Laser micromachining includes all the laser processes used in the machining of very fine and/or small structures. A micrometer-scale precision and accuracy are required in order to obtain the desired structures and ensure its functionality. The applications are in all possible materials: metals, semiconductors, glass, polymers…
In the last years, we have seen an impressive increase in the number of industries and applications for laser micromachining. The end-users have more and more demanding requirements in terms of throughput and precision. So, new developments in the laser sources and the other components of the workstations are needed: ultra-short-pulsed lasers, mid-IR wavelengths, scanners, robots and movement stages, software, integration… Process monitoring is gaining importance to control the laser process in-line and ensure the quality of the parts produced. We invite the whole supply chain to present the new developments in laser micromachining, discuss the needs of the system integrators and end-users and find who photonics can help to overcome the remaining challenges.
