Paper Abstract

Conventional laser processing of materials is essentially based on heat treatment which can take place in vacuum or in a nonreactive surrounding. Here, the high irradiance of the laser beam is used to induce structural transformations, such as removal of residival damage, recrystallization, amorphization, hardening, alloying etc., within the surface of the material. In micromachining such as drilling, cutting, shaping, welding etc., the material is melted and vaporized 1.
