In transverse flow lasers, the laser beam axis is orthogonal to the discharge and gas flow as shown in Fig. 2. The laser gas is also cooled by circulation of the gas flow. This type of laser can achieve the highest laser power, although the beam quality is lower than the fast axis flow laser. Industrial lasers up to 50 kW are available. Slab lasers are classified as slow flow lasers. The laser medium is excited in a narrow space between two wide water-cooled electrodes as shown in Fig. 3. The wide discharge area and efficient heat removal through the wide electrodes enable high power and high beam quality laser beam to be generated.
2003). This abnormal weld cross section is caused by a keyhole perturbation. During welding, the inert gas enters the keyhole from the back surface and expands in the keyhole as shown in the x-ray transmission image of Fig. 25(b). This local expansion of the keyhole forms the abnormal cross section, leading to occurrence of the solidification crack. , 2004). 8 mass% of aluminium is enough to prevent the porosity during the full penetration welding of 15 mm thick carbon steels as shown in Fig.
This temperature is similar to the peak temperature of argon TIG arc. If we know the electron temperature distribution as shown in Fig. 12, we can calculate the electron density with the assumption of LTE and the absorption coefficient using Eq. 4] at any part of the plasma. As a result, we can estimate the absorptivity of the plasma under various welding conditions. , 1999). The absorptivity gradually increases with the laser power as shown in Fig. 13. The flow rate of the shielding gas does not exert a great influence on the absorptivity.
