  1. Femtosecond laser glass cutting yields high bending strength, cut quality

    SANTA CLARA, CA – Spectra-Physics, a Newport Company, has introduced its ClearShape femtosecond laser process for high-quality, fast cutting of chemically strengthened glass, unstrengthened glass, and sapphire ( FIGURE ). At speeds over 1000mm/s, the process results in no chipping, R a <0.1µm edge roughness, and as-cut bending strength of >650MPa for chemically strengthened glass. Using the company's Spirit industrial femtosecond lasers, the new process has utility in 24/7 manufacturing of displays and windows for mobile devices, wearables, and other demanding applications. FIGURE. Spectra-Physics' ClearShape glass cutting process uses a femtosecond laser to cut chemically strengthened glass, unstrengthened glass, and sapphire at speeds over 1000mm/s. The company has also added the Spirit 1040-16 industrial femtosecond laser to its Spirit line. The new laser delivers >16W average output power with ultrashort <400fs pulse width, 40µJ pulse energy, and repetition rate up to 1MHz. Uses include fast, cold micromachining of semiconductors, flat panel displays, and other microelectronics manufacturing applications.
