The Advanced Laser Processing and Sensors (ALPS) Lab provides multiple lasers with different wavelengths, pulse lengths and power; optical hardware, optics, detectors and other support equipment for exploring laser machining, cutting, deposition, ablation and desorption for various high value added materials and structures.

Current projects include precise cutting of graphene sheets for various applications (AE), laser acoustic testing of concrete (CE) and developing a new laser ultrasonic testing method (ME).
