Paper Abstract

Laser ablation of composite materials consisted of elastic polymer and carbon black was carried out for surface modification of composite sheets. The ablated surface was studied by scanning electron microscopy, XPS, and Raman spectroscopy. High intensity irradiation produced cylindrical protuberances on the surface. With the increase of laser pulses the protuberances became large in 20-30 micrometers by aggregation of small ones. Low intensity irradiation produced dome-like Voronoi polyhedrons as the results of development of dispersed carbon particles. The microstructure formation is of interest from the viewpoints of tribological applications.
