Clear structures with laser technology
Glass finishing without laser technology is no longer thinkable. It is also used for structuring glass surfaces.
A difference must be made here, however, between processes that are applied at the homeworker shop and the industrial processes. Structuring primarily means to process the glass surface so that clear contours become apparent, that is, structured unevennesses.
Experts distinguish between knob-type structures and well-type structures. To achieve structures also on larger glass surfaces, scientists have developed the so-called three-beam interference technology.
The special feature is the division of a laser beam into three spatially arranged single beams superimposed at a defined angle. Different structures can be produced by changing the direction of polarisation of the individual beams.
