KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany, Dec. 28, 2007 -- Lumera Laser GmbH said its new Hyper-Rapid pictosecond lasers represent a breakthrough in the development of industrial picosecond lasers for micromachining.

The lasers use a novel amplifier concept from Lumera Laser to reach higher average power for high throughput applications, the company said. With up to 50-W TEM00 average power and pulse-repetition rates of up to 1 MHz, the Hyper-Rapid lasers are now available for high-quality industrial micromachining applications.

Lumera said the throughput has increased by more than a factor of 10 over previously available models. Now more than 10mm³ of material can be abated coldly, without thermal side effects, no heat-effected zone, no cracks, no burr at the edges.

A picosecond (ps) laser beam can be focused to sub-µm diameter, and each controllable single ps pulse will remove gently only about a 10-nm layer of material, the company said.

Micromachining applications for Lumera's industrial ps lasers include:
  • Drilling small apertures or structures (for electrical, biomedical or fluidic devices) into difficult machinable materials
  • Rounding hard metal tool edges for better cutting quality and longer life
  • Cutting or repairing masks for processes in the semiconductor, display or OLED technology
  • Structuring solar cells
  • Making or repairing of lithographic masks
  • Fuse blowing for memory repair etc.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
