- laser shock peening (LSP),
- laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) or
- laser micromachining with the PERLA® C laser or Pharos.
Last year, for example, researchers Ebrahim Asadi and Michael Fitzmayer from the University of Memphis used Open Access to our laboratories to investigate the interaction between laser shock peening (LSP) and additive manufacturing of titanium. By combining these methods, they aim to remove surface roughness and minimize the amount of defects near the surface to increase the fatigue life of the material. See what they have to say about their experience with the Open Access programme at the HiLASE Centre.
