Paper Abstract

The continued advances in high power, high brightness solid state laser has necessitated new tools for use with laser material processing. Some of the challenges of higher power lasers have been met with Reflective Focusing Optic to combat Thermal focus shift and new fiber optic cables to more efficiently deliver the higher power. Conversely the improved brightness has led to new opportunities with patented dual core fibers, advances in remote scanner welding devices and calibration devices for them. This paper will explain recent advances in beam delivery and processing optics for high power, high brightness solid state lasers.
