The article focuses on the development of laser processing in the laser industry. It could be noted that advances in the laser processing expand the laser markets as well as the production techniques. This could be attributed to the distinctive nature of Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state lasers. The Rapid Laser Processing offers an opportunity to eradicate the use of large size photomasks and the associated lithography tools in ITO coatings.
