Abstract
The proposed effort will investigate and develop a laser-scopic tool that will provide earlier and improved capabilities for corrosion-detection, -removal, -cleaning and -repair due to galvanic couples in hard-to-access areas, without damaging the underlying substrate or adjacent features. The key focus areas include system definition, power-delivery, mitigation/elimination of splatter and debris, and final integration/design.
