San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – As one of the most important inventions of the 20th century, laser technology has changed modern lives and still continues to remain at the forefront of numerous new technology breakthroughs in the 21st century. Defined as optical light amplification through stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation, lasers are today widely used in several scientific, military, medical, industrial and commercial applications. The ubiquity of lasers can be put into perspective by the fact that the technology today impacts every aspect of life from medicine, manufacturing, communications, measurement, research & analysis to entertainment. The manufacturing industry represents the largest end-use of the technology with laser finding widespread use in high precision cutting and welding applications. The last two decades witnessed robust growth in demand for laser systems supported by the technology’s proficiency in machining jobs such as cutting, and welding. Years of progressive technological developments have made lasers more versatile, robust and compact thus expanding their applications beyond manufacturing. Few of the emerging application areas include measurement and analysis, defense and national security, medicine and health, energy, smart materials, communications, and environment and climate.
In measurement and analysis applications, lasers are used to measure and mark construction sites & highways, analyze physical structures, detect biochemical hazards. In the healthcare industry, lasers find critical applications in complex surgeries in fields encompassing dentistry, neurology, cardiology, dermatology, and ophthalmology, among others. In the energy generation industry, lasers are used to ignite nuclear fusion and are currently being researched for use in the development of solar cells. Lasers are also used to monitor the level of greenhouse gases in the environment. In the telecommunication sector, lasers power fiber optics networks which are rapidly replacing copper-wire networks. Specific to the use of laser systems in material processing, demand is poised to benefit from the development of laser diode solutions. Defined as semiconductor lasers, diode lasers are based on diode structure and offer efficiency levels over 30% higher than lasers with conventional configurations. In the industrial sector, rising demand for advanced automation and control systems, improvements in instrumentation and standardization of equipment, will continue to fuel demand for high power laser diode systems. Growth will also stem from the consumer electronics sector, spearheaded by the high demand for smartphones and tablet PCs.
Over the years, lasers have evolved into potent tools for effective material processing. The numerous advantages of lasers including their compatibility for use with a wide range of materials are encouraging a shift in preference away from conventional processing technology towards laser technology. From cutting and shaping complex and delicate cardiovascular stents, wielding thick steel in shipbuilding applications, to precision drilling of guide vanes in the manufacture of aerospace components, lasers offer unrivalled performance and cost benefits. The development of fiber lasers has additionally extended the reliability of lasers in manufacturing applications. Fiber lasers are making an impact on high-speed drilling in silicon, in addition, to marking and engraving applications in metals, plastics, and ceramics. Reconfigurable laser micro processing platforms are growing in popularity in semiconductor manufacturing and for structuring and polishing of large 3D material surfaces.
