    The feasibility of the laser surface alloying of magnesium base alloys with aluminum, copper, nickel and silicon has been shown in this work. By laser alloying with these elements, using a 5 kW CO2‐laser, the hardness of several magnesium base alloys can be increased to values above 250 HV0.1. Melted depths from 700–1200 μm and alloying contents from 15–55 at % were achieved. The wear resistance of ...

    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...

    A new laser cladding technique for producing wear and corrosion resistant surfaces on engineering components is reported. The technique involves the combination of the pre‐placed and injected powder delivery methods for producing clad layers. The clad layers were formed with a pulsed Nd:YAG laser and optical fibers. The results using a nickel‐based alloy (Hastelloy C) indicate that uniform clad layers in excess of 1 mm in thickness can be achieved in a single pass with 240 W average power incident on the workpiece. The laser beam was delivered through a step‐index glass ...

    Since the discovery of the laser in 1959, a wide variety of lasers have been developed with numerous clinical applications in medicine and surgery. Lasers have had a great impact on the surgical approach to both benign and malignant diseases in Otolaryngology‐Head and Neck Surgery, and have enabled the otolaryngologist to manage diseases in the aerodigestive system primarily through an endoscopic approach. We will summarize the physical properties of the currently used lasers in otolaryngology, as well as their clinical applications.

    Laser cladding is an additive manufacturing process in which a laser generates a melt pool on the substrate material while a second material in a powder or wire form is injected into that melt pool. Among all laser manufacturing processes, laser cladding offers the most extensive variety of possibilities to alter a component at its surface. Despite immense potential and advancements, the process model of microstructure evolution and its coupling with macro parameters of the laser cladding process has not been fully developed. To address this...
