Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop and optimize a flash abrasive-waterjet for precision machining of delicate materials. The use of water in a phase change mode will offer advantages over abrasive waterjets, that can damage delicate materials, and liquid nitrogen abrasive cryogenic jets, that require expensive equipment.
