Abstract

A workstation that permits real-time measurement of ablation depth while micromachining with femtosecond laser pulses is demonstrated. This method incorporates the unamplified pulse train that is available in a chirped-pulse amplification system as the probe in an arrangement that uses spectral interferometry to measure the ablation depth while cutting with the amplified pulse in thin metal films.
