Femtosecond Laser Micromachining of Next-Generation Implantable Medical Devices
Palmaz Scientific, Spectra-Physics, and Innovative Laser Technologies (ILT) announced the demonstration of femtosecond laser micromachining of next-generation implantable medical devices. With Spectra-Physics’ femtosecond lasers and ILT’s precision machining systems, Palmaz Scientific has demonstrated the fabrication of leading-edge implantable stents with extremely fine and advanced surface nanotechnologies for exceptional biocompatibility.
Palmaz worked closely with ILT and Spectra-Physics to jointly develop a customized system to take advantage of Palmaz’s proprietary and disruptive technologies. The new laser system has successfully demonstrated the capability of holding the precise tolerances necessary for these very fine structures.
