Title: TEA CO2-laser treatment of coated and corroded metals
Authors: Cottam, Christopher A.
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: © C.A. Cottam
Abstract: A selection of corroded, painted and lacquered metals have been subjected to high-powered, pulsed TEA C02-laser radiation to investigate self-limiting cleaning and treatment processes. Changes in the surface chemistry were observed and recorded using a variety of surface analysis techniques including X-ray Powder Diffraction, Auger Electron Spectroscopy and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy. Changes in surface appearance were recorded using colour macro-photography and Scanning Electron Microscopy. The effects of both plasma and sub-plasma laser fluences were investigated. [Continues.]
