Paper Abstract

Interaction of a CuBr laser, operating at 511 nm wavelength and pulse duration of 30 ns with titanium wafers was studied. It was investigated the efficiency of laser ablation, depending on the laser fluence, on the laser beam scanning speed, and laser pulse frequency. The titanium surface modification was studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and XPS (X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy). Nanosecond laser irradiation of Ti led to the formation of high porous granular structures consisting of agglomerated small micro- and sub microparticles.
