Paper Abstract

This paper discusses possible potentials of ultra short laser pules in the pulse width range < 10 picosecond from the perspective of laser micro processing. With the problems involved generating ultra short laser pluses at high average power it will be shown, that the most successful applications performed with ultra short pulse technology is associated with problems, where the precise energy localization plays a crucial role. The discussion is based on laser processing examples from the application laboratory at the LMTB GmbH comparing applications using q-switch Nd:YAG lasers with nanosecond pulse widths and mode-locked, amplified Ti:sapphire lasers.
