  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10600135
    Abstract: To minimize the amount of calculation for changing an operation schedule even when there is an increase in the number of sites. A management computer calculates a first total schedule value, which is the total of the schedule values for each of the sites within a first time frame. If the first total schedule value exceeds a first target value set in advance, the management computer: calculates a first excess amount of the first total schedule value in relation to the first target value; selects, as a first site, a site subjected to a change in a demand schedule from a group of candidate sites satisfying a candidate criterion set in advance from among a plurality of the sites, the selection being performed on the basis of information on the facility characteristics for each of the sites; changes a first demand schedule of the first site in the first time frame; and transmits the changed first demand schedule to a control device of the first site.
