Paper Abstract

The direct or waveguide transmitted beam shape of carbon dioxide laser was recorded by irradiating perspex blocks. The influence of waveguides materials, geometry, defects and roughness on the crater produced in the blocks was observed. Fused silica transmitted beams are narrower and sharper than the plastic transmitted beams, and the energy distribution can be clearly observed. The main effect on the beam shape comes from the wall roughness. The moving tip method was applied for non-destructive attenuation measurements.
