Surface Treatment through Laser Shock Processing Improves Wear Resistance of Metals

Surface Treatment through Laser Shock Processing Improves Wear Resistance of Metals

Scientists at the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) have proved the efficacy of using laser shock processing (LSP) technique for surface treatment in improving the corrosion, wear and crack propagation resistance of metals. This technique was found to be particularly useful for extending their useful life of aluminum alloys, stainless steels, and titanium. The ability of the laser shock processing technique in incorporating favorable surface properties increases the scope for potential applications in material processing in the nuclear, automotive, aeronautics, and biomedical industry.
