Abstract
Novel uses of excimer lasers for fabricating products such as biomedical probes and sensors, fenestrated contact lenses and microelectrode sensor arrays are described. With the suppliers of these products various types of excimer laser processing techniques have been developed-- from relatively straightforward micromachining of polymers to surface modification methods and holographic recording. Results that highlight the performances of various products are presented and the excimer laser methods employed in their production are discussed.
