Paper Abstract

As part of a larger program investigating the machining of advanced composite materials using both traditional and laser techniques, a series of three polymeric matrix composites (PMCs) have been subjected to lasing trials using a pulsed Nd-YAG laser. This paper presents an overview of this work and comments on the application of YAG laser processing to PMC materials in general based on the examination of three specific composite systems.
