Laser machining is an emerging area with a wide variety of applications, ranging from bulk machining in metal forming to micromachining and microstructuring in electronics and biomedical applications. The unique properties of lasers allow for use in flexible manufacturing techniques such as laser-assisted mechanical machining (LAM) and laser-assisted chemical machining (LCM). Laser Fabrication and Machining of Materials provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles and emerging applications of lasers related to material removal and forming processes, and also provides a link between advanced materials and advanced processing and manufacturing techniques.
