Ultrafast Laser Processing

From Micro- to Nanoscale

edited by Koji Sugioka and Ya Cheng

“This book covers a broad range of ultrafast lasers, from the fundamentals to scientific and industrial applications of materials processing. It provides the reader with background information on these systems and processes commonly performed using ultrafast lasers and explains why the ultrafast laser is needed and why these processes are not possible using longer pulse time lasers. The section on processes covers the fundamentals mechanisms of the interaction of ultrafast laser pulses with matter, beam-shaping techniques for micro and nano-processing, surface patterning, drilling, cutting, ablation, and phenomena in transparent materials, including internal modification. The section on applications deals with the fabrication of 3-D photonic chips and biochips, 3-D lithography, and various industrial applications, including embossing tools, engraving printing rolls, and functionalization of photovoltaic panels. Clearly presented background, state-of-the-art methods, and future prospects are covered for each topic. This would be an outstanding book for researchers or application engineers who want to learn about the uses of ultrafast lasers for micro- and nano-material processing. The practical information on materials processes and the well-written background fundamentals are particularly helpful.”
