Paper Abstract

Physical processes occurring by laser cleaning of metal surfaces from soiling particles, coatings and near-surface oxide or corroded layer are considered. Unconventional methods of laser cleaning which promote increasing the quality and effectiveness of cleaning and solving of the problem of soiling substance gathering are proposed. Applications of these methods in a number of novel fields, such as pinholes cleaning, coatings removal, radioactive contaminated layers removal, cleaning of objects of historic and cultural heritage are considered.
