During the last decade, ultrafast lasers have been employed for high precision surface micro-structuring of materials such as metals, semi-conductors and dielectrics with little thermal damage. Due to the ultra short pulse duration, unwanted thermal effects can be absent during the ultrafast laser material processing, hence achieving ‘cool processing’. To ensure the thermal-free material processing, the laser fluence (i.e. energy density) must be kept low, a few times above the material’s ablation threshold. However, many commercial laser systems provide about 100 times higher energy density. Significant attenuation of the laser output is hence required for many applications and causes a great deal of energy loss. With this limitation in mind, a holographic multi-beam ultrafast laser parallel processing technique, where the high energy density single output is split into many desired diffracted beams with arbitrary geometric arrangement, is demonstrated in Liverpool Laser Group, University of Liverpool. The multi-beam patterns are generated by phase modulation using computer generated holograms (CGHs) which are displayed on a Spatial Light Modulator (SLM). The ability to address these devices in real time and synchronize with scanning methods adds an additional flexibility to the processing. The results obtained demonstrate high precision micro/nano-fabrication of different kinds of materials with greatly increased processing efficiency and throughput, indicating many potential industrial applications.
