Abstract
Surface impacts on carbon steel were performed by using a computarized CO2 laser. The distribution of the incident beam was analysed by its effects onto the surface of samples. Laser confocal microscopy (LCM) was used in the optical tomography mode to study the thermal affected areas of the impacts. The aim of this work is to make a quantitative appreciation of the modes present in the laser beam to shape them by numerical control for specific applications, being cutting and hardening the more interested processes.
