Paper Abstract

Laser beam characteristics related with the design of laser engraving systems combining scanning of a material surface together with mask projection techniques are studied in this paper. The laser beam intensity distributions have been displayed for different positions of the mask in the optical device, showing the ranges of movement at which it is possible to work with a high reliability of this type of laser systems. The concept of an effective circle of confusion from optical imaging is applied for determining a good image formation in laser engraving systems.
