The Influence of Laser Parameters on the Surface Processing of Materials

Abstract

YAG laser was selected in this work to provide energetic treatment of PEEK surfaces, in order to inves-<lb>tigate its effectiveness in increasing the performance of lap shear adhesive joints. The laser was used to<lb>irradiate the PEEK, by rastering a spot of ca. 1 mm diameter across a large area. The resulting surfaces<lb>were characterised using single… (More)
