W/ZrC cermet was successfully fabricated by a Displacive Compensation of Porosity method, and then laser ablation behaviors of W/ZrC cermet under different laser energy and ablation time were studied. Results showed that a small ablation pit was produced on the W/ZrC cermet during the laser ablation, and depth of the ablation pit increased with increasing laser power and prolonging ablation time. Besides, several homocentric loops which had different kinds and microstructures of oxides were formed around the ablation pit. The volatilization of residual Cu and formation of ZrO2 layer played significant roles in protecting W/ZrC cermet from being further oxidized during the laser ablation.

Key words: W/ZrC cermet, laser ablation, microstructure
