The Laser processing of advanced metallic materials brings a lot of advantages when compared with the conventional processing routes of metallic materials, such as: increasing of productivity, reduction in operational costs, quality improvement and finishing of products, wider flexibility in production lines and amplifying project possibilities and application opportunities. The surface treatments through Laser that result in phase transformations solid state and the production of coatings for advanced applications in order to improve wear and corrosion resistance, are characterized as one of the main materials processing alternatives that brings together the possibility of obtaining: refined microstructures, metastable, nanocrystalline, quasicrystalline and even amorphous structure, with significant improvements in properties of metallic alloys when compared with commercial alloys or their crystalline version slowly solidified though conventional metallurgical processing routes. The objective of this project is the obtaining of amorphizable and nanocrystalline multicomponent Fe-based metallic alloys through laser surface treatment and laser cladding in alloys processed by spray forming in the different products obtained: deposit and overspray powder, respectively. The execution of this proposal through collaborations with experienced research groups in the theme "laser surface treatment of amorphizable and nanocrystalline multicomponent Fe-based metallic alloys" is associated to the possibility de stabilish a new research area at the Department of Materials Engineering (DEMa/UFSCar). The microstructure characterization of these materials processed by laser will be facilitated due to the infrastructure offered by the laboratory of structural characterization (LCE), the center of characterization and development of materials (CCDM) together with the research labs of DEMa/UFSCar and our research group (Amorphous, Nanocrystalline and Metastable Metallic Alloys). The main techniques used in this work will be: X-ray Diffraction (XRD), thermal analysis (DSC/DTA/TG), scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM/STEM/HRTEM) coupled to energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), besides measurement of mechanical properties such as Vickers microhardness.
