Display and Electronics Manufacturing Lasers

What are Display and Electronics Manufacturing Lasers?

Display and electronics manufacturing lasers are specialized tools used in the fabrication, assembly, and testing of electronic components and display technologies. These pulsed lasers offer precise and controlled energy deposition during various manufacturing stages, ensuring high-quality production. They find applications in semiconductor manufacturing, PCB fabrication, display production (such as OLED and LCD), and other electronic manufacturing processes. Display and electronics manufacturing lasers enable precise patterning, drilling, cutting, repair, and other essential tasks, contributing to efficient and accurate manufacturing processes.

Display and Electronics Manufacturing Applications

LCD Repair Lasers: LCD repair lasers selectively cut out a bad pixel that is affecting the display, restoring overall display quality without having to scrap and replace the screen. These lasers are focused down through a high magnification microscope to ablate the defect. These LCD repair lasers must have high-quality beam profiles to be focused down to the size of the pixel, as well as high pulse energy (typically ns pulsed).

OLED Production Lasers: OLED production lasers are specialized for manufacturing OLED displays, patterning organic materials with precision, aiding in encapsulation, facilitating the repair processes, and improving display quality by correcting defects and non-functional pixels. 3rd & 4th harmonic DPSS lasers (typically ns or ps pulsed UV) are ideal for OLED production because they provide high-quality repeatable pulses ideal for high volume mass production.

PCB Production Lasers: PCB manufacturing requires high throughput, accuracy, and precision, involving laser soldering, laser etching, laser trimming, and laser cutting/drilling in the automated manufacturing process. Since the uses for PCB production lasers vary so widely, so do their properties, but in general, these lasers (typically ns or ps pulsed, single-mode) tend to be single spatial mode to allow for the laser to be focused down to a tiny spot. Additionally, these lasers are often beam shaped depending on the exact need of the weld or cut.

Resistor Trimming Lasers: Laser trimming (typically ns or ps pulsed, high quality TEM00 beam) is commonly used in the electronics industry for removing small amounts of material in integrated circuits to optimize their performance, adjusting resistor values, and can be used on capacitors and other thin film components in the circuit. One significant advantage of laser trimming is that it allows for active adjustments to be made while critical parameters of the devices are actively monitored.

Scribing Lasers: Laser scribing is a process that involves using a laser beam (typically ns or ps pulsed q-switched) to create precise, controlled cuts or lines on a surface. It is commonly used in industries such as electronics, solar cell manufacturing, and thin-film deposition. By adjusting the laser’s power, speed, and focus, laser scribing can produce fine grooves, channels, or patterns on materials like glass, silicon, metals, or ceramics.

Lithography Lasers: (Pulsed & CW, SLM, single-mode, UV & blue) Photolithography is a material processing technique which is widely used in the semiconductor industry for etching nanoscale structures into wafers. This process transfers shapes from a photomask to the wafer using ultraviolet light either by a gas discharge lamp or by ultraviolet lithography lasers.  UV light is traditionally used in photolithography because the minimum image size of an optical system is dependent on the wavelength of light.
