The article discusses the applications of cold spray (CS) in laser based technologies. It mentions that CS deposits coatings without melting the powder particles, thus reducing the problems caused by laser alloying and cladding. CS also produces coatings and 3D objects, and can deposit pure metals and composite coatings. Due to its cold deposition mechanism, the author states that CS offers low oxide content, low thermally induced stresses, and the ability to coat a variety of substances.
