  • Publication number: 20180134606
    Abstract: A method for separating a portion from a sheet glass element having a thickness of at least 2 millimeters along an intended separation line that divides the sheet glass element into the portion and a remaining main part is provided. The method includes producing filamentary damages comprising sub-micrometer hollow channels in a volume of the glass sheet element adjacently aligned along the separation line; and heating and/or cooling the glass sheet element to cause expansion and/or contraction so that the portion detaches from the main part along the separation line. The portion and the remaining main part each remain intact as a whole. The step of producing the filamentary damages includes generating a plasma within the volume with laser pulses of an ultrashort pulse laser; and displacing points of incidence of the laser pulses over a surface of the glass sheet element along the separation line.

  • Publication number: 20180134604
    Abstract: A method is provided that includes producing filamentary damages in a volume of a glass or glass ceramic element adjacently aligned along a separation line and extend obliquely relative to a surface of the glass or glass ceramic element; and separating a portion from the glass or glass ceramic element along the separation line. The step of producing the filamentary damages includes directing laser pulses of an ultrashort pulse laser obliquely on the surface so that the laser pulses have a light propagation direction that extends obliquely relative to the surface and so that the filamentary damages resulting from the laser pulses have the longitudinal extension that extends obliquely relative to the surface; generating a plasma within the volume with the laser pulses; and displacing the laser pulses at points of incidence over the surface along the separation line.

  • Publication number: 20180117708
    Abstract: A method provides for producing modifications in or on a transparent workpiece using a laser processing device. The laser processing device has a short pulse or ultrashort pulse laser that emits laser radiation having a wavelength in the transparency range of the workpiece and which has a beam-shaping optical unit for beam shaping for focusing the laser radiation. The transparent workpiece is composed of a material that has a plurality of phases, of which at least two phases have different dielectric constants, of which in turn the one phase is a phase embedded in the form of particles, which phase is substantially surrounded by the other phase, and wherein the product of the volume of the particles specified in cubic nanometers and the ratio of the absolute value of the difference of the two different dielectric constants to the dielectric constant of the surrounding phase is greater than 500.
