... and the laser beam can be precisely positioned using deflection mirrors. By reducing pulse lengths from a few nanoseconds down to the picosecond or femtosecond range, material ablation is becoming increasingly “athermal”, i.e. structure damage by local heating is reduced to well below a few microns. In view...
