Paper Abstract

Demand for higher precision, clean laser based processes has driven the development of picosecond pulse width lasers that operate at high frequency with high average powers. Industries like microelectronics and LCD manufacturing are gearing up for the next generation of devices that demand tighter densities, better electrical efficiency, higher speed and better quality. We focus here on the differences between processing with nanosecond and picosecond pulses on Silicon and on alumino-borosilicate glass.
