Abstract

A design, construction and operation of a stable frequency linetuned, plane-polarized CW CO2 laser are described. The maximum output power of 30W for 10P(20) V-R transitions was obtained. The line tuning of laser wavelength was achieved by using 100line/mm grating. This laser was stabilized by holding the laser cavity fixed using a low thermal expansion quartz rod.

Abstract

In this investigation, the anisotropic extent of HAZ in laser grooving of fiber-reinforced plastic was studied by constructing an analytical model then comparing results obtained with the experimental. A principle of three main components of anisotropic thermal conductivity was considered, and then the equation governing thermal conduction process was transformed to a form similar to that of isotropic material. An analysis, based on a three-dimensional anisotropic thermal conductivity and a moving heat source, was presented to predict HAZ extent in laser grooving of fiber-reinforced plastic. This analysis included prediction of HAZ extent when grooving is parallel to the principal axes and when it is off-axes. The HAZ extent was determined depending on temperature difference relative to matrix combustion or char temperature. With respect to survey of previous works, this investigation is a novel attempt to analyze the extent of HAZ in FRP grooving by a CW CO2 laser.

Abstract

In this work, a CO2 laser system of five discharge stages was designed, constructed and operated with longitudinal electrical discharge and axial gas flow. The system was characterized throughout measuring output laser power as function of output coupler reflectivity, length of discharge tube and cooling water temperature. The maximum output power delivered was 135W at the TEM10 mode.
