Paper Abstract

I always feel a little bit strange coming to these meetings because low-powered lasers, at least as I have been associated with them, which is sort of historically in the 20 to 50 watt range, or even less than 20 watt lasers, aren't seen to be really industrial type devices. Specifically for many markets they are not. For example, none of them can even start to approach doing cutting metal, even sub millimeter thick. But by the same token, they do have their place and I think that a case can be made that that place is going to expand in the future ... if you wish hard enough and you have a lot of faith.
