This research concentrates on the structural crystallographic properties in laser assisted and mechanically deformed shapes within hexagonal closed packed (HCP) material. This thesis explores a new ‘challenge and opportunity’ for lasers in the field of manufacturing processing, i.e. using a laser as an innovative tool for materials forming purposes. Indeed the laser have been used before as a sophisticated heat source for manufacturing products but the processing-structure-property relationships have been largely neglected. Here, we present a detailed and in-depth study of the structure-performance relationships in laser assisted and mechanically deformed advanced materials.
