Short Pulse Duration
Pico and Femto Lasers
Extreme short pulse duration lasers in the Pico and Femto are the preferred lasers for non-thermal material processing. These lasers are the preferred choice for micro and nano-scale fabrication, since they will not impact the surrounding area.
Short Pulse Duration lasers are an excellent choice for high-speed, larger scale marking, drilling, and patterning. Applications for this laser are microhole drilling, microfluidics, subsurface marking, and MEMS. These lasers are suitable for materials that are hard or impossible to ablate without damage to the material, such as clear, hard and brittle materials. Diamond, glass, quartz, sapphire, and all polymers, are just a few examples for ideal use with short pulse duration.
