We believe that product development in phase with process development is key to industrial success. We have strengthened our development infrastructure through key partners in applied research, laser manufacturers, system integrators and OEM and offer global access to dedicated laboratories with laser sources ranging from ns to fs pulse regime.
NST collaborates with the team of Dr. B. Neuenschwander (Bern University of Applied Sciences) on high throughput scanning strategies for process efficient material removal rates (www.laser.ti.bfh.ch)
For specific expertise on femtosecond pulsed laser processing NST collaborates with the ALPhANOV team in Bordeaux, France (www.alphanov.com)
Additionally NST is involved in a number of European Calls:
The APPOLO Project (www.appolo-fp7.eu) is a step to the validation of novel laser technologies including equipment. Utilizing ultra short pulse laser scribing for monolithic interconnects in CIGS solar cells; use of smart surface texturing for Automotive & Printing/Decoration industries and 3 D flexible electronics.
The Ultrafast Razipol Project (www.razipol.eu) has the goal of developing a 500 W multi-MHz laser for high speed manufacturing of large area substrates. Polygon scanning, novel optics and electronics will be vital in delivering these high pulse rate laser beams over large areas.
