    It is known that ionizing radiation (x ray, gamma rays, and electrons) can induce numerous changes in the physical properties of glasses. The most obvious effect is visible coloration, which is caused by the accumulation of color centers (defects) in the irradiated volume. The application of such induced color centers has prompted a renewed interest since they can be generated and bleached reversibly. We present results on laser-induced color centers in different types of glasses using picosecond laser pulses. By applyi...

    In an experimental investigation of laser–metal interaction, one of the important parameters is the propagation velocity of the liquid–vapor interface. The quantity appears as a direct result of the theoretical examination of the interaction and may be used to test the accuracy of the theory. Consequently, in the present study, the nature of the interaction mechanism between a pulsed laser beam and metals is examined using streak photographs of the ejecta from four metals: titanium, tantalum, nickel, and EN58B stainless steel. It...

    Laser beam transmission welding is an innovative and promising technology for many industries such as the automotive, electronic, and medical industry. Extension to application of this technology to wood components makes it also interesting for the woodworking and furniture industry. Therefore, several investigations in the field of welding of fiber reinforced thermoplastic and wood composites with polymers have been carried out. Focus is given to the determination of the weldability and weld ...

    The subject of the research is mechanism of melt removal and striated roughness generation. Being the main obstacle limiting laser cutting process performance, these phenomena are widely discussed. Available theoretical descriptions are not conclusive, as they have nothing to be verified with. High temperatures and narrowness of the kerf severely limit visual access at a real facility. Observation will become possible if one wall of the kerf is made of glass. This possibility is utilized in present experiments, which reproduce the process at low tem...

    This investigation applies sonic and supersonic coaxial and off‐axis nozzles to the cutting of mild steel sheet of 1–4 mm thickness. A 1.5 kW CW CO2 laser is used with nitrogen as the assist gas. Sonic coaxial cutting is compared to that of off‐axis nozzles, which vary in orientation from 20–60° behind the laser axis and in exit Mach number from 1 to 2.4. Results show a 50% increase in maximum cutting speed at approximately a 40° off‐axis nozzle angle. In com...
