About this book


Based on the current state of the art Marcus Lau demonstrates an improved experimental design for defined laser irradiation of particles in liquid environment. The experimental results achieved with the designed reactor demonstrate how particle properties can be modified by defined laser energy dose input. By utilizing different model materials new insights into laser processing of particles in liquids are gained that allow an enhanced process understanding.
