Paper Abstract

Excimer lasers have been employed for large area surface treatment of bulk ceramics and/or ceramic coatings on a metallic surface. These applications are aimed at the improvement of surface morphology (e.g., grain size, roughness, porosity, etc.) and properties (e.g., hardness, corrosion resistance, conductivity etc.). The influence of KrF laser processing parameters on Al2O3 ceramic samples and/or coatings are discussed in relation to the above- mentioned surface characteristics.
