Laser-based silicon crystallization for monolithic integration
in MEMS sensors

Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) have proven themselves a billion times over as sensors in smart cars, cell phones and mini insulin pumps, among other things. To make these MEMS even more powerful in the future, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen have developed a CMOS-compatible deposition and laser crystallization process in collaboration with the Fraunhofer ISIT and IST. In contrast to other common processes, this new process eliminates the need for wires and solder joints, an advantage that can significantly reduce the component size and enhance the sensor performance.

Fraunhofer ILT expands cooperation with Korea

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen has been cooperating with the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials KIMM for years, for example, in projects on laser welding or micromaterial processing. Now that the institutes have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, this cooperation will become even more effective. In the future, the partners plan to work on environmentally friendly manufacturing processes for electromobility and new storage technologies, among other things.

New Spatial Light Modulator for dynamic beam shaping in industrial high-power USP processes

Together with Hamamatsu, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen has set up an application lab for advanced laser material processing with ultrashort pulsed (USP) laser radiation. In Aachen, the partners jointly developed an industrial processing SLM-head that can use customized, dynamic beam shaping combined with large laser average output powers for a wide range of applications. The applied, new Spatial Light Modulator from Hamamatsu can be operated up to 150 watts of average output power.
