Shortcomings of Femtosecond Lasers
Until recently, low throughput due to low average power was the dominant prohibitive factor in establishing the use of femtosecond lasers for commercial applications. Then, along came our IMPULSE source, whose > 20 W average power beam has dramatically increased throughput capabilities, and has subsequently lowered the cost of femtosecond micromachining on a per-unit basis to a more acceptable level for production. Additional increases in average output power are on the horizon at Clark-MXR. Look for new increases in throughput and new production capabilities in the near future.
