Abstract:

Results of a 4-month, experimental study of the interaction betweeen short laser pulses and coatings of paints and water are presented. In particular, objectives of the research include 1 A determination of the fluence levels needed to sustain damagemodification of coatings 2 an investigation of the impulsive loading on the substrate caused by the presence of these coatings and 3 the identification of the basic lasercoating interaction mechanism.
