Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper reports on a method of experimentally evaluating the energy balance associated with the laser machining of decorative ceramic tile. Changes in power distribution with cutting speed and tile thickness are presented, together with data on absorptivity and cutting efficiency for such materials. In addition, an experimental technique is detailed that enables analysis and evaluation of primary power loss and beam dispersion.
