SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2013 — Spectra-Physics, Innovative Laser Technologies (ILT) and Palmaz Scientific have demonstrated femtosecond laser micromachining of next-generation implantable medical devices, the companies said Thursday.

Using Spectra-Physics’ Spirit industrial femtosecond laser and ILT’s VersaSTC precision machining system, Palmaz Scientific demonstrated the fabrication of leading-edge implantable stents with extremely fine and advanced surface nanotechnologies for exceptional biocompatibility, the companies said.

The partners worked closely to jointly develop a customized system to take advantage of Palmaz’s proprietary and disruptive technologies, they said. The new laser system successfully showed that it was capable of maintaining the precise tolerances necessary for the very fine structures.

The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
