The applications oflasers in the processing of metals, ceramics, and semiconductors range from surface glazing of thin films on semiconductors to thick surface cladding on metals. Lasers have the unique capability of rapid heating, melting, and quenching of the substrate, which results in the formation of new engineering materials with metastable microstructures. This article describes the microstructural evolution of laser-glazed and laser-clad alloys treated with a pulse or continuous-wave CO2 laser.
