Laser Cleaning

Laser Cleaning

The cleaning of delicate components or the removal of thin films from optical components can be a great benefit in some high value areas. Lasers can remove layers as thin as a few nanometres from the surface of a component. With many materials the contamination is all that is removed with no damage whatsoever to the main material, even with extended exposure.

Micronanics have removed contamination from high value optical windows from vacuum chambers without damaging the window and have taken the contamination from the surface of a coin without damaging the metal of the coin.
