• Custom developed systems for various laboratory and industrial laser micromachining tasks: from ceramics scribing to 3D polymerization.
  • Workshop of Photonics has accumulated extensive experience in glass and various brittle materials ultrashort pulse laser micromachining for industry-compliant services. High accuracy, great repeatability, high speed and ability to fabricate difficult objects with submicron resolution are just a few advantages of our laser processing services.
  • Space variant waveplates are space variant retardance plates which enables tailored control of spatial polarization.
  • 3D additive manufacturing, or multiphoton polymerization (MPP) is a unique technology for 3D structuring of micron scale objects with nanometer precision.


  1. Laser Micro Cutting

    State of the art technology for transparent material cutting enables scribing tempered, non-tempered glass and sapphire with high process speed, low chipping and smooth side walls after breaking. Learn more.

  2. Laser Micro Scribing

    Special technology for heat sensitive material processing results in no heat affected zones and melted layers, narrow grooves, no overshooting in intersections, and high accuracy. Learn more.

  3. Laser Micro Drilling

    Developed laser drilling technology enables to control not only diameter, but also depth and tapper angle, as well as elipticity of the resulting hole, or matrix of holes. Learn more.

  4. Laser Micro Marking

    Marking inside a bulk of transparent material does not affect surface, cracks near markings are very small or absent. Surface marking of heat sensitive material leaves no signs of burning. Learn more.

  5. Selective Laser Ablation

    Laser ablation of selected layers from various surfaces does not create heat affected zone and allows to control depth and geometry of ablated layer. Learn more.

  6. 3D Additive Manufacturing

    Structuring micron scale objects using 3D additive manufacturing technology gives the opportunity to create complex shaped, multi-functional, integrated micro optics in a single fabrication procedure. Learn more.

High damage threshold – 63,4 J/cm2 @1064 nm, 10ns and 2,2 J/cm2 @1030 nm, 212fs. These numbers are not a typo – this is a true result of our s-waveplate testing for LIDT at the independent laboratory of Lidaris! Referring to LIDT measurements at fs and ns regime, we’ve observed our s-waveplate has laser irradiation […]
