From concept to industry: Ultrafast laser welding

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article


When manufacturing optomechanical components, one of the more problematic steps is bonding the optical components to a structural body. Such optical components can include a whole variety of glass and crystal materials, but these materials are normally chosen for their optical properties rather than their structural or mechanical performance. Because it usually is inadvisable to manufacture the structural chassis from similar (i.e., glass) materials, this decision
inevitably leads to a significant mismatch between the properties of the optic and its mount, most significantly in their thermal properties.
