We report the successful picosecond laser welding of AlSi and YAG. This material combination is of significant interest to the field of laser design and construction. Parameter maps are presented that demonstrate the impact of pulse energy and focal position on the resultant weld. Weld performance relevant to industrial applications is measured, i.e., shear strength, process yield, and absolute thermal resistance are presented.
