Paper Abstract

Conventional laser machining is based on continuous-wave or long-pulse lasers. With these lasers, thermal diffusion limits the accuracy and the reproducibility of the machining process. Laser-matter interaction is fundamentally different in the ultrafast (femtosecond) regime. This discovery has opened the way for generalized fine laser micromachining.
