Laser surface engineering of titanium and its alloys for improved wear, corrosion and high-temperature oxidation resistance

J. Dutta Majumdar; I. Manna    Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India

Abstract

Titanium and its alloys are candidate materials for applications in aerospace and biomedical sectors due to its high strength to weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, and good biocompatibility. However, inadequate wear, corrosion, and high-temperature oxidation resistance properties reduce the service life of the component made of titanium and its alloys, which may be improved by a suitable modification of surface microstructures and/or composition. In the present contribution, the scope of application of laser surface ...
