Abstract:

Laser processing of materials, once largely curiosity driven, is now an established technology for micromachining, thin film synthesis, device packaging, rapid prototyping, and even nanoscale synthesis and processing of materials. The main driving force behind these developments is the seemingly limitless adaptability of lasers in providing unique material processing solutions, manufacturing of otherwise unattainable devices and structures, and the implementation of cost- effective solutions to complex manufacturing processes. The use of lasers for manufacturing microelectronic, optoelectronic, and MEMS devices is now becoming an established enabling technology meanwhile, applications to nanotechnology are rapidly evolving. These proceedings on Photon Processing in Microelectronics and Photonics II consist of papers presented at three conferences A. Laser Applications in Microelectronics and Optoelectronic Manufacturing VIII LAMOM-VIlI B. Laser-Based Packaging in Microelectronics and Photonics II LPMP-ll C. Synthesis and Photonics of Nanoscale Materials SPNM.
