    Surface hardening with high power diode lasers has been developed to an industrial accepted process in the last years. The multiple adoption of this complex process in the industrial environment make great demands on process control, safety und simplification. To meet these demands a special camera based monitoring system has been developed. This system is able to monitor many laser beam characteristics during the hardening process online, which creates new options regarding the process quality control. Furthermore typical commercial high power laser deliver two different wavelength superposed to one beam. For a proper verification of the beam characteristics the system can measure each wavelength separately in real time. It is possible to acquire and control laser beam shaping for example by a scanning system. As sensor a low cost camera is used. All parameters like accuracy, resolution and the measured spectrum are adaptable to the specific requirements. The system can be integrated very easily in existing hardening systems controlled by software. The state of the development of this system is demonstrated on typical applications.

    Presented at PICALO 2006

    Microchannels are fabricated in a poly(methyl methacrylate) substrate by high repetition rate, nanojoule femtosecond laser pulses. Microchannels with diameters of 8 - 15 m can be fabricated at a wavelength of 750 nm and a fabrication speed of 800 m/s using 80 fs pulses at a repetition rate of 80 MHz with energy of 0.9 nJ/pulse. The size and shape of the microchannels can be controlled by changing the fabrication parameters of speed, the number o...

    Presented at PICALO 2006

    Majority of applications in electronics, medical devices industry requires micro joining of dissimilar materials. In principle, a laser can weld any material, which can be joined by conventional processes. In the welding of dissimilar metals, good solid solubility is essential for sound weld properties. The trends of joining dissimilar metals and miniaturisation of components are offering high challenges for welding methods. The weldability of dissimilar metals depends on many different factors. The physical properties have a high influence on the...

    Presented at PICALO 2006

    Along with the trends of the product minimization, wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP) has become a new solution to advanced packaging. Formation of micro-vias with desired patterns is a critical process step. Currently micro-vias are achieved through photolithographic technology, which is lengthy, time-consuming and costly. In order to improve the productivity and reduce the cost of the via formation process, it is critical to develop a simpler and more cost-effective drilling technology. The successfu...

    We report two methods of fabricating waveguides in photosensitive Ag+ doped Foturan glass by femtosecond (fs) laser writing and subsequent annealing. The first method, which involved writing at laser energy higher than the optical breakdown threshold, resulted in microstructural changes and a refractive index increase. In contrast, the ...

    Periodically poled materials continue to be of great interest due to their applications in both bulk nonlinear optics and all-optical processing systems. Many groups continue to explore alternative techniques to lithographic surface electrodes for defining the domain pattern. The key objectives of these studies are to reduce the minimum domain size, produce uniformity in the domain structures and improve the cost effectiveness and speed of fabrication. We report progress on an...

    Smooth void dots and void channels have been generated efficiently in some low refractive index materials such as polymers and glasses by use of a femtosecond laser induced microexplosion method and have been used to fabricate 3D photonic crystals. In order to get complete bandgap, a high refractive index material need to be used. Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) crystal is a good candidate because o...
