Applications of laser surface texturing in reducing friction and improving cooking efficiency
"Laser micromachining using ultrashort pulses plays a vital role in today's commercial and industrial applications. The laser surface texturing is a laser micromachining technique to create array of bumps/holes/grooves. The laser surface texturing is a novel technique to improve the surface tribology. In this paper the laser surface texturing was done using a Q-switched pulsed laser with 30ns FWHM pulse duration and 335nm wavelength on AISI 304 grade stainless steel samples...The results show that there is a significant reduction in the friction and increase in material lifetime and lubricant rheology with the textured sample"--Abstract, leaf iii.
