Abstract
INVESTIGATE POTENTIAL OF A NOVEL CONCEPT TO GENERATE SPECIFIC WAVELENGTH REGIONS OF HIGH INTENSITY RADIATION AND/OR PLANAR BLAST WAVES TO PRODUCE, ON CLOSE-BY (TARGET) STRUCTURES AND/OR MATERIALS, THE THERMAL AND/OR SHOCK LOADINGS DELIVERED BY SINGLE PULSE OR REPETITIVE PULSE LASERS. THE CONCEPT, IF SUCCESSFUL, COULD APPLY OVER LARGE (ONE FOOT OR MORE) DIAMETER AREAS ON LARGE, SCALABLE STRUCTURES/MATERIAL SAMPLES THE EXACT INTENSITIES, PULSE DURATIONS PRESSURES AND IMPULSES LOADINGS EXPECTED OF THOSE CLASSES OF LASERS CONSIDERED FOR DEW APPLICATIONS, BUT WITH MUCH LESS ENERGY INPUT. ATTRACTIVE COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF SUCH WAVELENGTH-TUNABLE REPPED PULSE RADIATION AND PRESSURE, COATING CURING AND PRESSURE FORMING.
