New Paper on Laser Annealing of Cold Rolled Steel

A new paper is published in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A, with the title Microstructure and Property Modifications of Cold Rolled IF Steel by Local Laser Annealing. The work investigates the possibilities in achieving very local microstructure and property modifications by laser annealing of cold rolled IF steel. It is shown that this is a promising method for making functionally graded steels with high precision.
