    Laser safety standards are detailed technical documents arising from the complexity of the different mechanisms, depending on the parameters of the laser beam, by which lasers interact with living tissue. As a result, their interpretation by non‐expert laser users, who are concerned about safety issues, can cause many difficulties. Based on experience in advising industrial and medical laser users, we have developed a primer which (i) provides step‐by‐step guidance in the interpretation and use of the laser saf...

    This paper reviews progress over the last five years in the field of laser surface modification of titanium alloys. The authors analyze the effect of new laser technologies and new materials as tools for improving surface properties—specifically, biocompatibility and resistance to wear, corrosion, and high temperatures. The authors discuss the effect of laser processing parameters on the microstructure and compare the results obtained by various researchers. Therefore, an overview of the difficulties involved in the laser processing of titanium is provided with a di...

    An off‐axial gas jet has been developed that has the potential to extend the laser's effectiveness by improving the rate at which parts can be machined, producing high‐quality surfaces, enhancing the cutting thickness, and adding to the range of materials that can be machined. In laser cutting, an erosion front (liquid–gas region) forms at the momentary end of the cut. Laser heating, exothermic reactions and shear force between the gas flow and the molten layer dictate the material removal rates. The principle of the off‐axi...

    Laser aided direct metal/material deposition process builds metal parts layer-by-layer directly from the computer aided design representation. Success of this technology in the die and tool industry depends on the parts quality to be achieved. To get designed geometric dimensions and material properties, delicate control of the process variables such as laser power, spot diameter, traverse speed, and powder mass flow rate is critical. With a closed loop optical height control system, the dimensional accuracy was achieved ...

    Previous studies of laser forming have been focused on understanding the laser forming mechanisms, investigating the effects of important laser process parameters on deformed shape, and modeling the forming process. Although microstructures and mechanical properties have received some attention, no work has addressed corrosion behavior of laser-formed components. However, laser forming is a thermal process with substantial thermal cycles required; sensitization of microstr...

    Lasers find application in numerous areas of criminalistics, such as fiber analysis, document examination and serology. Their widest use, however, is in detection of latent fingerprints. Several routine procedures for obtaining laser&hyphen;excited fingerprint fluorescence on a range of surfaces have been developed. However, many surfaces fluoresce so strongly themselves that they are not amenable to these procedures. Time&hyphen;resolved luminescence imaging is being investigated to permit detection of fingerprints on such surfaces.
