This article describes a breakthrough technique for bonding components with highly dissimilar materials properties. Traditionally this has been achieved with adhesives, frit, solder or some similar interlayer material which often leads to issues of inaccuracy, thermal damage and/or outgassing. Ultrashort Pulsed laser Welding (UPW) allows for direct bonding through fusion welding assisted by plasma.
