  • PICALO 2008 Paper #M105 (Direct Measurement of Temperature Distribution in Silicon by Ultrashort Laser Pulses)

    Direct Measurement of Temperature Distribution in Silicon by Ultrashort Laser Pulses
    Authors:
    Hong Yu Zheng, Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology; Singapore Singapore
    Y.C. Lam, Nanyang University ; Singapore Singapore
    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Femtosecond (fs) laser has been demonstrated as a high precision micromachining tool for materials processing because of its advantages of reduced thermal damage to the concerned substrate compared to long-pulsed lasers. It is often believed that most of the absorbed laser energy is carried away by the ablated material, leaving negligible amounts of thermal energy dissipated into the bulk of the remaining material. In contrast, pr...

    Fundamental Issues Concerning Material Removal by Laser Irradiation of Insulating Materials (Invited Paper)
    Authors:
    Tom Dickinson, Washington State University; Pullman WA USA
    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Laser materials interactions underlie a multitude of applications ranging from surface modification and structure formation, machining and cutting, and the formation of atom/molecule/ion sources for thin film growth (pulsed laser deposition). For several years we have been investigating the laser-induced emission mechanisms from materials at fluences below the threshold for optical breakdown in transparent wide bandgap materials. Under these conditions, very gentle, single atomic layer manipulat...

  • PICALO 2008 Paper #M1003 (Laser-assisted Hot Embossing of Microstructures)

    Laser-assisted Hot Embossing of Microstructures
    Authors:
    Jens Holtkamp, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology; Aachen Germany
    Arnold Gillner, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology; Aachen Germany
    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Conventional technologies for the manufacturing of micro-structured components with geometries below 100µm are injection moulding and hot embossing. Both technologies are mainly limited to polymer materials and require long cycle times since the whole forming tool has to be heated. These drawbacks can be eliminated by a newly developed laser assisted hot embossing technology, where high energy density laser radiation is used for a selective and fast heatin...

    Presented at PICALO 2008

    Laser has become an important tool for micro/nano machining. To enable the successful application of laser micro/nano machining in manufacturing, requirements on geometry, speed and quality have to be fulfilled. In this paper, we review several representative applications of laser micro/nano machining, and discuss ways of solving the practical issues simultaneously.

    Laser Deposition techniques are gaining wider acceptance within manufacturing industries for both repair and rapid manufacture of metal components. The Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS®) process is one of the leading techniques in this field. Multiple LENS systems are now employed at DoD and other facilities, repairing a variety of high-performance components. In this role, LENS can be employed to shorten overhaul cycle times, and in some cases ex...
