Lasers in Modern Industries

  • A. J. De Maria
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 35)


Selected applications of lasers in semiconductor integrated circuits manufacturing, radar systems, material cutting and drilling, and inspection of electric power cables will be briefly discussed to serve as illustrative examples of laser applications in such modern industries as microelectronics, avionics, machining, and electric power. Reference 1 provides a discussion of worldwide laser markets and their growth for those readers who desire a broader overview of this subject.
