INTRODUCTION The tasks of creating a linear laser spot with uniform intensity along its length are today frequently asked in many industrial and scientific applications, some of them are mentioned above.

And using various beam shaping Cited by: 3. Shaping laser beams with a Gaussian profile into flat top or Bessel beams is critical for many precise laser applications.

While refractive beam shaping optics are commonly used, reflective beam shapers and axicons eliminate transmission losses and can handle higher power lasers.

They also eliminate chromatic dispersion, making them ideal for. The theory and techniques of laser beam shaping are addressed in the book edited by Dickey and Holswade.l Laser beam shaping techniques can be divided into three broad classes.

Laser beam shaping is an important subject in industrial and medical applications of lasers since different applications may require different laser intensity distributions. The Fraunhofer Institute in Germany has developed a system that quickly oscillates the beam in specific patterns as it cuts, welds, or otherwise processes material.

These patterns have the effect of “shaping” a laser beam, allowing the technician to tailor the beam’s shape to fit the application. Following up on their well-received first book, Laser Beam Shaping: Theory and Techniques, Sandia National Laboratories researchers Fred Dickey and Scott Holswade have edited (with David Shealy of.

The edge diffraction effect has been significantly reduced.
