OPTEC Femtosecond Laser Micro-machining System Installation Presentation
Aurelie Parlier from Optic Laser Group will discuss Athermal Processing using the Optec LSV-Flex. Followed by a show and tell with the newly installed system.
The Optec LSV-Flex Micro-machining Laser System uses a femto-second laser to process practically any material through ultra-short laser pulse photo-ablation. The ultra-short laser pulse is effective on polymers, metal, glasses, single crystals, and polymorphic crystals. Materials are ionized by the laser pulse and removed from the surface in a plasma cloud, leaving a clean surface at the interaction site. Contrary to typical thermal laser operations, the femto-second laser is not as sensitive to wavelength absorption and therefore offers minimum thermal, creating a no Heat-Affected-Zone on the part.
The Optec software allows coordinated moves between the galvo scanning 6µm spot head and the stage to create patterns that are uninterrupted over the entire stage area with a precision of 2µm. The LSV-FLEX system is equipped with HD zoom video microscope for alignment and inspection, 300 x 300 mm sub-micron resolution XY stages with vacuum chuck, high-speed scan head with infinite-field-of-view (IFOV) stage, Bessel Module, integrated industrial PC with many other standard and optional features. This will be ideal for microfluidics and photonics applications as well as material removal. The system allows material surface modifications to increase both hydroscopic and hydrophilic characteristics.
