The book covers recent advances and progress in understanding both the fundamental science of lasers interactions in materials science, as well as a special emphasis on emerging applications enabled by the irradiation of materials by pulsed laser systems. The different chapters illustrate how, by careful control of the processing conditions, laser irradiation can result in efficient material synthesis, characterization, and fabrication at various length scales from atomically-thin 2D materials to microstructured periodic surface structures. This book serves as an excellent resource for all who employ lasers in materials science, spanning such different disciplines as photonics, photovoltaics, and sensing, to biomedical applications.
New chapters on bending and cleaning reflect the changes in the field since the last edition, completing the range of practical knowledge about the processes possible with lasers already familiar to users of this well-known text. Professor Steen's lively presentation is supported by a number of original cartoons by Patrick Wright and Noel Ford, which will bring a smile to your face and ease the learning process. From the reviews: "...well organized, and the text is very practical...The engineering community will find this book informative and useful." (OPTICS AND PHOTONICS NEWS, July/August 2005)
The chapters present the problems of stresses and strains induced in metals and nonmetals in the processes of laser heating, analyze the results, offer the ways of laser treatment that dispense with subsequent machining operations, and describe the basic approaches to increase the strength of materials during laser heating. Other topics include the practical methods of implementing the processes of laser welding, cutting, hardening, alloying, and cladding (hardfacing). Basics of Laser Material Processing is designed for scientific workers and for those students in senior- and graduate-level courses.
