Paper Abstract

Presently, from the world data available on interaction of laser radiation with metal and dielectric surfaces and development of experimental diagnostic techniques by itself it is possible to raise a reverse question, namely, restoration of laser radiation energy spatial distribution through surface imprint. With this in mind, we have made the detailed morphology of imprint of a pulse HF-laser interaction with carbon steel surface through atomic force microscope. Interaction of the radiation of a relatively short pulse of ArXe-laser ((tau) ½equals400 ns, (lambda) equals1,73 micrometers , Q ~ 20 J/cm+2)) with carbon steel surface of 40X (4140 (USA)) type besides the surface layer hardening leaded to decrease of steel hardness at below original value on depth of about 10 - 12 micrometers . This effect can be related to occurrence of deformation and thermal residual stresses in the subsurface layer. At multiple-pulse interaction (~500 pulses) of UV-laser focused radiation ((lambda) equals0,222 or 0,308 micrometers , (tau) ½equals 12 or 20 ns) with the steel 40X (4140 (USA)) surface a distinct interference imprint of laser beam is formed after diffraction at outer diaphragm being determined by its form.
