The article reports on the importance of laser technology on the direct joining of polymers and ceramics. It notes that components made of different materials can be joined strongly and durably to each other through laser technology. It also mentions that micro-patterning and functionalization of surfaces of Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) and polymers require the use of laser technology.
