Thin Film Removal Lasers

Thin Film Removal Lasers

Laser thin film removal is the process of selectively ablating a very thin layer of material from a substrate, and is widely used on silicon, glass, ceramics, plastics, and metals. Thin film removal lasers are generally short pulsed with the ability to operate at high repetition rates to allow for sufficient pulse overlap at high processing speeds without damaging the substrate. Additionally, thin film removal lasers must have very high beam quality and a high degree of accuracy.  The wavelengths of choice for these lasers are typically in the ultraviolet region in order to minimize depth penetration, but infrared lasers are still used in some cases.   On this page, you will find a list of all of the thin film removal lasers.
