Paper Abstract

In this article, changes in structural and electrical properties of surface coatings were investigated after laser remelting. The surface Ni-coating under investigation has been obtained by plasma spraying. Surface remelting was carried out under a pulse Nd:YAG laser. Microstructure evolution and phase identification was investigated by means of optical and scanning microscopy and X-ray microanalysis. Laser remelting eliminated defects and porosity of a surface layer and suppressed the oxide phase. The electrical resistivity of a plasma sprayed layer was decreased and the temperature resistivity coefficient was increased due to these structural changes.
