Short-Pulse Laser Tested for Machining

Photonics Spectra
Mar 2001
Bloomfield, Conn.-based DeMaria ElectroOptics Systems Inc. has reported the development of a 150-ns CO2 laser system for the electronics packaging and materials processing markets. The company developed the laser for remote sensing applications and expects to commercialize it in the near term.

The system incorporates an electro-optic Q-switch and sealed CO2 waveguide technology. It produces pulse energies of 0.5 mJ and repetition rates of up to 100 kHz, which the company said translates into the ability to machine fine features without a heat-affected zone.
