Paper Title:
Micromachining Characteristics of Sapphire with Fifth HG Nd:YAG Laser
  Abstract

In order to reduce the thermal influences in laser machining of sapphire surface, effects of a short-pulse ultra-violet laser were investigated. For the UV laser, the Fifth harmonic generation (Fifth HG) wave of an Nd:YAG laser (wavelength:213nm) was utilized. Significant reduction of thermal damages on the surface was demonstrated with the Fifth HG pulses compared to longer wavelengths of the Nd:YAG laser. It was shown that the control of depth of bottom surface with reduced thermal influences was possible in lower fluence cases(less than 40 J/cm2) with a homogenized beam and smooth surface roughness Ra < 200nm was obtainable.
