Paper Abstract

In cooperation with the Institute of Optoelectronics MUT, the Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials conducts work on laser decoration of ceramic products. Two methods are under development: laser activation and laser sintering. The activation method is based on change of color of specially prepared ceramic material due only to illumination by laser beam. Laser sintering is a deposition welding process in which a layer of ceramic powder is deposited on the substrate material, and the two ceramic materials are fused through the application of laser beam, in turn creating any desired color pattern. The paper describes the influence of some physical phenomena on the progress of the laser process as well as sample experimental results.
