Special Issue "Laser Shock Processing on Metal"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2016)
Since its invention in the late 1960’s, and the pioneering work on metal strengthening in USA during the late 1970's, Laser Shock Processing has become a reliable surface treatment for improving the mechanical or corrosion resistance of metallic materials. This Special Issue on LSP aims to provide a rather exhaustive and up-to-date state of the art on LSP. Based upon recent work, the Special Issue covers the following fields: the physics of the process and shock loading conditions, the surface modifications induced by LSP, the modeling of LSP, the fatigue and corrosion properties of peened surfaces, the industrial applications of LSP, and novel applications for laser-induced shock waves.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Abstract: This study investigated 355nm UV-pulsed laser shock processing of a 150 µm thick film of polypropylene filled with copper particles. Generally, processing polypropylene with a low beam energy UV laser is difficult because the material’s absorption rate is less than 1% in UV wavelengths. However, polypropylene filled with copper particles is easily processed by UV laser, because copper has a UV absorption rate of more than 70%. The absorbed heat of the copper is transmitted to the polypropylene, accomplishing the machining process. Experimental results were observed while changing the laser processing speed rate. Also, the mechanism of the experimental results was investigated theoretically and experimentally.
