Paper Abstract

The design, fabrication and testing of a diffractive optical element for use in laser materials processing described. A 30mm diameter, Gaussian profile energy distribution from a 5KW carbon dioxide laser has been transformed into a rectangular energy distribution 6mm by 8mm at a distance of 500mm from the optic.
