As featured in the LIA TODAY By Liliana Caldero Graphene – it’s the two-dimensional (2D) allotrope of carbon atoms that ignited the imaginations of researchers across the globe. Heralded as a ‘miracle material’, its potential seemed limitless and it was predicted to usher in the next generation of technology. Flexible, stronger than steel, transparent, lightweight, […]
Researchers at Arizona State University have created white laser light with an array of semiconductor lasers in a compact arrangement. The project helps pave the way toward better lighting and light-based wireless communication, as white lasers are more luminous and energy efficient than LEDs. ASU researchers created a novel nanosheet — a thin layer of […]
Two weeks ago today, the sixth-annual Laser Additive Manufacturing Workshop opened in Houston with a riveting keynote by GE Aviation’s Todd Rockstroh. Setting an attendance record, LAM 2014 closed the following day with a lively Q&A session on the qualities and varieties of AM alloys for powder-bed and powder-fed applications. It’s always illuminating to go […]
Characterization and Compositional Study of Fibre Laser Processed Engineering Ceramics laser processing can be a superior technique applicable to engineering ceramics such as glazing for improving the surface finish, aesthetics and enhancing the ceramics (component) functional life, providing that the effects of the laser/ceramic material interaction are better understood.
