This paper investigates the effect of laser treatment on alumina-TiO2 coatings deposited by detonation spraying. It describes the changes observed in the microstructure and hardness of the remelted layers. The originally lamellar structure is transformed into a fine, pore-free columnar structure in which the grains are oriented perpendicular to the interface between the layer and substrate. The remelted zones contain alpha-aluminum oxide as the main phase and are characterized by high microhardness, although a few defects were observed on the periphery. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
