  • Patent number: 10622254
    Abstract: An object is irradiated with a laser light modulated by a reflection type spatial light modulator such that aberration of the laser light converged inside the object becomes a predetermined aberration or less. Therefore, aberration of the laser light generated at a position on which a converging point of the laser light is located is made as small as possible, to enhance the energy density of the laser light at that position, which makes it possible to form a modified region with a high function as a starting point for cutting. In addition, because the reflection type spatial light modulator is used, it is possible to improve the utilization efficiency of the laser light as compared with a transmissive type spatial light modulator.

  • Publication number: 20200076398
    Abstract: Laser-marked packaged surface acoustic wave devices are provided. The laser-marked packaged surface acoustic wave device may include a package structure encapsulating a surface acoustic wave device on a first side of a piezoelectric substrate. The opposite side of the piezoelectric substrate can be directly marked using a laser. The laser may be a deep ultraviolet laser. By directly marking the piezoelectric substrate itself, the use of a separate marking film can be avoided, making the packaged surface acoustic wave device thinner. When the laser has a wavelength readily absorbed by the piezoelectric substrate, a relatively shallow marking may be made in the piezoelectric substrate. The markings can extend less than 1 micrometer into the piezoelectric substrate, so as not to affect the structural integrity of the piezoelectric substrate or the operation of the packaged surface acoustic wave device.
