Abstract

Lecture covers a brief history of lasers and the important beam parameters for manufacturing applications. It introduces the main laser types that are appropriate for manufacturing: carbon dioxide lasers, Nd YAG, Diode and fibre lasers, excimer lasers. It then looks at applications to different products and also micro-engineering
