The Laser Micromachinning Laboratory is equipped with the toolong enabling production of both flat as well as spatial microstructures. Precise positioning systems of the processed material and laser beam scanning allow for making the structures in the micrometric scale.
A wide spectrum of laser radiation sources from UV to infrared allows for execution of laser micromachining on a large variety of materials such as: metals, semiconductors, plastics, glass, ceramics.
Use of ultra-short laser impulses and radiation in the UV range ensures precise micro machining at minimal thermal reaction.
