Industrial applications of ultrafast laser processing | December 9, 2016

As part of a special issue of MRS Bulletin (Material Research Society), a review article on industrial applications of ultrafast laser processing, under a joint collaboration with Eric Mottay, CEO of Amplitude, key researchers and industry leaders

MRS bulletin December 2016

The article describes in particular how ultrafast lasers can improve vision in patients, extend battery lifetime, improve the efficiency of solar cells and infrared detectors, or be applied in the printing or microelectronics industries.

Role of ion migrations in ultrafast laser written tellurite glass waveguides | December 1, 2015

In two recent papers, researchers at the University of Madrid and CSIC in Spain demonstrate that ion migration is a key process to increase refractive index modification induced by femtosecond lasers, opening the way for efficient device manufacturing. A recent article in the SPIE Newsroom provides a nice summary.
