    The spectral band between 400 and 700 nm is termed “visible” in laser safety standards, this is not the full extent of the visible spectrum. Light, or visible radiation, is that which is perceived by the human eye, and the spectral bandwidth for vision is really larger, extending into what some r...

    This article presents the development of a three-dimensional numerical method for predicting transient geometrical and thermal characteristics of multilayer laser solid freeform fabrication as a function of process parameters and material properties. In the proposed method, the thermal domain is numerically obtained, assuming the interaction between the laser beam and powder stream is to be decoupled. Once the melt pool boundary is obtained, the physical domain is discretized in a cross-se...

    Laser welded die blanks are finding increased usage in many industrial applications. This investigation was undertaken to establish a simplified means of calculating thermal cycles experienced in the fusion and heat affected zones on laser welds typically used in die blank welding. A planar solution domain perpendicular to the direction of travel was selected to simplify the finite element calculations. The resulting calculation technique provided reasonably accurate prediction of the thermal cycles measured by Moon and Metzbower, and the size of fusion zones and heat affected zones o...

    The quality of a laser beam profile and its stability play fundamental roles in laser material processing. Beam reflections may dramatically affect the beam quality under certain material processing conditions. In this study, experiments were carried out to examine the variations of the continuous wave CO2 laser beam profile during the direct metal...

    Nonlinear optics was profoundly influenced by early work of Charles Townes and his group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1961 to 1967. His foundational contribution was the realization that coherent molecular oscillations resulted from stimulated Raman scattering, leading to the introduction of stimulated Brillouin scattering. Self-trapping of light beams and self-steeping of light pulses in nonlinear materials were two other important innovations. Some applications today of these early ideas are outlined.

    A novel localization scheme called laser beam scan localization by combining grid and light (laser) with mobile localization policy for wireless sensor networks is designed. The scheme utilizes a moving location assistant (LA) with a laser beam, through which the deployed area is scanned. The LA sends identities to unknown nodes to obtain the locations of sensor nodes. High localization accuracy can be achieved without the aid of expensive hardware on the sensor nodes, as required by other localization systems...
