Paper Abstract

This study was employed to examine the interaction of a commercially used magnesium alloy AZ31B with an impulsional laser beam at 248 nm. The surface structure of the irradiated alloy was examined and the roughness factor was found to depend on the fluence of the incident pulse. The corrosion properties of the laser treated specimen were evaluated in 0.5 M NaCl and have been compared with that of the untreated alloy.
