Paper Abstract

In the present paper the possibility of the Copper Bromide (CuBr) laser as an attractive tool in the micromachining of different materials has been demonstrated. High-quality percussion drilling, trepanning, scribing, and precision cutting were demonstrated on metals and ceramics with a negligible heat affected zone (HAZ). These good results were achieved with the combination of high power, short pulses, visible radiation and close to the diffraction-limited beam quality.
