Workshop of Photonics has a long-term experience in femtosecond laser surface micro-structuring.
Free from thermal effects pulses enable the creation of precise structures for desired applications.
A large variety of nano- and micro-scale structures can be controllably produced on diverse metallic and transparent materials using direct femtosecond laser processing techniques.
Laser surface structuring can be used to enhance various properties of surfaces or even induce new properties that material does not possess by itself, for example:
By using a femtosecond laser, surface structuring can be performed on a variety of transparent materials.
The method is based on a very short pulse duration and large laser peak fluence. It allows structuring almost all classes of materials with ultra-high precision and without the occurrence of noticeable heat-affected zones.
Femtosecond laser custom made fiber tips allow to provide optimum control over beam delivery and/or increased efficiency of light collection.
Shaped optical fiber tips can be used in applications such as optical sensing and remote laser surgery, also for other applications by controlling the angle of light leaving the fiber or directing it to the side. It provides advantages of enhanced beam control, optical system robustness, and stability, also economical advantages.
Our fiber processing expertise allows us to produce specially designed shaped tip fibers. We manage industry-leading fiber processing technology and experience.
Selective laser ablation is one of the most common industrial lasers applications today.
It ensures high processing speed and high quality of a processed area.
Small portions of metal layers can be precisely removed without any damage to the substrate using femtosecond laser pulses. The depth and geometry of ablation may vary; therefore, it is suitable for a variety of applications.
Hard materials ablation (e.g. polycrystalline diamond (PCD) and sapphire) is a challenging task even for lasers.
But it can be managed by using a femtosecond laser that overcomes not only the hardness of materials but also very high thermal conductivity, which allows us to avoid burned regions, that may appear if other methods are used.
