It's Not All Done With Mirrors

Steering a laser beam accurately and rapidly onto target to perform intricate micro-materials processing tasks is critical to success in many applications.

This is particularly true in the consumer electronics, semiconductor and automotive industries where the demand for increased functionality, reduced size and low cost has driven manufacturers down a seemingly never-ending path of miniaturization. In-turn the manufacturing processes and equipment used in today’s fabs has had to evolve in response. Right at the heart of this evolution is G&H, with our range of acousto-optic deflectors (AODFs).

To explain why these components are becoming ever more indispensable in microelectronics material and semiconductor processing applications, it is worth briefly exploring the changing nature of those applications themselves – and of the lasers they ultimately rely on.
