The effect of laser shock processing (LSP) on the microstructure and
mechanical properties of the low carbon (0.04 wt % C) steel was studied.
was performed with a 1.054 ^m wavelength Ndrphosphate laser operating in a
pulse mode (600 ps duration and up to 200 J energy with a 3 mm diameter
beam) with power densities above 10* * W/cmA Shock waves were generated
by volume expansion of the plasma formed when the material was laser
Maximum shock wave intensities were obtained by not using a
When an energy-absorbing black paint coating was
used, the specimen surface yielded LSP-induced deformation without melting.
The maximum pressure we were able to generate was approximately 2.5 GPa.
The rise-time was about ...
