Laser micro processing is based on a light-matter interaction process at a micro or submicron scale i.e. a removal of matter by laser focalization on a very small surface area (laser spot of a few hundreds of µm2). The femtosecond lasers developed by Amplitude for more than 10 years have made real progress in this field. Indeed, the matter is ablated without going through the liquid state. The thermal effects during this operation are then reduced and the area affected by the heat remains negligible in front of the size of the laser spot on the sample. Thanks to our technology, we can achieve the highest precision and the highest available quality in micro-machining. Hence, the initial matter’s properties are not altered (no mechanical stresses induced, no electrical nor chemical modifications). For example: luxury products, automotive and aeronautics.
Amplitude femtoseconds lasers are compact, have a low power consumption, and are reliable over time.
