    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 ...


  • JLA Vol:21 Iss:1 (Visualization of events inside kerfs during laser cutting of fusible metal)

    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...

    The additive manufacturing process selective laser melting (SLM) can be used to directly produce functional components made out of metal. During the construction process, however, thermally induced residual stress occurs due to the layered build-up and the local input of energy by means of a focused laser beam, which can lead to distortion of the component or sections of the component itself....

    The optical near fields in close vicinity to plasmonic nanoscale objects show a considerable enhancement of the electrical field and are localized to dimensions much less than the wavelength of light. The authors show that an ablation process caused by the near-field enhancement of femtosecond laser pulses pattern the substrate...
