By Andrew Dunn Lasers have been used for many years to transform surface properties, including both texture and hardness, for a wide range of applications. For example, the ability to create tailored texture and hardness properties means that the frictional properties of a surface can be modified. Together with colleagues at Heriot-Watt, SPI Lasers and […]
