Investigation of Surface Treatment Method by High-Speed Scanning of Single-Mode Fiber Laser with MOPA
A newly surface treatment method was proposed by the combination of the high-speed laser scanning with Galvano scanner and the single-mode pulsed fiber laser with Master Oscillator Power Amplifier, and various periodic structures could be formed by this technique. The surface roughness of irradiated area increased almost proportionally with increasing the number of laser scan, and it could be controlled by the number of scan. The repellency of surface could be increased by the laser irradiation compared to that of ground surface under nitrogen atmosphere condition, while the hydrophilic property of surface could be improved by the laser scanning under air atmosphere condition. Moreover, it was found that the corrosion resistance of the surface could be improved by laser irradiation.
