Simulating Laser Material Processing using COMSOL Multiphysics
2:00 PM EDT / 1:00 PM CDT / 11:00 AM PDT / 6:00 PM GMT
The transformation of materials using
focused laser beams fundamentally involves multiple physical
phenomena such as optical absorption, heat transfer, structural
mechanics, and material phase transitions. In this webinar we will
describe two examples of laser material processing, resonant IR
laser ablation and laser-based chemical vapor deposition. We use
COMSOL Multiphysics to solve the coupled phenomena that drive
material transformation. In each case, a direct comparison with
experimental results is used to validate the model and optimize
process parameters. The webinar includes a demonstration and
concludes with a Q&A session.
