Laser micromachining of glass for biomedical applications

Laser cutting of glass is not trivial due to its brittleness and transparency. However, it is possible with tightly focused femtosecond laser pulses.

Laser micromachining of glass for biomedical applications is in high demand to mark glass or create lab-on-a-chip devices. Lab-on-a-chip devices contain high-precision tiny pipes, vessels, and valves. The use of ultrashort pulse lasers to fabricate lab-on-chip has gained wide acceptance due to the lasers’ ability to create fine precisely machined features and markings in glass.

Together with our UK collaborator, Optek Systems, we successfully machined typically sought lab-on-chip features and marking on glass with our OneFive Origami XP femtosecond laser.

The ORIGAMI XP has been designed for easy and cost-effective integration. It comes in an air-cooled, single-box chassis with removable handles and offers full remote-control capabilities. With a rugged design and low maintenance costs, it is ideal for many industrial applications.
