    Laser metal deposition (LMD) is used in industry to coat, additive manufacture, and/or repair high value metal components through deposition and laser induced melting of powder delivered in a gas stream. This study relates to the production of three-dimensional Inconel 625 components by LMD. After LMD, a dense cellular – dendritic structure containing carbides of the type MC, M23C6, and M6C has been detected by x-ray diffr...


  • JLA Vol:17 Iss:2 (Improved adsorption of human plasma fibronectin on magnesia partially stabilized zirconia (MgO&ndash;PSZ) bioceramic resulting from CO<sub>2</sub> laser irradiation)

    The adsorption of proteins onto a biomaterial surface from the surrounding fluid phase is rapid, with the surface properties of the biomaterial determining the type, amount, and conformation of the adsorbed proteins. Magnesia partially stabilized zirconia (MgO–PSZ), a bioinert ceramic used at the high-load bearing sites, does not naturally form a direct bond with bone. It is believed that a favorable adsorption of the fibronectin could promote cell adhesion and subsequently the bonding between the...

    Laser shock processing (LSP) consists of irradiating a metallic target with a short (about 20 ns) and intense (>1013W m−2) laser light in order to generate, through a high pressure surface plasma (>1 GPa), a plastic deformation and a surface strengthening within materials. This paper initially reviews the physical processes involved in the analytical modeling of the generation pressure mechanism in a confined plasma regime. Limiting factors such as the dielectric breakdown in the confining medium are also discussed together with current research directions aimed...

    Laser-based instruments are used in areas where coal dust ignition presents a safety hazard. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Pittsburgh Research Laboratory (NIOSH, PRL) is conducting a study to help determine when an optical beam may be considered a potential ignition source in underground coal mines or coal storage facilities. Researchers conducted experiments to determine threshold igniting powers for Pittsburgh seam bituminous co...

    Particle based near-field nanostructuring is an excellent possibility to overcome the optical diffraction limit in laser based material processing. In the near-field of microspheres which are irradiated with pulsed laser radiation, it is possible to generate nanoholes with diameters below 100 nm using a laser wavelength of 800 nm. To improve this approach, it is possible to position the microparticles with an optical trap to generate arbitrary structure geometries. In this paper, the authors describe the basic principle of optical trap assisted na...


  • JLA Vol:5 Iss:2 (Tutorial Guide: Laser Measurement Techniques Guide For Hazard Evaluation. Part 2)

    Terry Lyon
    Laser Microwave Division, U.S. Army Environmental Hygiene Agency

    A tutorial guide is presented to provide uniform guidance when performing radiometric measurements upon laser systems to perform a hazard evaluation. This guide was requested by and presented to the Department of Defense (DOD) Laser System Safety Working Group (LSSWG) to serve as a standardized method when performing hazard evaluations primarily upon tactical and training military laser systems including laser rangefinders and designators. Technical information is provided in detail to select a suitable detector, preform radiometric measurements, assess laser system pointing errors, calculate laser p...

    The laser-induced thermoelectric voltage (LITV) was observed in La0.9Pr0.1MnO3 thin films grown on the vicinal cut LaAlO3 substrate by pulsed laser deposition for the first time. The detected signals were demonstrated to be originated from the anisotropic Seebeck effect. The largest peak value of the voltage is about 2.4 V, the full width at half-maximum of the temporal voltage peak and the rising time are 300–500 and 40–50 n...
