The world’s smallest military challenge coin, which measures just 1.9 mm in diameter
April 17, 2023
On the occasion of Lithuania’s 19th anniversary of joining NATO, Chief of Defence of Lithuania Lieutenant General Valdemaras Rupsys dedicated a one-of-a-kind military challenge coin to General Christopher G. Cavoli, Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) and Commander, U.S. European Command, as a token of appreciation for his efforts supporting Lithuania’s security and signifying a strong partnership between NATO, the United States of America, and Lithuania.
The world’s smallest military challenge coin, which measures just 1.9 mm in diameter, was made of glass by Femtika using its cutting-edge femtosecond laser Nanofactory.
What sets this achievement apart is the use of advanced selective laser etching technology – a process of removing material from a bulk of glass by using a high intensity ultrafast laser pulses to selectively modify material and subsequently etch it. This process allows for incredibly precise etching and patterning of materials, including glass, without damage or distortions. High-precision components and parts are produced using selective laser etching in a number of sectors, including electronics, aerospace, and medical devices.
We feel incredibly privileged to have been invited to contribute to this significant occasion.
