The extremely short duration and high peak intensity of femtosecond lasers enables processing of any kind of material, even transparent materials, where light would not normally be absorbed.  These materials include glass, diamond, sapphire, polymers, and thin/thick layer coatings.  The femtosecond laser pulses are also ideal for processing light absorbing materials, such as metals, opaque polymers, and semiconductors.  In both cases, material ablation occurs with minimal HAZ (heat affected zone) enabling production of accurately clean cut edges without the need for a post process.   High-precision, micro-machined parts can be generated with IMRA’s FCPA DE and DX Series laser sources, as the examples below show.
