Abstract [en]

A special case of an interrupted superheated process was developed, governed by the ablation pressure of a boiling melt, induced by a pulsed Nd:YAG-laser. A kind of cutting process was carried out, but at very low speed to generate a large melt pool that can be well studied. The interaction zone was observed by high speed imaging, with and without illumination. When switching the laser pulse on or off, different dynamic phenomena can be clearly observed, like drilling into a bulk of melt, breaking of a melt bridge, controlled pushing of the melt pool, waves running down, all driven by boiling. After the pulse, the melt smoothens and oscillates and is dragged back upwards by the surface tension forces from the melt shape curvature, ending in a torus-like equilibrium shape. The fundamental understanding that was generated could be applied to improve processes like keyhole laser welding, laser remote fusion cutting or laser drilling
