Can Your Laser Micro Drilling System Do All This?

The recent introduction of 5-axis laser micro drill systems expands the limits of micrometer range drilling. Canon’s unique technology creates flexible hole shapes and wider angles at significantly higher processing speeds. Stent production, injector hole drilling, and micromachining will benefit.

The Beginner’s Guide To Laser Beam Quality And M2 Measurement

A pure Gaussian beam with a TEM00 profile and a bell-shaped curve that spreads on infinitely is never achieved. This guide introduces the concept of laser beam quality measurement with the M2 parameter, which quantifies the laser beam quality, and how to measure M2 for a real laser.

What Is A Neutral Density Filter?

A neutral density, or ND, optical filter reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, therefore providing for no changes in the hue of the color rendition. Neutral density filters can be colorless or clear, or they can be grey in tone.

Optical Interconnects For Data Centers — Lighting The Cloud

The demand for storage and data transfer capacity has increased dramatically over the last decade. The need to constantly access and transfer data to and from, as well as within, data centers has placed a huge load on the interconnects connecting the backplanes of data servers. 

Using IR Zoom Lenses For Long-Range Security And Surveillance Applications

Long-range IR imaging plays an important role for monitoring, tracking, and targeting within security and surveillance markets. Long-range IR cameras must be equipped with high-performance IR lenses that can effectively capture the emitted IR radiation and focus it onto a detector array.

Silicon To Glass Bonding Wafer Substrate: SD-2

SD-2 is a type of substrate used to minimize the distortion and bowing effects caused by a thermal mismatch between two wafers. This mismatch is typically a result of the CTE curves of borosilicate glass and CTE curves of silicon single crystal waves crossing at 240oC.
