Manufacturing processes are constantly evolving and the complexity of the devices to be produced continues to grow. In the microelectronics, medical and photonics industries, most devices include a stacking of various layers made of different materials. Each layer must be processed individually to ensure a good performance of the device. This is where selective laser…
Mid-infrared supercontinuum sources – what are their applications and how to generate them ?
Find out why mid-infrared lasers are about to become one the most important laser technology of the 21st century.
Scientists at Université Laval, including our very own Simon Duval, recently published an article about a “novel fabrication technique for the fabrication of on-surface photonic devices in polymers” using mid-IR femtosecond lasers. In this article we will explore the origins and implications of this breakthrough.
