Topic Collection Information

High precision, high quality machining techniques are the need of the day, as there is an increase in customer demand for customised multi-functional controlled surfaces having intricate geometric features, spanning from macro to nano scale. Though there are different non-traditional manufacturing processes, laser based technology has gained wide acceptance owing to its unique capability to process any material within short span of time with higher dimensional control. Lasers are currently applied in many important fields such as aeronautic, semiconductor, astronautic, automobile, marine etc. Ultra-fast lasers are the recent classification of laser based manufacturing technology, which allows more precise control over feature dimension due to non-thermal ablation characteristics. Worldwide numerous research works are ongoing in the domain of advanced lasers to understand the fundamental physics during laser-matter interaction at femtosecond regime thereby improving the process capabilities.

The main focus of this special issue is to establish a unique forum for discussing the recent advancements in the area of Advanced laser Manufacturing. This will be the first ever attempt to showcase various novel research works carried out in the area of Advanced Lasers and its applications in various engineering fields. The research works published in this special issue will be helpful for the research community including scholars, faculties, industrialists etc. to understand the recent trends happening in the area of advanced laser based manufacturing.
