This team is to perform research work in the laser-based manufacturing and materials processing area, such as additive manufacturing involving ceramics and/or other topic(s). The research work is to address the technical challenges in the laser-based manufacturing process(es) and improve related fundamental understandings through experimental studies, workpiece material characterizations, theoretical analysis, and/or computational modeling. One potential topic is laser-based additive manufacturing involving ceramics that have many important current and/or future potential industrial applications.
Relevant technologies: 3D printing, Additive Manufacturing, Laser-based manufacturing
It is preferred that the students should have strong hands-on skills, material science and/or thermal backgrounds. Students will receive training on laser safety and laser operation before they do laser experiments, and hence a prerequisite skill of laser operation is NOT required.
