Excimer Laser Processing
With current advances in medical technology, the need for precise laser processing has risen dramatically. ALT’s Excimer lasers provide the best method for controlled depth ablation of polymers and plastics. The ability to control depth in microns provides an easy and cost effective method for removing excess material, exposing leads, pads, and removing oxide coatings.
An Excimer Laser generates nanosecond pulses, and is nearly always operated in the UV spectral region. The UV light from this laser is well absorbed by biological matter and organic compounds. Rather than burning or cutting material, the Excimer Laser adds enough energy to disrupt the molecular bonds of the surface and effectively disintegrates it in a tightly controlled manner.
