Cleaning a Grill with a Laser, Very Cool.

Using a laser to clean a BBQ or grill may seem like overkill but there are many good reasons to do so, ah and there is also the fact that it is really cool. Technically the process is called laser ablation and it uses very specialized high powered lasers to instantly vaporize rust and debris.

There are a many ways to return that factory fresh sparkle to metal but laser ablation has many unique advantages including; low running costs, it is gentle on the material being cleaned and it is a solvent free process. The ablation process is also very controllable with precise control of the ablation rate, the depth that is vaporized, just don’t point it at anything you don’t want to disappear.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is yet another very cool use for lasers, now all I need to do is find a laser that can vaporize BBQ gunk and we might have the perfect BBQ cleaner. Sit back relax and prepare to be amazed by the power of a hand held laser.

Love Water Hate Water, Laser Etched Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Materials…

University of Rochester researchers have discovered and demonstrated the power of tiny patterns, especially when etched by massively powerful lasers. The nano scale patterns have in this case been put to use producing darkness as well as attracting and repelling water. Patterns that produce the strangest and most spectacular side-effects.

The process developed by Chunlei Guo and his team requires no coating or special treatment of the surface, just put the metal in front of the Femto laser and fire away. The lasers extremely fast and intense bursts alter the metal itself, creating micro and nano sized patterns of structures deep into the metal.
