Glass and polymers are important materials in consumer electronics, automotive, medical device manufacturing, and many other industries. For mobile phones, advancements such as flexible and foldable displays, multi-camera arrays, under-display cameras, and fingerprint sensors are just a sampling of features available now or on the horizon. Behind such novelties are advanced manufacturing processes that require new materials, tools, and techniques; and increasingly, the tools and techniques involve ultrashort pulse lasers for high quality, precision processing. Jim Bovatsek shares recent developments in ultrashort pulse laser cutting of glass and multi-layer polymer stacks, as well as advancements in the micro-welding of glass to glass and metal.
