Paper Abstract

Lasers are capable of delivering energy to a metal to induce stresses from the thermal gradient through the material. Under the right conditions these stresses can cause the metal to bend. Experiments were conducted to produce bending in the metal, Neyoro® G, and samples with a titanium coating on one side. In the experiments, both upward and downward bending was observed. The titanium coated samples showed potential to be more controllable than the uncoated samples.
