This book is a reprint of the Special Issue Surface Treatment by Laser-Assisted Techniques that was published in

Chemistry & Materials Science
The book “Surface Treatment by Laser-Assisted Techniques” presents state-of-the-art research applications of lasers for surface modification. Applications in a broad spectrum of fields are presented: the aircraft and automotive sector, the manufacturing industry, sensor development, electronics, biomedical engineering, or the energy sector. Several radiation sources are included, from pulsed lasers in the visible and near-infrared regions to continuous-wave mid-infrared laser sources. The different chapters of the book “Surface Treatment by Laser-Assisted Techniques” cover laser texturing at nanoscale and microscale for modification of hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, and ice nucleation; the production of palladium, platinum and silver nanoparticles for sensor applications; the texturization of composite bioceramics for improved fixation in bone prosthesis; the surface texturization of natural ceramic materials by scanned laser radiation; the laser ablation of interfaces to enhance adhesion in dissimilar joints; the analysis of material thermoelastic response; and the production of highly polished topographies in pulsed laser surface modification. Moreover, the production of high-entropy alloy/diamond composite coatings, the modellization of the gas-powder injection, and the generation of thermal barrier coatings by laser cladding are reported in the last chapters of this book.
