Abstract

Many materials are best machined using uv lasers sources which until recently has been the principal laser used in uv machining applications. The uv outputs available from frequency doubling of CVLs can now be generated with good efficiency to yield multi-watt diffraction-limited output ideal for uv micromachining. Recent progress has come through a greater understanding of the control of CVL beam quality and improvements in focusing geometries for the nonlinear frequency conversion process.
