Paper Abstract

To increase the absorptance of metal surfaces at the radiation of a CO2 laser beam in this work, a chemical etching technique has been used that allows the controlled modification of the superficial roughness. Absorptance tests have been performed in conditions close to real treatment using a CO2 c.w. 2.5 kW laser. The modification of the absorptance has been evaluated by means of the obtained effects on the treated surfaces. The achieved results show how the formation of microcavities on the analyzed surfaces allows a remarkable increase in the absorptance in real treatment conditions.
