Abstract:

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in laser beam applications in material processes such as laser machining, laser surface treatment and laser induced chemical and electrochemical processes. This report deals primarily with laser induced selective high rate chemical deposition on metallic and polymeric substrates without masking. The experimental system used to carry out deposition processes consisted of laser beam facility, X-Y computerized table, electrolytic cell with or without counter and reference electrode and a computer. The laser systems used were C. W. Argon laser and Q switch NdYAG pulsed laser.
