Laser peening without coating (LPwC) has been applied to water-immersed materials using a water-penetrable light of a Q-switched and frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser. Compressive residual stress of several hundred MPa was introduced at the surface of the materials. High-cycle fatigue (HCF) properties were evaluated through rotating-bending or push-pull type testing for an austenitic stainless steel (SUS316L), a titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) and a cast aluminum alloy (AC4CH). LPwC prolonged the fatigue lives significantly, in spite of the increase in surface roughness ascribed to the ablative interaction of laser pulses with the materials.
