Microdrilling of Sheet Materials with Femtosecond Laser Pulse Shaped by Computer Generated Hologram

By: Hayato Kawashima, Masahiro Yamaji, Jun’ichi Suzuki, Shuhei Tanaka We have developed a three-dimensional (3D) femtosecond laser processing method using a computer generated hologram (CGH) that generates a 3D structure inside transparent materials. Since 3D structure can be formed simultaneously with femtosecond laser pulses shaped by a CGH, our method is high efficient, and it […]

Carving Extremely Hard and Brittle Material with a Laser Beam

By: Dr. Lim Gnian Cher Laser is a potential tool for machining structural profiles on hard and brittle materials such as ceramics and carbides that traditional tools and methods find them near impossible to do.  EDM (electro-discharge machining) may be used for substrates that are conductive, such as tungsten carbide.  However, drilling small holes or […]
