TY - CHAP A1 - Afia Kouadri-David ED1 - Dan C. Dumitras Y1 - 2012-03-21 PY - 2012 T1 - Welding of Thin Light Alloys Sheets by CO2 Laser Beam: Magnesium Alloys N2 - The present book includes several contributions aiming a deeper understanding of the basic processes in the operation of CO2 lasers (lasing on non-traditional bands, frequency stabilization, photoacoustic spectroscopy) and achievement of new systems (CO2 lasers generating ultrashort pulses or high average power, lasers based on diffusion cooled V-fold geometry, transmission of IR radiation through hollow core microstructured fibers). The second part of the book is dedicated to applications in material processing (heat treatment, welding, synthesis of new materials, micro fluidics) and in medicine (clinical applications, dentistry, non-ablative therapy, acceleration of protons for cancer treatment).
