Industrial Laser Solutions;Jul/Aug2011, Vol. 26 Issue 4, p4
The article focuses on the development a customized laser beam profiles for polymer welding by LIMO Lissotschenko Mikrooptik GmbH and Leister Process Technologies Ltd. as part of the European Polybright project in Europe. It mentions the capability of a customized laser beam profiles to enhance laser polymer welding process performance. It notes that the diffractive optical elements (DOEs) developed by Leister take advantage of the high focusability of fiber lasers.
