This paper focuses on microstructure evolution in single-crystal alloys processed through scanning laser epitaxy (SLE); a metal powder-bed based additive manufacturing technology aimed at the creation of equiaxed, directionally-solidified or single-crystal structures in nickelbase superalloys. Galvanometer-controlled movements of the laser and high-resolution raster scanning result in improved control over the melting and solidification processes in SLE. Characterization of microstructural… CONTINUE READING
