This research aims to develop a micro features manufacturing method on stainless steel by LASER shockwave forming process. The relationship between LASER intensity, pulse number and the microstructure formed during the process is investigated. In a certain range, LASER can vaporize the coating on the material foil and result in a plasma shock wave. The pressure created by the shock wave will form a dome structure on the sheet regardless of the LASER beam shape. [2nd Award]
