Laser shock processing (LSP) has been proposed as a competitive alternative technology to classical treatments for improving fatigue and wear resistance of metals. We present a configuration and results in the LSP concept for metal surfaces treatments in underwater laser irradiation at 1064 nm. A convergent lens is used to deliver 2.5 J/cm2 in a 8 ns laser FWHM pulse produced by a Q-switch Nd:YAG Laser. Experimental results using a pulse density of 5 000 pulses/cm2 and spots of 0.8 mm in diameter in 1040 steel samples are presented. Compressive residual stress distribution as a function of depth is assessed by the hole drilling method. High level compressive residual stresses are produced using 1064 nm wavelength. This method can be applied for surface treatment of final metal products.
