AbstractIn this paper, we describe a novel set of laser processes for the CIGS P1, P2 and P3 scribing steps, the development of which has been enabled by a unique pulse-programmable fiber laser. This innovative new laser technology allows pulse duration to be varied from approximately 2 to several 100s of nanoseconds, independent of the laser repetition rate, which can be varied up to 500 kHz. In addition, each pulse can be arbitrarily programmed to generate a specific desired temporal profile of instantaneous laser power. Pulse trains comprised of these shaped pulsed can be applied to the process at high repetition rates.
