process is non-contact and helps enable the wafers to be made thinner. The thinner wafers use much less silicon and cheaper. Thinner wafers are more electrically efficient and more brittle, but laser processing will not damage the wafer to ablate the circuit.
