The article reports on the use of laser beam for producing electrical patterns. It states that laser micromachining and laser ablation offers a high flexibility of use and well-suited for fast prototyping. The result of combining the technologies of precision grinding of ceramics and laser ablation of metallized thin-film layers is discussed.
