  • Publication number: 20190283178
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for cutting dielectric or semiconducting material with a laser. The method includes the following steps: emission of a laser beam including at least one burst of N femtoseconds laser pulses; spatial separation of the laser beam into a first split beam having a first energy, and respectively, a second split beam having a second energy; spatial concentration of energy of the first split beam in a first zone of the material, respectively, of the second split beam in a second zone of the material, the first zone and the second zone being separate and staggered by a distance dx; and adjustment of the distance between the first zone and the second zone in such a way as to initiate a straight micro-fracture oriented between the first zone and the second zone.

  • Publication number: 20160368086
    Abstract: A method for forming features in a substrate includes irradiating a substrate with a beam of laser pulses, wherein the laser pulses have a wavelength selected such that the beam of laser pulses is transmitted into an interior of the substrate through a first surface of the substrate. The beam of laser pulses is focused to form a beam waist at or near a second surface of the substrate, wherein the second surface is spaced apart from the first surface along a z-axis direction, and the beam waist is translated in a spiral pattern extending from the second surface of the substrate toward the first surface of the substrate. The beam of laser pulses is characterized by a pulse repetition rate in a range from 20 kHz to 3 MHz, a pulse duration, a pulse overlap, and a z-axis translation speed.

  • Publication number: 20140306602
    Abstract: The invention relates to a high-frequency lamp with a glass bulb and a device for supplying a high-frequency signal. High-frequency lamps known in the prior art either have been limited to a narrow selection of substances in the glass bulb or have relied on a heating process using a spiral-wound filament or the like. The aim of the invention is to provide an inexpensive and more efficient high-frequency lamp. This is to be achieved in particular in that the glass bulb is made, for example from window glass, so as to be heatable by the heat losses of the high-frequency signal in the glass bulb such that even metal halogenides for example can be evaporated without an additional heating process.

  • Patent number: 7411349
    Abstract: A UV radiator has an essentially tubular discharge vessel designed to produce dielectric barrier discharges at one end and sealed in a gas-tight manner at both ends, and in each case at least one elongate inner and outer electrode which is oriented parallel to the longitudinal axis of the discharge vessel. If it is imagined that the tubular part of the discharge vessel is split into two equal halves by an imaginary longitudinal section, the at least one inner electrode is arranged on the inside of the first imaginary tube half, and the at least one outer electrode is arranged on the outside of the second imaginary tube half, and essentially diametrically with respect to one another. As a result, and as a result of the shape and number and arrangement of the outer electrode(s), directional radiation characteristics are achieved.

  • Patent number: 7224111
    Abstract: An elongated dielectric barrier discharge lamp with outer and inner electrodes has a tube that is arranged on the lamp stand end of the discharge vessel and that surrounds the lamp stand. The tube serves to receive a seal in order to install the lamp in a process chamber in a gastight manner. Power supply of the outer electrodes is separated from the power supply for the inner electrodes coming out of the lamp stand by means of the above-mentioned tube. This makes it possible to prevent effectively parasitic discharges between the power supplies which are applied at different potentials during operation also in process chambers under negative pressure.

  • Patent number: 6847157
    Abstract: A dielectric barrier discharge lamp having a cap (2), an elongate discharge vessel (1) and strip-like outer electrodes (5a-5f) has a corresponding contact spring (7a-7f) for each outer electrode. These contact springs are arranged in the interior of the cap. The cap also includes a cap sleeve (6), which surrounds one end of the discharge vessel (1) in such a manner that the or each strip-like outer electrode (5a-5f) is in electrically conductive contact with the or a corresponding contact spring (7a-7f). Preferably, the transverse extent of the individual contact springs, at least in the region of the contact, is less than or equal to the width of the corresponding strip-like outer electrode. This design combines ease of installation of the cap with a reliable contact and a high lamp efficiency.

  • Patent number: 6634917
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a discharge lamp, which is preferably designed for dielectric barrier discharges. The innovation is that a frame is used in order to set, and secure in its position, an electrode running at a distance from the vessel faces in the discharge vessel of the discharge lamp. This frame is simultaneously used as an exhaust tube.
