Abstract Abstract Laser processing of engineering materials is a well-established process. Latest developments in laser sources offer enormous flexibility but also present challenges. Laser material interaction regulates the material removal process and correct laser parameters are key to a successful processing. Complex micro cavities can be produced by material removal in a layer by layer fashion. Large number of laser and material characteristics influence the process but a single crater formation governs the process as material is removed by overlapping single craters.
