    Industrial lasers are high power pieces of equipment that occasionally function under undesirable operating conditions. For example, the performance of a transverse&hyphen;flow d.c.&hyphen;excited gas laser can be adversely affected by many factors such as electrode arcing, poor lens and mirror cleanliness, focusing problems, improper gas mixture composition, poor gas quality, poor beam stability, poor beam path cleanliness, operator error, poor maintenance, poor chiller water temperature and flow rate stability, and improper laser beam ramp&hyphen;in/ramp&hyphen;out rates. Many of these factors which occur in ...

    Optical triangulation is a very old method of determining absolute distance to an object. In recent years laser range sensors utilizing this principle have seen growing use, particularly in the auto industry. More accurate versions are being employed for dimensional inspection operations where the sensor is often mounted on a coordinate measuring machine. Such a system offers the potential for rapid non&hyphen;contact dimensional metrology. However, there are several factors which must be taken int...

    The most recent amendments to the Federal performance standard for laser products became effective in 1985 and 1986. At this time, the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) is making public its intention to amend the standard again and is inviting suggestions and comments. The amendments that are now under consideration are based upon advances in the sciences of photobiology and hazard evaluation. They are also intended to harmonize with developments in international standards for similar products, and to cla...

    Research carried out in Cuba has led to the design and construction of automatic polarimeters that use the He&hyphen;Ne laser as a luminous source and work on a magnetooptic principle of measurement. Physical and chemical investigations including the use of the He&hyphen;Ne laser as a light source are discussed. The principle of measurement for the design and construction of polarimeters, resulting in three different types of these instruments, is described. Finally, applications for magnetooptic polarimetry are described,...

    We have developed a laser hermetic sealing technique that combines nickel plating with laser welding for copper and copper alloy bellows for general purpose large&hyphen;scale computers. Laser welding of copper has been difficult because of copper's high thermal conductivity and reflectivity. However, laser welding nickel&hyphen;plated copper results in deep penetration. To avoid corrosion induced at the dissimilar metal contact between nickel and copper, the nickel&hyphen;plated copper was heat&hyphen;treated bef...

    Laser-induced surface modification of aluminum alloy 2024-T3 was investigated as laser intensity dependence of surface composition and patterning related to electrochemical characteristics using techniques of environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM), potentiodynamic scan, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Analysis of surface composition using ESEM and EIS indicated that laser fluences in a range of 1.1–1.3 J/cm2 were found to preferentially reduce the copper concentration in the alloy surf...
