Exploring novel capabilities of ultrafast lasers for surface finishing!

The versatility of ultrafast laser radiation is extended by a precision polishing process based on tailored surface melting. Significant advantages of ultrafast laser polishing are:

1. Surface roughness Ra < 100 nm

2. Lateral selectivity < 2 µm

3. Process speed > 10 cm²/min

4. Adjustable melt film thickness

5. Applicable under normal conditions

6. Integration into an ultrafast photonic process chain
