Laser Cleaning/Ablation Webinar
04/19/2018 14:00 to 04/19/2018 15:00 (America/Montreal)
Host: Rez Mani did a M.Eng in Engineering Physics focused on optical properties of semiconductors from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. This followed by a Ph.D. in Earth and Space Science focused on satellite optical instrumentation from York University in Toronto, Ontario. After working in industry for 10 years where he participated in a multitude of optical/laser/spectroscopic projects, he returned to York University as a contract faculty and a research associate in 2011. He has also worked for Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant since 2011 and as an application scientist since 2017.
The webinar gives an introduction to principles of laser ablation with particular emphasis on laser cleaning application. The pros and cons of using laser cleaning as compared to other cleaning methods are described. The parameters of importance as far as the laser and the materials to be worked on are considered. Finally, a few examples of laser cleaning are given including a video demonstration of the laser cleaning system by Allied Scientific Pro in a nuclear decontamination facility.
Date: Thursday, April 19, 2018 ( 50 seats only available first come first serve)
Time: 02:00 PM EST, Eastern Standard Time
Host: Rez Mani did his PhD from York University in 2001 in satellite spectroscopic instrumentation. He worked in the industry for nearly 9 years, during which he participated in many optical, laser and spectroscopic projects where he used many different types of high power lasers such as Nd:YAG, CO2 and Ti:Sapphire. He returned to York University in 2011 as a researcher and a contract faculty. He currently teaches the course "Atmospheric Pollution" for the department of Natural Science at York University. He has also been collaborating with Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant for more than 6 years.
