SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2015 — The Rapid FX femtosecond laser from Coherent Inc. is designed for precision micromachining of metal, glass, sapphire, ceramic and other dielectric materials.
The solid-state laser delivers 900-fs pulsewidths with pulse energies up to 100 μJ at a repetition rate of 100 kHz and optional operation up to 200 kHz. A beam quality (M2) of <1.4 is featured with pulse-on-demand operation. High-energy femtosecond pulses enable the production of microscale features with virtually no heat-affected zone and without sacrificing processing speed.
Applications include the drilling of holes in automotive fuel injector nozzles, glass and sapphire scribing for display and smartphone manufacturing, and precision structuring of medical implants.
