This paper reports laser remelting of crystalline Cu based alloys in order to produce amorphous layer on the surface. The as prepared Cu based master alloy ingots were imbedded in a metallic sinking with Wood metal to assure the good thermal conductivity during the laser treatment. The laser remelting of a thin surface layer and a subsequent rapid cooling of it was performed using impulse and continuous mode of Nd: YAG laser. In respectively the impulse mode the laser power and the interaction time were 1.5; 2 kW and 20÷100 ms. In the continuous mode the laser power was 2 kW, and the laser scan speed was 80÷120 mm/s. The characterization of the microstructure of surface layer was performed by XRD, scanning electron microscopy and microhardness measurements.
