ABSTRACT. This paper delineates the after effects of low energy Laser shock peening without coating on Nickel-200 specimen. Comparative study of X-Ray Diffraction analysis of the treated specimen with untreated specimen suggests the presence of compressive residual stress and grain refinement. The residual stress analysis was carried out using the sin2 Ψ method of X-ray Diffraction. The results of which indicate compressive residual stress values have increased. The AFM results tell us that there is a considerable increase in the surface roughness after the laser peening process. There is a grain refinement which is also supported by AFM, XRD data. The hardness profile of the material was increased by a substantial amount. The crystalline size and the micro-strain have been calculated for peened and unpeened samples using the Scherrer’s equation from the X-ray diffraction data.
