Lumley Robert Miller: Initiation of a controlled fracture. Western Electric Company Incorporated, October 5, 1971: US3610871 (61 worldwide citation)

Ceramic substrates, and the like, are parted by reflecting a focused laser beam off a mirrored surface so that the focal point of the beam impinges upon the lower surface of the substrate at an extreme edge thereof. The impingement of the focused beam creates a precisely defined localized fracture i ...
