Use of Ultrafast Lasers in Low-Heat Processes
Dr. Andreas Oehler

Due to the ongoing debate between the requirements for edge quality versus the need for economic throughput of laser-based micromachining, the promise of cold ablation is often compromised by the need for faster laser processing. In this session, we will discuss laser processing of key materials used in medical and display applications from polymers to ceramics, and demonstrate how ultrafast lasers can eliminate heat effects.
