Spatter observed in laser powder bed fusion has different particle morphologies, sizes and features specific to its formation mechanism and alloy composition. However, it has been observed that organized features on selected spatter particles, such as lens shaped spots and related surface configurations, have similarities among different alloy systems used in PBF. This research characterizes spatter with organized surface features across multiple alloy systems and develops a hypothesis for its formation.
