Abstract

Results of the experimental and theoretical investigations of CO2 laser-engraved cylinders are presented. The processed surfaces of test samples are examined by a phase-stepping laser interferometer, digital microscope, and computer-controlled profilometer. Fourier analysis is made on the patterns parallel to the axis of the laser-scribed test ceramic cylinders. The problem of the visually observed banding is discussed.
