Paper Abstract

IMRA's ultrashort pulse fiber laser products continue to evolve to expand the application scope. The latest prototype FCPA produces pulses with less than 500-fs pulse duration at a 50-kHz repetition rate. At the fundamental wavelength of 1045 nm, the pulse energy is greater than 10 mJ. The increase in pulse energy over the standard FCPA μJewel permits greater flexibility in the focusing conditions applicable for micromachining, enabling a wider variety of laser-machined structures and profiles. This paper describes the latest micromachining application areas being studied with this new laser.
