Abstract:

Translume is proposing a glass manufacturing process that combines anisotropic wet chemical etching with femtosecond-laser nanostructuring to shape three-dimensional glass objects. This innovative fabrication technique can be used to machine optical structures, optical sensors, and optical surfaces with micron and submicron accuracy. It can also be used to texture surfaces. Our technique is cost-effective and can be readily transferred from the R&D laboratory to manufacturing.
