The purpose of the present work is to provide a description of the microstructure of the top layer of Ti-6Al-4V with embedded SiC particles derived on the basis of SEM, as well as conventional, analytical and high-resolution TEM. Because of the high affinity of Ti for C an exothermic reaction SiC+Ti [RIGHTWARDS ARROW] TiC+Si occurs during laser processing. Particularly, the influence of Si that is released during this reaction on the microstructure formed is scrutinized.
