Paper Abstract

The present study examines the effect of plasma on CO2 laser drilling of mild steel samples using oxygen assisting gas at different pressures. A fiber optic probe was used to detect the plasma on the surface of the workpiece. Mild steel samples at different thicknesses were used as workpieces. Oxygen was introduced coaxially with the laser beam.
