Paper Abstract

The contribution deals with the diagnostics of laser induced plasma (LIP) by optical emission spectroscopy. Laser induced plasma occurs during laser welding and reveals important information about technological process. The performed experiments were concerned with in-time spectral analysis (wavelength range: 200-800 nm) of laser induced plasma of austenitic steel (18% Cr, 9% Ni) during cw CO2 laser welding. Circumstances of conversion from conducting mode to keyhole mode (and vice versa) were investigated. A comparison of the characteristics of the spectrum emission, penetration characteristics and input welding parameters was also studied.
