Paper Abstract

It is of great importance from the experimental point of view, to understand the thermal behavior of the optical components during how power/energy laser irradiation. The study of the heat transfer in the sample volume is necessary in designing and manufacturing high quality optical components. In this context, we discuss the surface heat transfer coefficients influence on the temperature profile, during CO2 laser irradiation of homogeneous optical components. The assumption of zero heat transfer across the sample radial longitudinal sections is also analyzed. Thermal profiles deduced from the heat diffusion equation are plotted for different heat transfer values.
