Aims and scope

Lasers in Manufacturing and Materials Processing provides an international forum for the interchange of information on the development and application of laser technology in manufacturing and materials processing. Emphasis is placed on contributions dealing with the innovative use of lasers in manufacturing and materials processing, enhancement of fundamental understanding on laser-matter interaction, numerical modeling, novel experimental methods and results, practical use of laser beams and devices, and new theoretical foundations for experimental methods.

The scope of the journal includes, but is not limited to:

Laser-based Materials Processing
Laser applications in Manufacturing
Fundamentals dealing with laser-material interaction
In-process measurement during laser-material interaction
Modeling of laser-based materials processing and manufacturing processes
Hybrid processes involving lasers
Laser based manufacturing systems
Control of laser materials processing and manufacturing
Laser Remote Sensing and Environmental Monitoring
