Four distinct laser types are suitable for microwelding: pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG); continuous-wave (CW) ytterbium-doped fiber; quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) fiber; and nanosecond pulsed fiber. Each laser offers unique features that work best for specific applications. In some cases, several options may be viable, but considerations for cost of ownership and serviceability often dictate the optimal laser choice. CW lasers are simply turned off and on as needed but can be modulated by electrically driving the current to the diodes to provide pulsed output....Read full article
