Laser machineries have become more and more efficient and precise in the last years and the field of applications today very wide. Nevertheless, on the market there are no laser machineries with high operational flexibility for marking, cutting, engraving and micro-drilling metals. The objective of NOVIGLAS is to realise an innovative laser system that will allow overcoming this limitation.

The main innovation of the project regards the diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) source, based on polycrystalline Nd:YAG (Yittrium Aluminium Garnet doped with Neodymium) ceramics. Respect to mono-crystalline Nd:YAG this material not only can be doped with an higher amount of Nd (5 times more) but can reach better optical and thermal and is easier and less expensive to produce. The particular pumping geometry adopted for the DPSS laser source (edge pumped geometry) allows to reduce the thermal stress on the Nd:YAG material. This allows obtaining an output laser beam matching high power (200 W TEMoo) with high beam quality (M2<5).
