Abstract

The basic physical effects of laser radiation on opaque mediums — primarily metals — are first described. CO2 laser heat treatment and welding are covered and various thermophysical properties related to laser effects are considered. Data on drilling of materials are given and the motion of the liquid phase during formation of a hole is analysed, together with factors which affect drilling and precision and reproducibility of laser machining. Changes in metal structure and properties in the zones affected by laser radiation are covered, including the effects of the Q-switched laser radiation on metals. Appendices include improvements in laser drilling techniques, effect of atmosphere on laser machining, surface hardening of machine parts, conical lens for drilling of large-diameter holes, and cutting of non-metallic materials with CO2 laser beams.
