Glass Nucleation – Laser Etching Application

A nucleated beer glass has a textured pattern on the interior surface, creating a collection point for the dissolved carbon dioxide gas. As the gas is disturbed by these textures, it forms a stream of bubbles that float to the top. These streams of bubbles increase the head of foam which affects the aroma of the beverage by releasing more of the flavor profile. Laser systems are used in the creation of nucleated glasses through an etching process. CMS Laser has helped numerous clients research which patterns work best and have built systems for etching the bottom and side walls of glasses. Our systems can etch logos and a variety of dot patterns along the insides of glass using CO2 lasers.
