…is drilling for glass interposers used
in 2.5D and 3D advanced circuit packaging
techniques. This application takes advantage of both the superior focusability and
lower absorption of 5-µm light in glass.
Specifically, it enables very small holes to
be drilled in glass with…
…generation of carbon monoxide (CO) lasers from Coherent, promise enhanced processing characteristics in applications ranging from glass, ceramic and film cutting and drilling, through medical and aesthetics fractional skin resurfacing. While CO lasers were first developed decades ago, practical…

…result is a very
high bend strength for the glass. Furthermore, CO laser cutting of thin glass
is also performed with a round beam,
allowing radial (free form) cutting of
curves and other shapes.

three-pulse process. The first pulse drills
through the overlying copper, which has
a black oxide coating on it to make it absorb infrared (IR). The second pulse drills
through the glass resin board substrate material, which absorbs IR. The final pulse…
