Abstract
Frequency selected Q-switched e-beam controlled-discharge CO-laser has been researched and developed for surface heat treatment of polymeric materials (poly(ethyleneterephthalate) and nylon) having strong absorption bands near wavelength of approximately 6 micrometers . The laser generates pulses (including short ones with duration of (tau) 0.1 approximately 1 - 10 microsecond(s) ) having different spectral content within 4.9 - 6.5 micrometers spectral range. Different geometry and methods of irradiation were used to process samples with the laser radiation of different temporal, spectral and energy density characteristics. Various types of microstructure were formed on the surfaces of the samples. Experimental conditions corresponding to each type of microstructure were defined. Visual (macro) changes of polymeric material properties (if any) and their correlation with formed microstructures were analyzed.
